Congratulations to our February Students of the Month at Prairie Jr./Sr. High. From left are Stephanie Jungert and Todd Ott, high school students of the month and Carson Forsman, jr. high student of the month. Stephanie has a positive, hard-working attitude as well as a very contagious laughter.  She can really brighten a room?  As a student she always works hard and is very responsible. Todd has a cheerful attitude in and out of class.  He loves to help out in class, and he is a major contributor to the laughter in our school. Carson is an exceptional student who always has his work done.  He loves to gain the knowledge that teachers share with him.  He is happy, thankful and helpful at all times.  Photo provided by Ryan Hasselstrom.
