Dear School Families:
This has been a very exciting week at Prairie Point. On Monday, we welcomed our new assistant principal, Mrs. Noelle Fahey. Mrs. Fahey comes to us from the Yorkville School District where she previously served as a 5th grade teacher. During her time in Yorkville, Mrs. Fahey served on the Curriculum Coordinating Council, the Student Handbook Committee, the LEAD Committee as well as having served on various curriculum selection committees. This week, Mrs. Fahey has been making her way around the building and getting into classrooms. She has had the opportunity to meet many of our students and will continue to get to know our community. If you have the opportunity to see Mrs. Fahey around the building or out at drop off or pick up, please take a minute to introduce yourself and welcome her to our great community.
It is hard to believe that we have turned the calendar to December and the first half of the school year is nearly behind us. As we move into this season of giving, I have noticed the many ways that our school and our students support the community. With activities such as making cards for veterans, participating in the district food drive, donating toys to the Kendall County Food Pantry, and collecting hats and mittens for the Oswego Optimist Club our students are engaging in service learning projects that are not only giving back to the community but also providing them with valuable experiences.
We do have a few service projects that are still going on, such as the toy drive and the hat and mitten drive. In addition we are still looking for volunteers to support the Holiday Shop Book Fair on Friday, December 15th from 5pm – 8pm.
