We need your help! The Prairie PTO is all about building our school community, by holding special events and supporting our teachers. Research shows that when parents are involved in their children's education, the children are more likely to:
• earn better grades
• score higher on tests
• pass their classes
• attend school regularly
• have better social skills
• show improved behavior
• be more positive in their attitude toward school
• complete homework assignments
• graduate and continue their education

Many of our special events are in jeopardy! Can you imagine if your kids don't receive a yearbook at the end of the year? Withput adequate parent involvement, we cannot make these events happen. No experience required! WE CAN HELP YOU GET INVOLVED. Just reach out and we will be happy to help get you started!!
