Dear Prairie Wind Families and Friends,

Welcome Back! We Missed You!!

On behalf of our entire staff, we would like to welcome our new and returning families to the 2018-19 school year.  It is with great honor and much enthusiasm that we embark upon another exciting school year with our students, staff and families. Much planning, and hard work has gone into preparing for a very successful school year.  

All teachers and support staff have spent hours preparing materials, creating child-centered classrooms, collaborating and reviewing student data. Our classrooms are beginning to look amazing! Our office staff have registered new students and have been busy putting together school information packets to be sent home with all students, as well as organizing lots of new materials and they look forward to assisting you throughout the school year! Additionally, I would like to offer my sincere thanks and appreciation to our custodial team. They worked diligently throughout the summer to clean and ensure our school is “student ready!”  You will notice improved facility needs both inside and outside!  

I would also like to extend a special welcome to our incoming Kindergarten students who are new to our schools. I know that this class of 2029-30 is a welcome addition to our community. All PW families will be receiving an email sent to the email address on file in Infinite Campus on August 24th at 4:00 p.m. indicating your child’s teacher for the upcoming school year. . As our new school year approaches, you will be receiving newsletters from the school office and communication from classroom teachers. 

We are very much looking forward to our students’ arrival and our hallways being filled with the hustle and bustle that has been absent all summer. We continue to be proud of our school community and the positive experiences ahead for our students!  Please know that we have an open door policy, and we welcome any opportunity to meet with you. We are looking forward to our collaboration in providing a safe and nurturing environment as well as a challenging and diverse curriculum.  Don’t forget to bookmark and visit the Prairie Wind website,  Coming soon, the School Way app which will have the latest in events and information.

“I WONDER… OPEN HOUSE” event is scheduled for Monday, August 27th  4:00 p.m.-6:00 p.m. with a welcome in the gymnasium with all PW staff prior to visiting classrooms.  Kindergarten families and students will meet at 3:00 p.m. in the Amphitheater and then travel to classrooms. Our first day with students is Tuesday, August 28th.

We look forward to a FANTASTIC year!
