During a timeout in the boys game against Grangeville we took a shot of the Prairie decorations on the north wall for the Idaho County Shootout. The large banner at left shows the school fight song while one of the smallest may have been the best. In answer to a Grangeville banner that talked about them bleeding blue and white, there’s a banner just below the B16 one that says, “We bleed red. Like normal people.” Click on the photo for a larger view.

The Junior class is putting on a family movie night at the Prairie High School on December 12th, starting at 6:00pm.  They are showing Inside Out, the Maze Runner, Iron Man 1, and Elf.  It is just $3 to get in the door and families pay no more than $15.
