Winter break is almost here!
Don’t forget winter break begins at 12:30 pm on Wednesday, December 20. Classes resume January 4.
Enjoy your holidays!
DEADLINE FOR ALL ORDERS IS FRIDAY, DEC 8th.
Show your appreciation this holiday season for those who make Prairie such a wonderful school through the gift of Scrip gift cards! Gift any amount to anyone on Prairie’s amazing staff to say Thank You. Teachers and staff will then be able to choose which gift card they would like to have. Each card will include the names of the participating families. In addition to being convenient, Prairie receives a percentage of the gift card amount at no additional cost for the parent or the teachers/staff!
Purchase gift cards as presents, or for your everyday needs. Prairie earns an average of 8 percent for dining out or 4 percent for home improvement when using Scrip gift cards. Please look here for more specifics on the percentage earned with each individual card.
To order gift cards or contribute to the teachers’ gift, please return the completed order form with a check made payable to PRAIRIE PTA. Or donate to the teacher’s gifts online through your My School Anywhere store. Cards will be sent home prior to winter break in your child’s backpack unless other arrangements have been made.
Thank you for supporting this fundraiser!
