Each year the PTO has organized the Prairie Stomp Fun Run for Prairie Elementary School. The Prairie Stomp raises money for the school, promotes healthy habits, and builds community! Each grade would run laps together outside, doing their best to run or walk as many laps as they could in about 20 minutes with a DJ playing fun music. This year, due to COVID-19, we are unable to have the Prairie Stomp at school. However, we would love for Prairie Elementary students to participate at home for Stomp Your Yard!! Students and staff can choose to run, walk, bike, rollerblade, play basketball, jump rope, or whatever exercise that you enjoy and gets you outside! Our goal is to raise $10,000. This year the money will be used to get supplies out to all students, both hybrid and remote learners. Safety protocols such as quarantining and sanitizing books makes it harder for kids to get the books they want in a timely manner. We would like to help build up classroom libraries so there are more books available to students. We also strive to help teachers continue with the ongoing project of adding more culturally inclusive books to their collections. Other supplies that could be purchased with the money raised could be materials & resources to support virtual/hybrid learning and social emotional learning. Classmunity is a safe and easy way to donate to the Prairie PTO online. However, we know some families prefer sending cash and checks. Families will have the option to donate cash and checks using a collection envelope that will be sent home with hybrid students. Virtual students will receive their collection envelopes during the supply pick up on Oct. 7. The collection envelopes can be returned to the building during the following supply pick up on Oct. 28 or mailed back to the school address anytime during the month of October. Thank you for your support!
