Mrs. Devault's 3rd graders took their turn sewing the pieces together to commemorate Prairie's 150th year. Thank you to Tara Freund and Allison Giffin for showing these students a whole new way to "keep it together."

Getting Ready for the Show

Last week's rehearsal went extremely well and we're getting excited for the main event! Our next rehearsal is 1/29 from 5:00-9:00 - please make sure to have your costumes and anything else needed for your act.

Important upcoming dates:
  • Dress Rehearsal: Friday 1/29 - 5:00-9:00 p.m.
  • Variety Show: Saturday, 2/6 - 3:00-6:00 p.m.
Please contact Meghan Black  with any questions.

The Countdown Begins - the Auction is a Month Away!

Hurry! Don't be late - purchase your tickets today before prices increase to $50 February 7th.
Click here to purchase your tickets. Or, for one day only, stop by the auction table to purchase them in person at the Variety Show.
As if a price increase isn't reason enough, purchasing your tickets before February 7th boosts the odds that your student's class will win a hot chocolate and donut party - the grade that has the highest percentage of parents with tickets will win.
Don't miss out on one of the largest and exciting fundraisers of the year! Who knows, you might be interested in placing a bid to vacation in warm and sunny Mexico!
Thank you for your support!

Keep Turning in your Box Tops

We collect Box Tops for Education all year long! Just clip the box top of the products you buy and send them into school with your student - or drop them in the box in the lobby.
Click here for a list of products that contain box tops.
Even your grocery shopping helps Prairie!
