Spring Break is FINALLY here! Whether you're off to sunny places or planning a "staycation" nearby, don't forget to check a couple of things off your list before you go: if you haven't ordered your 2017- 2018 School Supply Kit, take a few minutes to visit our Membership Toolkit at prairiepto.membershiptoolkit.com.

5th GRADE GUYS' NIGHT OUT THANKS!
Thank you for sharing your 5th Grade guys with us during our 5th Grade Guys' Night Out event on March 16th! The boys had a great time learning all about Twin Groves, exploring the school during the scavenger hunt, mixing it up during dodgeball and becoming locker experts! We couldn't have done it without the outstanding parent and teacher support! Thank you to Principal Jessica Barnes, the Twin Groves Colts panel, our volunteers and to all the dads, grandfathers, uncles and other adults who accompanied the boys during the event!
Your 5th Grade Guys' Night Out Committee: Carrie DeZutter, Michelle Roth and Kari Siegall
