Prairie High School continues to participate in the GEAR UP college-readiness grant.  One of the yearly requirements of this grant is that the GEAR UP students have an opportunity to complete a service learning project.  One of this year's projects was completed December 17th, when Ryan Hasselstrom's first semester Personal Finance students went to the elementary school to read a book about Wants vs. Needs to younger students. Each 3rd grader from Vicki Riener's class listened as a high schooler read the book, "Those Shoes," by Maribeth Boelts.  Mr. Hasselstrom lead a discussion about wants and needs.  The students also worked together on a needs and wants worksheet.  Each of Mrs. Riener's students received a copy of the book to keep, courtesy of GEAR UP grant funds.  The GEAR UP program at PHS is coordinated by Loretta Poxleitner. Photo provided by Ryan Hasselstrom. See more photos in link at left.  Click on the photo for a larger view.
