Welcome back !
I am not sure if the kids are as ready to comeback or parents are just ready for the kids to get back into a routine :-)
This will be my 16th year in District 126 and 11 th year as Principal at Prairie. I started my career at Hazelgreen, as well as my 3 three children, who all attended Hazelgreen and graduated from Prairie. I have seen many changes in education over the years, but one thing remains the same - children need to be in a safe and caring place in order to learn. Being in school everyday and being involved is directly linked to students’ success . We will work together( school, family, community) to ensure that all children are successful at Prairie.
It is our goal to view children as individuals and to be sure they are educated accordingly.
Of course the year will be filled with academics, friendly competitions, activities, sports, clubs, and lots of fun and friendships !
