A Note from the Principal
Welcome to Prairie Lane Elementary School and thank you for visiting our website. On it, you will find the most up to date events and happenings for our school.
We know that your child’s school success is amplified when there is a mutually supportive effort between family and school. You are always welcomed and encouraged to be involved at Prairie Lane, and we have many opportunities available for parents to stay connected. Just ask.
The vision of Prairie Lane Elementary School is “Providing Wings to Soar.” We feel strongly that we must provide the knowledge and tools students need to fully participate in our global society. In order to accomplish that, Prairie Lane staff work toward the implementation of the following school-wide goals:
- We will implement Professional Learning Communities.
- We will personalize learning for each student through quality instruction, intervention and enrichment.
- We will build positive relationships with and among students, families and the extended community.
We feel strongly that our chosen path will meet the individual needs of all students who attend Prairie Lane Elementary School.
Again, welcome to our school and we look forward to seeing you soon.
