    Prairie Families,

    Our Adult Social was outstanding!  The Prairie community is truly special and it was very evident at this special event.  A very special thank you to Suzy Sharpe, Shannon Temple and their amazing team of volunteers for the countless hours they spent planning and organizing this event.  Thank you to all who attended, donated, and assisted with our Adult Social; it took many hands to create this fun night for all!  Thank you to our generous parents who participated in our Silent Auction.   Your generosity was overwhelming and will impact students at Prairie in positive ways. 

    Our kindergarten preview was a huge success.  Many incoming kindergartners and their parents joined us to learn about what to expect next year as they enter Prairie School.   If you know anyone who still needs to register a kindergartner please direct them to our central office located at 203 W. Hillside.  We are very excited to welcome the class of 2030 to Prairie! 

    Our 3-5th graders recently enjoyed their second round of rock climbing.  The students were highly engaged and worked hard to be successful both at climbing and assisting peers.  A big thank you goes out to Prairie parents who volunteered to help our students climb safely. 

    Mark your calendars for the Volunteer/Staff Appreciation Luncheon this spring.  This annual luncheon is the school’s way of demonstrating appreciation for everyone’s efforts.  All staff and ALL volunteers are invited to attend on Tuesday, April 25.  The luncheon is planned for 11:15 -1:00 in the LRC so attendees may arrive as their schedules allow.  It is requested that volunteers planning to attend RSVP to Prairie School by Friday, April 21 by either:

    • Calling the school office by 630.420.6348
    • Sending an email to Barb Butusov, Principal’s Secretary at bbutusov@naperville203.org
    • Printing and completing the following note and returning it to the school office

    Tracy Dvorchak- Principal

Strategic Blueprint

  • District 203’s FOCUS 2020 Strategic Blueprint

    Posted by Superintendent Dan Bridges at 6/27/2014
    FOCUS 2020 is the strategic plan for comprehensive improvement between 2014 and 2020, designed in response to community feedback, best practice, and a vision for the future. Ultimately, this blueprint will advance the fulfillment of the district’s mission.
    FOCUS 2020’s foundation is the Future Focus Community Engagement process that occurred over the course of a year where hundreds of members from across the community provided feedback to the district leadership regarding areas such as facilities, finances, measuring student success, and programs of study. Learn more about Future Focus by clicking on the specific “Quick Link” to the left of this text.
    The Blueprint includes four “Strategic Focus” areas, namely to:
    1. Design and implement effective practices that promote learning experiences for all.
    2. Foster a high-performance culture focused on student learning.
    3. Steward resources effectively to promote student learning.
    4. Effective communication and community relations.
    Each Strategic Focus then establishes “Commitments.” These commitments are what the district leadership pledges to accomplish within a distinct timeframe. Each commitment then includes a detailed “Action Plan” which will be accessible by the public upon final draft.
    District administrators provided an update on Blueprint Commitments to the Board of Education at the July 27, 2015 meeting.  To watch that presentation, please click here
