Shown are the April students of the month at Prairie Jr./Sr. High School. From left are Krystin Uhlenkott and Trista Latimer, high school, and Kyleigh Duclos, junior high. Krystin is always responsible, positive, a great student and teacher’s aide.  She is a joy to have in class and to be around! Trista is great!  She always gives 100%.  She has an awesome personality, and cheers everyone up with her contagious laugh that brightens everyone’s day. Kyleigh  is always diligent about her school work, asks for assistance when needed and  helps her peers when she sees a need. She strives to be the best she can be and encourages others as well. Photo provided by Ryan Hasselstrom. Click on the photo for a larger view.
