Dear PG Parent,

Please take a minute of your time to review the headlines below:

DISTRICT NEWS

Special Bd. Meeting
On November 5th at 6:30 p.m. , the Prairie Grove District 46 Board of Education will hold a Special Meeting at our school. The reason for the special meeting is to hear from representatives from the Siemens Corporation on how we can best improve the air quality, comfort and safety for our children and staff in District 46. For many years there has been discussion about ways in which to improve our facility for both staff and children, and we have now arrived at a point from which we can hear about possible solutions for our facility. Specifically, the performance contracting company will show the board what options it has for building improvement centered around air quality as it relates to both heating and cooling. A part of the presentation will also detail the financial savings the district could see by improving its current air delivery systems.

As this process certainly involves all of us, please feel free to attend this meeting on November 5th to learn more about ways in which we can improve our facility into a quality environment for both teaching and learning.

Superintendent's Coffee/Open Door
Dr. Phil Bender will be holding a Superintendent's Coffee on Thursday, October 30, from 2-3:30 in the junior high conference room.  The topic will be improvement, academics and facilities. This is rescheduled from October 16th.

Parent Teacher Conferences
Parent Teacher Conferences will be held over the next two days for both buildings for the first time in years. Please let us know via email how your experience was during conference time and how we can review our practices for the future. Elementary Conferences have been scheduled ahead of time, but other staff are available to see you as well. Support staff are in locations that are meant to be easier for you to find. We do have one location change for the elementary however. You can see the change in the attached letter (Elementary Conference Flyer). Junior High Conferences are typically unscheduled, but I have attached the flyer with the hours once again (JH Conference Flyer).
