Village People is this Friday!

Village People is
April 20
Come shop in The Village on the morning of April 20, and support our 6th Graders.
Sixth graders will be working at various shops in The Village. This program gives kids the chance to gain some real world work experience and understand how different businesses run. They will be working at registers, helping stock groceries and serving frozen yogurt-just to name a few jobs.
The shops may be running some promotions to celebrate the event! Make sure to mention that you are from Prairie and that you appreciate their support!
