Shop more parties!
There are still parties with openings, so it's not too late if you didn't buy spots at the auction. If you are interested in purchasing them, go to the auction website and click on the "Shop Items" tab, and then click "view all" to see what is available. The parties will be open until Tuesday, March 7.
All items not picked up at the Vox have been delivered to the Prairie front office. Please be timely in picking up your winnings. Ellen and Seretha have everything stored behind their desks.
Thank you again for helping to make the auction a success!
Preschool event Wednesday
Have an incoming Kindergartener? Join us for a library activity this Wednesday from 8:30-9:15 a.m..
Preschool activities are a great way to get your child familiar with Prairie!
March 7- we will be hosting Sean Connolly for 3-6 grade students. Sean will be promoting a new science activity book and hopefully demonstrating some science magic for students. Don't miss out on your chance to purchase autographed copies of this new book.
What a wonderful gift idea! Contact librarian Lori O'Neal with questions about this event.
District transfer policies and deadlines
Sixth grade students wanting to transfer to a middle school other than the school in their home attendance area must complete an online transfer. Students must complete a transfer request when moving from elementary to middle school and from middle to high school.
K-5 students who are currently attending a building on an approved transfer should NOT submit another transfer request for 2017-2018. Elementary students do not need to reapply annually.
All transfer applications are submitted electronically from the district webpage. The online application opens March 1 at 8:00 am and closes April 30 at 5:00 pm.
No allowance is made for transportation to/from school for transfer students. It must be provided by the students' families.
Barring unforeseen circumstances, transfer decisions will be communicated to parents by the district office no later than June 15.
