Dear Prairie Trace Families,

The staff at Prairie Trace had a great first week with your children. The students joined us with a positive attitude, ready to learn, and make a strong IMPACT on our Prairie Trace community! We know this is going to be an awesome year filled with great opportunities to learn and engage! 

Getting into the habit of daily attendance is more important than ever. It helps to:

  • Reduce stress

  • Make it easier to connect with friends and teachers 

  • Support learning 

Please make sure you are communicating any absences, late arrivals, and early pickups with the office via School Dismissal Manager and your classroom teacher. Also, it is best if appointments can be made outside of the school day or during your child’s lunch and recess time. As per CCS policy student pick ups should not occur after 2 pm..

If you are a parent of a walker, please do not park on Haverton Road to pick up your child.  Buses have a hard time getting through, and this becomes very dangerous for our students.  Thank you! 

We have many events coming up in the near future, so please mark your calendars: 

  • August 14-August 29:  NWEA Assessments 

  • August 22:  Meet the Teacher for Grades K-2 (parents only)
    Kindergarten:  5:00-5:30pm 
    1st Grade:  5:35-6:05pm
    2nd Grade:  6:10-6:45pm

  • August 22:  Ambassador applications due for interested 4th and 5th graders 

  • August 23:  Late Start  - School starts at 8:20 AM

  • August 23:  Meet The Teacher for Grades 3-5 (parents only)
    3rd Grade:  5:00-5:30pm 
    4th Grade:  5:35-6:05pm
    5th Grade:  6:10-6:45pm

  • August 24: WPTE applications due for interested 5th graders  

We are working to make PTE a place where everyone is safe and learning each and every day! We will always do our best to listen and partner with you, so all of our students can have a successful year. Do not hesitate to reach out to me with questions or concerns.
