New for 3rd Grade Boys this Spring:
Let Me Run is a running program for 3rd and 4th grade boys, but it’s more about the boy than the run. Counteracting the negative pressures society places on boys, the program uses running as the vehicle to inspire, teach, and reach them. Combining exercise with fun activities and lessons, our trained coaches inspire boys to be courageous enough to be themselves, build healthy relationships, and live an active lifestyle. Registration at Prairie Heights Elementary is now open! The spring season starts on March 26th, meets Tuesdays and Thursdays after school for an hour and fifteen minutes (4:00-5:15 pm, please pick up students right after as no one will be in the office after 4pm), and ends with a 5k race on Saturday, May 11th at Kirkwood Community College.
*Practice the week of March 26th will only consist of Tuesday as Late Night Conferences are Thursday March 28th.The following week will continue as normal.

Due to the impending weather on Saturday, Heights has postponed the Fun Night scheduled for tomorrow night. The new date is to be determined.
The weather this January has been challenging for staff, students and families. You might wonder if any learning has taken place at all! Be assured, when the weather has allowed us to be at school, we have been BUSY! Here are some pictures of just a few of the learning activities that happened in January 2019.
