Dear Prairie Wind Families and Friends,

I am hopeful you all enjoyed time together over our recent spring break. The last three months have been complete with many exciting happenings at Prairie Wind (March Madness!). As we approach our final weeks ahead with our students, our teams have worked incredibly hard collaborating on student learning and utilizing student evidence as valuable information in making instructional decisions within our classrooms as we head into our 4th quarter.

We celebrated an opportunity to host a Naturalization Ceremony and were honored to have several guests of join our school community for the event. I was extremely proud of our students and staff who did an exceptional job in organizing and sharing wonderful student messages of hope and positivity to all of those who were honored. Students also had a March visit from the Colorado Rockies mascot, none other than Dinger himself!  Students were able to hear a powerful message surrounding anti- bullying and positive student expectations! 

Thank you to our Parent Teacher Organization and our Fine Arts team who provided a Community Night of the Arts also in March!  It was very well attended and showcased much of our students’ work!  I also had an opportunity to attend the Community Library Arts display and enjoyed visiting with many of you as we celebrated the amazing talents of our students!  If you haven’t already, please plan to join our PTO for the annual golf tournament. We need all registrations submitted prior to the last week in April-yes, it’s time to dust off the clubs!

Our PW team has been working diligently in preparing students for our upcoming WY-TOPP (Wyoming Test of Proficiency and Progress) assessment. Our testing window is April 16th through May 11th. Individual teachers will be sharing schedule information with you and please make every effort to ensure your student is in attendance during our testing schedule. While this is a new assessment for our students, I look forward to an opportunity for our students to show what they have learned this year.

I continue to be in awe of our amazing students, staff, and families within our PW community. We recognized numerous students during our 3rd quarter awards recognition and celebrated tons of student progress!  We appreciate your continued support and look forward to another successful two months of our school year together!
