Without question or doubt this has been a most challenging year. Yet, despite the hardships and complexity - of which there were many - we persevered, we learned, and we grew. As we reflect upon and celebrate, let us recognize the extraordinary ways in which we pulled together to support the learning and wellbeing of kids (and one another). East Prairie has sought not merely to survive the ongoing pandemic, but to thrive during it. In a world that is uncertain and unstable, our school community has provided care, strength, and kindness to our kids. Thank you for never settling. Thank you for striving to reach new heights. Thank you for keeping the needs of kids first, front, and center.
Wishing you a restorative, enjoyable, healthy, and safe summer! Thank you for all that you do to make East Prairie the very special place it is!

Congratulations to the 4th grade Panther Band, 5th grade Panther Band, 6th grade Concert Band, and 7th & 8th grade Symphonic Band on three incredible performances!
This evening's performance for friends and families was the perfect capstone! It is amazing to see the East Prairie band program grow and thrive during this time. Way to go Mr. Berlinghof and Panthers!!!
