New Families

Welcome new Prairie Trace families! 

We are so excited to have you at our school and look forward to meeting you soon! 

Please don't hesitate to contact our PTO New Families Chairs, Cat Biddle and Cathy Van Nahmen, with any questions you might have!

We hope you get involved in the PTO at Prairie Trace

Starting in July, you'll start hearing from us. We will send an email asking for volunteers for all our activities like Media Center, Chat-N-Chew, Fall Tailgate and Grandfriend's Event. Just remember to complete a background check before signing up!

August: Look for a Head Room Parent callout! 

September: The first PTO General Membership Meeting of the year. 

Throughout the school year: There are other PTO events that cannot run without volunteers: Family Fun events, Staff and Teacher Appreciation, Chess Club, and Kindy 500 just to name a few! The volunteer interest form is HERE and you'll be contacted by the event chair.

January-March: We will begin filling PTO board positions for the next year. PLEASE consider, as PTE PTO needs a rotating group of volunteers to keep things fresh and running smoothly! Our second PTO General Membership meeting will be in March. 




General volunteers are needed to help throughout the year! Please consider volunteering to help out in the school and at PTO-sponsored events. 

Note that all volunteers must have a criminal history background check on file & have viewed the CCS anti-bullying video

Thank you for volunteering! Email with questions. #PTEFamily

Yes, I want to help!
