Trunk or Treat Needs Your Help!

Trunk or Treat is next Wed, 10/26, from 6:30-7:30pm at Prairie.


Trunk or Treat is one of Prairie’s favorite nights of the year.  Costumes and candy…always a great combination!

We need your help to make this event a success. Please bring in bags of candy to help fill the trunks for our kids.  The candy can be sent with the kids in their backpacks or the candy can be dropped in the collection bin in the lobby of Prairie.

We also need trunks…sign up below to decorate your car trunk and pass out candy or trinkets.  We will have a contest for the best decorated car as judged by the 6th Grade Prairie Pride committee. The more cars, the more fun!
