Shown are the October students of the month at Prairie Junior/Senior High School. From left are Apolonio “Appy” Enriquez and Kade Perrin, high school students of the month and Derek Arnzen, junior high student of the month. Appy is such a pleasant person and he has really been working hard to make sure his homework is done and he understands.  He also helps his fellow students whenever needed.   Kade does not know how to waste time; he is always keeping busy, even when he has down time.  He is one of many working on a trophy case for the commons area for the 7th and 8th grade. Derek was the unanimous winner of the student of the month for the 7th and 8th grades.  He works very hard each day to see that his work is done well.  He is kind and caring to all fellow students and adults.  Photo provided by Ryan Hasselstrom.
