Gratitude to Our Sponsors

Each year area businesses support Prairie through global sponsorships. Their generous contributions to the Prairie Fund help sustain Prairie's programming. Without their assistance, Prairie would need to raise more funds to provide for its students.

On behalf of the Prairie Fund, the PTA and the Administration, we would like to formally thank our sponsors for their benefactions to our school.

STUCO's Peanut Butter Drive

Help Prairie's Student Council gather as much peanut butter as possible for Harvesters! Bring in one jar or several - every donation helps a family in need!

Thank you for helping Prairie's Student Council make a difference!

Fall Movie Night is This Thursday

There's still time to purchase tickets for Fall Outdoor Movie Night this Thursday at 7:00 p.m. Set up your lawn chairs and blankets at 6:00 and enjoy unlimited popcorn and lemonade!

Tickets are $10 per kid - adults and kids 4 and under are free (this is NOT a drop off event-parents must attend with their kids.) Purchase tickets here , drop off checks made out to Prairie PTA in the office OR purchase tickets at the event.

The Chili Dog food truck will also be there also for those looking to make dinner out of it.

Proceeds go toward the Prairie Experience Fund.

The Prairie Experience Fund

Prairie offers many enrichment opportunities for its students, from Box City in 3rd grade and ROAD in 4th grade to 6th grade leadership. In the past, these "extras" have been funded by private donations and through 5th grade fundraising. The past few years, our fundraising efforts have come up short.

The PTA together with the Prairie Fund and Administration have developed the Prairie Experience Fund, a fund that will benefit the "extras" for every grade level.
