The boys and girls basketball teams are pictured with a $2500 check from the Prairie Booster Club.  The school purchased 2 Pixellot cameras for installation in the high school gym and the football field.  The purchase of these cameras will give people an opportunity to view games/events online.  This is a great investment for the school for people who are unable to attend due to restrictions, living out of the area, health, etc.  Our goal is to have spectators in the gym and football/track complex, but when we don't have that opportunity this will be a great way to air the events.  We hope to have the cameras delivered and installed over Christmas break.  We will keep you posted once everything is up and running.  All events will be aired on the NFHS Network.  Thank you to the Prairie Booster Club for their continued support for all the kids, it is much appreciated!  Go Pirates.

A winter wonderland was created at the Greencreek Hall on Saturday, November 7th for a "1950's Holiday in Vermont", the 23rd Annual Mystery Night. And while it made the drive home a bit frightful, God transformed the outdoors into a Winter Wonderland as well! An early snow storm got everyone into the spirit to celebrate the winter theme. We are so grateful to all who participated in the online auctions or purchased a ticket for the Grand Prize Raffle of $10,000. Our big winners this year were William and Lynn Goeckner. They are able to spend their winnings at any of our fine sponsors: Bud's Powersports, Cottonwood Foods, Les Schwab Tire Center - Grangeville, Lindsley's Furniture & Appliance, B&A Performance Auto, Intermountain Feed & Mercantile and Sonnen Meats.
