Parent Conferences/Halloween Parties

I hope you are all enjoying a beautiful fall!!  This is such a great time of year! 

Parent/Teacher Conferences
We have one of our most important school events coming up on Friday - Parent/Teacher Conferences.  In order for our students to be as successful as possible, all of us need to work together as a team.  Parent/Teacher conferences provide a very important opportunity for teachers to meet with every family about their students' needs and successes.  This communication is extremely important because you can provide information about your child that we may not know or understand. 

Please keep in mind that, while Parent/Teacher Conferences are only held once a year, we hope to keep the lines of communication open during the entire school year.  If you have questions or concerns at any time, it is important to communicate with your child's teacher immediately before a small concern becomes much bigger. 

Halloween Party/Parade
Our Halloween Parade/Parties will be held on Friday, October 29 at 2:00 pm.  The Parade will start at 2:00 in the bus lane, with parties to follow.  Parents are, of course, welcome to attend!  A map will be available on the website that shows the parade route and good places for parent viewing.  Please note that we will not have any parking in the bus lane or on the East and North sides of the building so that our route is clear.  We also ask that the front entrance of the building and the bus lane remain clear so that we can get the students out of the building and ready for the parade. 

Break the Rules Week and Cougar Pride Night Pictures
A big Cougar thank you goes out to everyone who participated in the Break the Rules Week and Cougar Pride Night pictures.  We were able to raise a lot of money to help our Prarieland families, which further demonstrates the extremely caring nature of the Prairieland community! 

As always, please contact me with any questions, concerns, or celebrations!  It's a GREAT day to be a Cougar!
