Friday's Family Dance!

Thank you to the PTA for throwing a fabulous family bash this past Friday night!  The annual preschool through fifth grade Family Dance was well attended and just the right amount of spooky and scary!
The event was an upbeat and enjoyable way for our community to come together and just have some fun!  
We are looking forward to Middle School Rec Night this coming Friday.  There will be a DJ, dancing, sports, pizza, snacks, friends, and of course a costume contest!

Recess sting!

Just kidding!  Thank you to Officer Wilken for his constant and positive presence at our recess and lunch times to kick off the year!
These efforts are part of the ongoing collaboration between East Prairie and the Skokie Police Department.  In addition to ensuring the safety and wellbeing of all of our children, our shared goal is to further develop mutually caring and trusting relationships.

Flashback Friday

This past week a special delivery was made to our school of some class and school photographs from the early 1960s.

Cooperation & collaboration

We recently took some of our teambuilding challenges and applied them to our very own Leadership Team.  The pictures speak for themselves.  Aside from having lots of fun and sharing some laughs, the activity brought our team together and allowed us to further explore the importance of communication and collaboration.
A big thank you to our teacher team for being open-minded and willing to run with just about anything!
