  • Principal's March Message

    Posted by Mrs. Dvorchak at 3/1/2017 8:00:00 AM

    Prairie Families,

    Thanks for attending our February conferences. It is truly important that teachers and parents meet and discuss student progress. For many of our grade levels, our spring conferences are student led. Goal setting and self-assessment are very important components of our curriculum and promote student growth. This was a great opportunity for your child to share their strengths, goals and areas for continued growth with you. Communication and strong relationships between home and school truly make a valuable difference in student learning.


    Our Adult Social will be held on Saturday, March 18 at Elements in downtown Naperville.  I hope to see many of you there enjoying time with staff and parents from the Prairie community. We have an amazing community that truly supports students and their continued growth! Thanks so much for attending and supporting Prairie through the Silent Auction.

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
