Congratulations to our November Students of the Month at Prairie Junior/Senior High School. From left they are Pixie Jones, junior high and Tucker Hibbard who is holding Brandon Anderson, high school. Pixie is kind and cheerful at all times.  She works hard and has a great attitude – and is always willing to help others in need.  Tucker is a great kid who is helpful and respectful at all times. He volunteers to work concession stands and helps clean after events.  Brandon has a great work ethic and a “cute” sense of humor.  He is friendly and helpful, and overall just a nice kid!
