Shown are the students of the month at Prairie Jr./Sr. High School.  Jr. High Student of the month Sierra Latimer, left, is always willing to help other students or staff.  She has a bubbly personality and brings a positive attitude to everything she does.  She works hard every day, is kind, thoughtful, helpful, and always contributes well to class discussions. High School Students of the Month are Cheryl Gehring, middle,  and Kade Perrin, right. Cheryl completes her class work on time, is not disruptive and has a great attitude.  She’s the kind of student that sometimes gets overlooked because she comes to class, works hard, and is very quiet. She is a pleasure to have in class. Kade is a great example to other students.  He’s responsible, offers ideas to class discussions, and studies beyond what is taught in class.  He is also a well rounded person and enjoys the company of fellow students.

Prairie Elementary kindergartners, first graders and second graders enjoyed a presentation put on by Delta Dental of Idaho.  “Captain Tooth” taught the children about the importance of brushing and flossing their teeth each day.  It was also an interactive presentation that allowed the children to share their knowledge about dental health.  Some kindergartners and first graders were selected to be the “ tooth fairy” and some “teeth” so that the demonstration of the proper methods of brushing and flossing could be shown.   All of the students were given new tooth brushes, a brushing chart and a two-minute timer to help them remember the importance of brushing twice a day for two minutes each time.  We would like to thank Delta Dental for stopping by our school and sharing their presentation with us. Captain Tooth is shown brushing the plaque, food, and germs off of the “teeth” (Jordan, Carter, Mary and Trinity). Photo provided by Cindy Schumacher. Click on the photo for a larger view.
