Dear Prairie Wind Friends and Families,

On behalf of the Prairie Wind Team, Happy New Year!!!  While we may be experiencing the chills of winter weather and the bluster wind on our Prairie, we can look forward to spring days ahead! It is hard to believe our first two quarters of this school year are behind us. It has been a joy to observe the growth our students have made and the collaborative teaching and learning that exists each and every day at PW. We are fortunate to have such incredible students, staff, and families within the doors of PW! I hear over and over in our classrooms and hallways, “Mrs. Weigel we love our teachers!”

Our staff has made outstanding efforts to work collaboratively within teams to meet the needs of all students. Our Professional Learning Community framework has strengthened our focus on student learning and we strive for increased academic success for ALL students. All 1st through 6th grade students will experience our new statewide assessment- WY-TOPP in upcoming weeks and this assessment will serve as a valuable student data point as we measure student progress toward year end goals.

We have seen such positive response from our students with regard to school routines, expectations, and procedures. We hear from numerous stakeholders the positive interactions that exist among student and staff interactions as they visit our school, hallways, classrooms, lunchroom and playground areas!  We welcomed a few new students/families, and staff members to our PW community following the holiday break and our new faces were greeted with such warm welcomes from our PW community. PW welcomes: Rudi Smith, General Para, Trudy Soland, SPED Para and Kaye Fintus, Resource Para.

Thank you to our Parent Teacher Organization for all you do to support our school!  We value our strong partnership with parents!  Please be sure to check our school website on a regular basis for updated school/district information. We look forward to the opportunities the final half of our school year will bring! If I can do anything to assist you in days ahead, please don’t hesitate to let me know. 

Stay warm and know that sounds of birds chirping is not that far away!
