Hello and welcome new Prairie Children Preschool families and welcome back to our returning families!
We are already busy planning the 2014-2015 school year and have a lot of wonderful events planned for our students and their families.
Your involvement and membership in the Prairie Children Preschool PTA is very important. As a member, your family receives free admission to all of the social events and you are given the opportunity to vote at our PTA meetings. Most importantly, you are helping to provide educational and social enrichment opportunities that might not otherwise be possible – opportunities such as Fundraising Drives, Educational Speakers, The Fall Festival, The Sweetheart Dance, The Spring Picnic and the Reflections Program, just to name a few.
As they say, many hands make light work, and I am excited to see both our returning PTA volunteers, and many new ones as well! Research proves that when a parent volunteers, it has a positive effect on their student's success. When parents are involved in their children's education, they achieve more, schools perform better, and even teacher morale improves. Ultimately, school communities are stronger when parents get involved. I’d like to challenge each of you to not only join the PTA, but to find a way to get involved this year. There is a volunteer opportunity for everyone, whether you have a few minutes a month or a few hours a day, we have opportunities for everyone. Let’s make this year a great one!
We would love to have you join the Prairie Children Preschool PTA!

Many of you saw the lovely and delicious items n display at our PTA table, at Open House or our Meet n Greet. The Chip Shoppe is a wonderful company, as they really have something for everyone! This is our biggest fundraiser of the fall, and we sincerely hope everyone can participate and help raise money for our school.
