Forms Due This Friday

The annual Prairie Elementary Snowball Project is ready to help make the holiday season bright for families in need! Students have the opportunity to provide gifts and holiday meals for seven Operation Breakthrough families.
On November 21 & 22, students of families that choose to participate will select a snowball with instructions on providing a toy, meal, or gift card for members of our adopted families. Kindergarten and First Grade students must have parental permission to choose a snowball.  For these students, permission forms were sent home last week and are due this Friday, November 18 .

Order poinsettias from Prairie

Prairie has partnered with Family Tree Nursery to offer red and white poinsettias just in time for the holiday season!

Orders are due 11/18, and will be delivered 12/2.
All proceeds go toward the Prairie Experience Fund. Thank you for supporting Prairie!
