Dear Prairie Trace Elementary Families, 

Welcome to 2023! We are so excited to have the students back this semester. I can’t believe we are already halfway through the year. The second semester is always very busy with programs, assessments, spring break, field trips, field days, and much more! I’m sure this semester will go as fast as the first semester did! 

Please make sure you have your calendar updated with the January events: 

1/16: No School - Martin Luther King, Jr. Day 
1/17: 5th grade Author Visit during Specials 
1/18: 5th Grade Parent Information Night at Clay 7:00-8:00 PM 
1/19: 5th Grade Activity Night at Clay 4:45-6:45 PM 
1/20: K-2 Winter Performance 1:30 PM 

The students came back from break energized and excited. They had a lot of stories to share with their teachers and classmates. Mrs. Browne and I met with each grade level last week to share our second semester expectations. We love working together to make our school a great place! It is a privilege to serve your children, and we hope each and every one of them is excited to join us each day. 

I’m looking forward to a great 2023! 

Kim Piper
