Prairie Hill Families –
Our “All School Picnic” is June 2nd! It is an all school sack lunch day (outside – weather permitting). To help us better prepare, we need to know if your student needs the school to provide a sack lunch, or if your student will bring a lunch from home.
Forms were sent home with students on May 8th and must be returned by tomorrow, May 13th. If you no longer have the form, click here for the form: Picnic Form. Please complete and return the form to school tomorrow.
Prairie Hill Run/Walk Challenge
Actually, we did it Prairie Hill style! We went over the hill and beyond with donations exceeding $7500! Thank you to all who helped with donations, pledges and company matching forms for our Prairie Hill Run/Walk Challenge. 100% of this money stays at Prairie Hill to help with the needs of our students and staff!
To celebrate reaching our goals, we have a couple fun days planned for next week. Tuesday, May 5th will be Hat Day and Wednesday, May 6th will be Pajama Day. All students will also receive an additional recess next week.
TO: All Open Enrolled Students/Families
All students who live outside of our district boundaries MUST register for busing each and every year. If you intend to use busing for the 2015-2016 school year, please fill out the open enrolled transportation form located at this link: www.tinyurl.com/openenrolltransportation.

What is the Prairie Hill Challenge Run/Walk?
Our final fundraiser for the 2014-15 school year where 100% of the proceeds stay at Prairie Hill! Cash, pledges, donations and company matching forms are accepted to help with PTO expenses.
April 30th is the day and all Hill students will participate. AM preschool and AK will attend a morning session and PM preschool through 4th grade will attend in the afternoon. Fun obstacles will be involved.
Our goal is to raise $6,000 and we have 3 incentives.
- $2K is hat day
- $4K is pajama day
- $6K is an extra recess for each grade
- $6K AND 50% participation (this even includes empty packets returned) we will have ice cream for everyone.
Prairie Hill Challenge Run/Walk donation packets will go home with all students today. Important dates to remember:
- April 10-27 – Fundraiser collection dates
- April 27 – Donation packets must be turned in (even empty ones)
- April 30 – Challenge Run/Walk Day
We would like to take the time to say thank you to all who have helped our Prairie Hill PTO this year. There was great pride in combining the four schools into forming our own path. Together, we have had a fun and successful year and we couldn’t have done it without all of you, so THANK YOU!
Please remember that the underlying purpose of this fundraiser is to raise money for our school. We receive many requests to help our students and staff and with this being our first year, we want to ensure we have a strong foundation for years to come. Our monetary goal of $6,000 requires each of us to participate to the greatest extent possible given our unique financial situations. Your generous donations will be greatly appreciated by the entire Prairie Hill family.
Spring Pictures will be taken at Prairie Hill on Tuesday, April 7th.
Please Note: There is not a make-up day for Spring Pictures.

Just a reminder . . . .
College Community School District will be on Spring Break the week of March 16th. Classes will resume on Monday, March 23rd.
The Scholastic Book Fair is this week, March 9-13. We will be open Monday, Tuesday, and Friday from 8am-4pm and on Wednesday and Thursday from 8am-8pm. This is not a buy one/get one fair, but it is a great way to support our library in our first year, as we get almost 70% of all the profits! You can also purchase online by clicking here. Online sales will be open through March 19. The books will ship to Prairie Hill within 3-5 days, and we still receive the same profit. Thanks in advance for all of your support!
