Advanced Welding sponsored a "Shoot for Cash" program during the 2019-2020 basketball season.  Free throws made by both basketball teams notched $5.00 per make.  The girls made 236 free throws ($1,180) in the regular season and the boys made 228 free throws ($1,140).  A check was presented to Prairie High School on Thursday, March 5th for $2,320 to be used  for the high school athletic program.  Advanced Welding will match that same total to be donated to a local charity of their choice.  Prairie High School would like to express our gratitude for the support from Advanced Welding and Ryan and Heather Uhlenkott.  PHS looks forward to working with them in the future.  Pictured with the check is Ryan, Heather and Gage Uhlenkott along with PHS principal Jon Rehder.

6th Graders Make Good Choices a Habit!—Students in Mrs. Kim Schumacher's class were treated to drinks and games at The Habit as part of the school's newly adopted PBIS behavior plan. Cottonwood School District formed a committee to look into a  PBIS program and presented it to the staff at the beginning of the year in-service.  The staff then took the information and designed a program to fit each building with a Pirate theme of aaRRRgh - focusing on positive behavior through Responsibility, Respect, and Readiness. You may have seen postcards recipients in the paper throughout this school year from Jr/Sr High students. At PES, students aren’t sent postcards but have been earning R3 cards. The cards are tallied each month at the assemblies and then given back to the classroom teachers. From there different teachers have chosen a variety of ways to encourage students to keep up their positive behavior. Kim Schumacher, 6th-grade teacher, created an R3 store where kids could use cards to purchase items. For instance, for (2) R3 cards you can get the teacher's rolly chair for a day or get a fruit snack. There are also items that cost (5) or (10) R3 cards. For those who like to save for a larger reward, she developed a list of things that cost (20) R3 cards. All six of her students saved (20) cards each to purchase drinks and games at The Habit with their teacher. According to Schumacher, a good time was had by all and definitely worth the cost of the coffees!
