Free ESE Late Start Before School Program
Late start school days happen 1-2 Wednesdays each month. On late start days, ESE offers a free before school program for all CCS elementary school students. To participate in this program, pre-registration is required.
The ESE late start before school program is offered from 7-8:20 a.m. and school breakfast is provided. The next ESE late start before school program is scheduled for Wed, October 6.
Registration just takes a few minutes and is free. For your child to participate in the ESE late start before school program, they must be enrolled in our EZChildTrack system prior to the beginning of the late start program day. We strongly discourage enrolling your child day-of and may not be able to accept the child into the program.

PTE Walk to School Day - Wednesday, October 6th
The idea behind Walk to School Day is to promote health, safety and physical activity with families and friends in the school community.
Prairie Trace has always had a wonderful number of families and students participating over the years. So, get those shoes ready for walking!
This is a late start day. All students need to arrive by 8:15. Follow the sidewalks to the back of the school!
WE DID IT!!
Thanks to all of our wonderful, generous families, we have hit our fundraising goal of $20,000! Check out the scenes from our Fall Tailgate, including our Human Sundaes - Mrs. Piper and Mr. Reid!

CAFETERIA VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!
help our PTE students dine safely
We need parents just like you to help us in the cafeteria during lunch time. As a cafeteria helper, you will help the children find a seat, open their lunch items, get all the extras (think parmesan cheese, ketchup, napkins, and utensils!), and maintain PTE lunch room standards! ...all while getting to socialize with your kiddos and their friends. (We all love seeing your FB and Instagram selfies!)
This is a way to help out in the school, get to know all of your child's classmates, and interact with the staff at PTE.
MEDIA CENTER VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!
Are you interested in volunteering in the media center this year? We would love your help shelving books, assisting students, and helping with special projects!Send an email to Adrienne Hoagland at email@example.com for details!
