As today is our final school day...WE DID IT! TOGETHER! It is the togetherness that makes the accomplishment of bringing another school year to a close so meaningful and special. It takes a strong sense of community and care to raise a child, and we have an incredible team to help make that happen in the very best of ways.
To our families, thank you for your trust, support, and care; throughout not just this year but all of them. You are your child’s first teacher, their advocate, mentor, and rock. Without you none of this is possible.
To our teachers, thank you. It is moments like these where we get to pause, reflect, and recognize the profound nature of our work. You would be hard pressed to find a more committed and caring group of educators than those who have guided your child(ren) throughout this year. On behalf of our teacher team, we are honored to play a role in each of your lives.
To our kids, WOW! YOU DID IT! You faced unparalleled hardship with poise, dignity, perseverance, and empathy. The world today looks vastly different than the one when we first entered this new school building two years ago. Each day you are building the skills, knowledge, and mindset to continue to transform the world in ways that are equitable, just, and sustainable. You have a voice, you have agency, you have power - and we look forward to the stories each of you will write with it.
Wishing you a restorative, enjoyable, and healthy summer! Thank you for all that you do to make East Prairie the very special place it is!

On June 1st we will hold the first ever “Paint the Prairie” outdoor art extravaganza. Please join us in the courtyard after our final PTA meeting for an evening of incredible student created artwork projected onto the beautiful canvas that is East Prairie School. Here is a digital rendering of what we believe this experience will be like (actually evening forecast subject to change).
Students wanting to display artwork in the show should send their masterpieces to Dr. Schmeisser (email@example.com) by this Friday, May 28th. The exhibit will be open to all families from approximately 8:15-9:30PM. Here is a preview of some already submitted masterpieces.

Thank you Mrs. Smith, Ms. Wydmanski, and Mr. Nissan for hosting an extraordinary BPAC/TPI Spring Fling Picnic. Thank you to our incredible students and families for your unwavering support, involvement, and care. The energy was contagious as our kids, families, and teachers came together in-person for the first time in a long time!
