2018–2019 Ballot for Open Positions on the Executive Board

The Nominating Committee of Prairie Elementary is proud to present the 2018–19 Ballot for open positions for the Executive Board.

Co-president: Jenny Share
Recording secretary: Melissa Levin
Treasurer: Jianing Yang or Chen Cheng

An official vote will take place on May 21 at 7 PM at Prairie Elementary. All PTO members are welcome.  

Open Committee Head Positions

We need volunteers to lead out exciting PTO Committees so that the events our kids enjoy can continue. Currently, we do not have any committee heads for many of our communities, including Dessert Day, Yearbook, School Store, and Special Lunch. These are activities the kids love and they help support our school community. We are at risk for losing these wonderful events. Please take some time to review the open positions and keep the Prairie Pride spirit high!!! If you would like to fill one of these great positions, please visit the PRAIRIE PTO MEMBERSHIP TOOLKIT. If you have any questions, please contact Karen Abrams or Ivy Freeman.

5th-Grade Year-End Class Party (LAST DAY to sign up is May 23!)

The year-end party is held during school and is an afternoon of fun for the kids to enjoy before heading off to Twin Groves in the fall. This year's party will be Wed., May 30, from 12:20–2:45 PM. There will be a special lunch and dessert, both provided from Culver's.

We have great entertainment planned to make the day unforgettable! Clowning Around will provide the kids with team-building activities, relay races, and other fun games. Bizar Entertainment will rock the house with a DJ and there will be a photo booth to capture the day's excitement!

Please register at PRAIRIE PTO MEMBERSHIP TOOLKIT to make your lunch, T-shirt, and class gift donation selections. The LAST DAY to sign up for the 5th-Grade Party is May 23.
