Dear Prairie Wind Families and Friends,


As we come to the end of our first quarter, I am amazed at the incredible work and accomplishments of our entire school community; students, staff, and families. It has been a joy to observe our students make such positive connections with our Prairie Wind Staff Team and with each other over the last nine weeks. We received great news early this fall as Wyoming School Performance Ratings were released based on our spring WY-TOPP (Wyoming Test of Proficiency and Progress) assessment.  Prairie Wind Rating was: MEET EXPECTATIONS. This is a result of collective efforts from all students, staff and families and a commitment to a focus on the “right work.” We can also be very proud of the positive school culture that lives in the Prairie Wind school community. So many visitors who visit our school, take time to share with us the positive interactions and work that they observe and feel in our hallways, classrooms, lunchroom, and playground!

 We were joined by Central High students and staff as we kicked off our anti-bullying celebration recently and had several amazing anti-bullying t-shirt designs submitted by students as well as a school wide anti bullying video message created by students!  These are great opportunities for students to have a positive voice and share in positive contributions to our school community. 

We will highlight several students, staff and family members as we celebrate 1st quarter work during our November 8, 1st quarter assembly celebration, which will include a Veteran’s Day message from one of our Prairie Wind Family Members. We appreciate and honor all of our military family members who are now or previously serving our country. THANK YOU for your service.

Thank you to our Parent Teacher Organization for all of the 1st quarter events, activities, and support that you have provided.  Our students and staff have enjoyed the fun you have brought to us!

On behalf of our entire school community, thank you for your continued support and partnering!  It remains an honor and privilege to serve with you, your students, and our staff team. I look forward to seeing you in days ahead! WE ARE ALL IN!


My Best,

Lisa Weigel, Principal
