Congratulations to the January Students of the Month at Prairie Jr./Sr. High School. From left are Jacey Rambo, junior high, and Molly Schwartz and Dan Leonard, high school. Jacey always has such a positive attitude.  She is respectful to her classmates and teachers.  She works hard at all times to perform her very best in all classes, and if needed will ask questions to make sure she is on the right track.  Molly is a ray of sunshine, even in the winter months.  She is a great student who is kind to every person in the school.  In addition, she is always willing to help the cooks in the kitchen, or anyone else who is in need in any way.  Dan is always on task, not afraid to ask for help when needed and gives his best effort every day.  He is one of those kids that teachers love to have in class because he is always enjoyable to be around!
