Dear Families,

Welcome to a new school year at Prairie Wind!  I am so thrilled to be joining PWES this year!  We are excited to welcome students back to a new year full of some changes, but still filled with staff members who are so excited to get students back in our classrooms.  Although there will be some new challenges this year, we are still all in!  We are working on making this year a year where we support one another, are kind to all, and we all give our best to learn.  I have already witnessed firsthand the collaborative nature of our staff, and our commitment to create a school community where children thrive at PWES.  My hope is that all children will LOVE school and that we all work together to nurture a learning environment that is positive, safe, warm, and is a fun place to learn and grow.

Students are scheduled to begin the 2020-2021 school year on August 31st (which is a change from the original schedule) in person.  We will follow the LCSD#1 Re-entry plan, but please also review the Prairie Wind re-entry plan for questions you might have about what in-person learning will look like specifically at PWES.  If there are still questions that are unanswered, please call or email me (

We are working on setting up our back-to-school Open House.  The format will be different, but families will be receiving information on the Open House next week.  I look forward to getting to know our students and families!

We will continue to communicate upcoming events and important information.  I know that this year especially, communication and partnership between families and school is critical.  I will be sending out more information in the next two weeks regarding the beginning of the school year and ways we can partner together to make the transition back to school as successful as possible for all of our students.  Thank you for partnering with us!

I am honored to serve as the principal at Prairie Wind, and I am committed to keeping our students, families, and staff as safe as possible while still doing our best to make this school year an amazing experience for students.  I am looking forward to having a great year with you and your student!
