Happy hat day!
Jazz Band 1 and Advanced Band were just informed that they received Division 1 (Superior) Ratings at IGSMA (Virtual) District Contest! Jazz Band 1 even received a perfect score from one judge. Both bands therefore qualified for State Competition, had it been held this year. Fantastic work, Panthers!! While the in-person contest was originally scheduled for mid-March, it transitioned into an online format where recordings of the bands performing could be sent in for adjudication instead. The results took some time due to the ever-changing nature of world events, but the results are finally in, and we could not be more proud of the band students! Their hard work on challenging music certainly paid off.

Announcement: TIME CHANGE TO THE PRAIRIE GROVE BUS NEIGHBOR PARADE SCHEDULED FOR TOMORROW, WEDNESDAY, APRIL 8TH: NEW TIME IS 3:00 PM TO 3:30 PM. This is to allow many of the Prairie Grove Teachers and Staff to be able to participate after their day of E-Learning. We are all very excited to see everyone tomorrow!!
Hello Prairie Grove Families: On Wednesday, April 8th, between 2:30 pm and 3:00 pm, the Prairie Grove Bus Drivers want to give their students a shout out to say “We miss all of you” by driving through the neighborhoods. Our buses will drive slowly up and down as many streets as possible waving and tooting their horns. In keeping with the social distancing guidelines, we ask that everyone stay at home and wave to the buses from their windows, doors, or driveways. Please do not go to the bus stop. Also, we cannot stop to talk. Please know that the Prairie Grove Bus Drivers truly miss seeing all their students’ smiling faces and we hope that everyone stays safe and well.
Unfortunately due to this year's COVID-19 crisis, we have had to cancel our Mobile Dentist visit to PG that was scheduled for the end of this month. We look forward to bringing them back to our school next year. Stay healthy and safe!
Here is what Remote Learning in FACS looks like!! The assignment: Create a menu using recipes that you have researched or have at home - include a main dish, two sides, and a healthy dessert item.*I think the "healthy" dessert is practicing social distancing and is staying away!
