November students of the month at Prairie Jr./Sr. High Brooklyn Riener, left, junior high, and Josie Peery, right, senior high, are shown. Not shown is Noah Arnzen. Brooklyn always has a bright smile on her face.  Her thoughtful enthusiasm towards her classmates and for her class work is encouraging to all she is around. Josie has a positive attitude in class and is genuinely kind and compassionate to her fellow students.  She moved her desk next to a student who was sitting alone.  She’s a great kid!
