Hello Prairie Queen Families!
“It’s pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and it’s first chapter is New Year’s Day.”
There is opportunity in everything. Our resolutions don’t need to be big. Maybe it’s mastering tying our shoes, trying a new food, getting more sleep – something that enriches us, makes us better versions of ourselves. I’ve found the small things grow into big things, and then we suddenly find ourselves accomplishing so much! And when we resolve to do things together, our opportunities turn into realities.
The theme of my first page in my book Opportunity is “collaboration.” I believe all things are possible if we do it together. Happy New Year.
Pam Lowndes, principal

Enrollment is NOW OPEN for the 2018-19 school year!
We erroneously sent out information in earlier newsletters that Kindergarten enrollment for the 2018-19 school year would open Dec 1st. This got pushed back due to some District system upgrades. It is now open. We have set Prairie Queen’s Kindergarten Round-up for Mar. 8th.
WATCH D.O.G.S. coming to PQ
WHO LET THE DOGS OUT?!?!
WATCH D.O.G.S. is coming to Prairie Queen! Dads, Grandpas, uncles, any father figures – please join us with your students at Prairie Queen Tuesday, Jan. 16th at 6 p.m. for pizza and soda and learn about WATCH D.O.G.S. This is a nationwide program designed to provide positive male role models for students, simply by being present during the school day, demonstrating that education is important!
WATCH D.O.G.S., a K-12 program, invites fathers, grandfathers, uncles, or other father figures to volunteer at least one day, all day, at their student’s school. So, all you dad figures in our Prairie Queen community, please join us January 16th to learn more about WATCH D.O.G.S. at Prairie Queen. Come be a PQ TOP DOG!
Lost and Found “Overfloweth”
If you’re missing items, there’s a good chance it’s in our Lost and Found! Please come take a peek before we clean out for this semester and donate ALL items to a charitable organization. Anything left by Jan. 19th will go.
Medications at school
Cold and flu season has arrived! Please remember the Health Office requires ALL medications, including over the counter cough drops, must be brought to the health office and administered there. Cough drops may not be in the classroom or kept in a student’s backpack as a safety precaution. Also, a Medication Administration Permission form must be filled out and turned into the Health Office when any medication is sent to school. This form can be found on the district web site or you may request one from us. Thank you for helping us keep Prairie Queen a safe environment!
Treats at school
All treats sent into school must be vetted through the front health office for classroom allergies. Please keep all treats in their original packaging or boxes. The original packaging and boxes display labels with possible allergens and food warnings. Without these labels we cannot determine if the food item is safe for an entire class. Thank you for your assistance and help keeping all our students safe at Prairie Queen.
Prairie Queen is “Closed” School
Prairie Queen is considered a “closed” school. If you move out of our attendance area, you may only be allowed to finish the current school year here. Any requests beyond that will not be approved. The district uses this process to help manage school/class sizes as much as possible. Please contact Student Services at 402-537-6214 if you have questions.
Kids Club Consolidation Site
When there is no school or we experience a Snow Day, Prairie Queen Kids Club will be held at Walnut Creek. Walnut Creek Kids Club contact number is 402-898-9633.
