Parents, Students and Neighbors! Welcome to the 2015-2016 school year at Prairie Grove! I can tell you that this upcoming year promises to be filled with many wonderful opportunities associated with learning and other activities that will stimulate our students to the next level! Our goal is to insure that each student that walks through our doors will achieve to his/her highest academic potential. Our entire staff, from teachers and paraprofessionals to custodians and food service, stands ready to assist, guide and direct our children to new and higher levels of expectations!
My goal as your superintendent is to focus on leading our school district to ‘Stardom’! I will continue to work with parents and community to become school ‘super stars’, making our schools the best they can be. Student achievement and relationship development are always at the forefront of my work!
Our Strategic Plan will continue to guide the work of the District through this next school year. Open Door Meetings with the Superintendent and Superintendent Coffees (Supt. meeting schedule) will continue throughout the school year. A community based Facilities Committee will be formed soon to tackle the ever-emerging issues of our aging building while looking at ways to better utilize the space that we have.
I invite each and every one of you to become a part of our Prairie Grove family! I have been told numerous times the reason most of you live in this great community is, in part, because of our schools. Be an active participant! I enjoy the opportunity to speak with you and listen to your concerns and needs for your children. Together, lets make this the best school year ever!
Dr. Phil Bender, Superintendent
