Dear Prairie Families,
Prairie Pride is still in full force! There is so much to be proud of at Prairie Elementary!
I continue to be very proud and humbled to be a part of such an inspiring school community! Thank you to our amazing teachers and dedicated parents for making Prairie a wonderful place for students to grow and learn each day.
In April, District 203 held its annual awards celebration. The following staff members/ volunteers were honored on this special night:
Anne Schinske- Classroom Teacher

Thank you to all of these important members of our Prairie Community for your dedication to our school and your amazing efforts on behalf of our students!
This May we will take some time to celebrate the careers of seven amazing Prairie Staff members who will retire at the conclusion of this year. The following Prairie Staff are retiring at the conclusion of this year:
Becki Brophy, Special Education Assistant
Judi Buerger, Special Education Assistant
Anne Hartman, School Nurse
Patti Martin, School Social Worker
Laurie Petit, Instrumental Music-Orchestra
Ann Schinske, Vocal Music
Mary Young, School Secretary
We will honor these staff members at an after school reception for all Prairie families on May 24 from 2:45-4:00. Please plan to stop in at Prairie to thank these amazing educators for their dedication to Prairie students. Prairie students and staff wish our retirees a happy, healthy retirement.
We would like to wish the best of luck to the following Prairie staff members as they embark on new adventures. Sarah Cain will join the Elmwood staff as their Assistant Principal. They are truly lucky to have such a smart and caring administrator join their staff. Zach Ernst will join the Scott School staff as their new Assistant Principal. We know that he will bring his energy and talents to this school community as he serves in his new role. Good luck to you both!
Next year, Mr. Brian Zallis will join Prairie as our new Assistant Principal. Brian comes to us from Maplebrook and Scott Schools where he has served as Assistant Principal for the past three years. He has experience in the classroom and in both high school and junior high. I know you will find him warm, approachable and truly child centered! He plans to attend our May 16 Home & School meeting and will visit on Prairie Day to begin to become familiar with our community. Welcome to Prairie!
Never Stop Learning,
