Hello Prairie Queen Families!
Short and sweet this week, appropriate I think since it’s been such a busy time up here on the Prairie! I want to thank all of the families who joined us for Parent Conferences last week, your involvement and feedback in your children’s learning journey is so important and welcome. Report cards will be open online for parents Oct. 23rd.
Thank you to everyone who joined us Oct. 15th for our first Fall Clean-Up! Besides cleaning up our grounds, the playground received paint touch ups, it looks so vibrant again! A big shout out to Jeremy Lieby who led this effort and helped us make our Prairie Queen home a more pleasant place to spend our days.
Have a great week, enjoy the warm summer like weather and we hope to see you all at our first Trunk or Treat October 26th. It looks to be a fun filled night for our Prairie Queen community!

StuCo Tri-City Food Pantry Spare Change Drive
Next week Student Council is sponsoring a "Spare Change" Drive for the Tri-City Food Pantry. Many in our community don't realize we have a Food Pantry right here in Papillion serving families in our district that are struggling. Monies raised will help the Pantry purchase much needed food supplies and toiletries.
Monday is PENNIES, Tuesday is NICKELS, Wednesday is DIMES, Thursday is QUARTERS and Friday is ANYTHING GOES. Top three classes collecting the most change will win some fun prizes from Student Council. So we hope you'll dig out all those coins stuck in the crevices of your couches and car cushions and help us make positive "CHANGE" in our community one coin at a time!
Red Ribbon Week
Oct 23-27 is Red Ribbon Week. We'll be dressing in different themes each day to help promote a Drug Free community. Here is the schedule:
Monday -- Rally in Red Against Drugs! Wear Red!
Tuesday -- Too Bright for Drugs! Wear Neon & Sunglasses!
Wednesday -- Don't get Tied Down with Drugs! Wear your Tie Dye Apparel!
Thursday -- Team Up Against Drugs! Wear your Favorite Sports Team Apparel!
Friday -- PQ is Drug Free, Let's Sock it to Drugs! Wear PQ spirit wear & crazy socks!
Cold weather means morning prep!
The chill is certainly in the air and we need your help in the morning during drop off, morning walking club and outdoor recess. Walking Club and outdoor recess will remain outside unless it is 10 degrees above zero with the wind chill, so please ensure your children are dressed for the cold weather. Have those hats, gloves and mittens on when you get to school!
Trunk or Treat Oct. 26th
Come enjoy a safe and fun school event for the whole family Oct. 26th 6:30 – 8 p.m. in the Prairie Queen front parking lot. Parents and businesses can reserve a trunk spot, there are some left! Reserve your spot before Oct. 20th at http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0a49a9af28a2ff2-pqtrunk . Parents, please consider donating one bag of candy per student and send in to your teacher any time before Oct. 26th. The class that donates the most candy wins a classroom prize! Food will be available for purchase the night of the event and costumes are encouraged. Hope to see you there!
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.
Federal Impact Aid Forms
Federal Impact Aid Forms will be handed out for your signature at Parent Teacher Conferences Oct 10th and Oct 12th. You will need to fill out a Federal Impact Aid Survey for each child that you have attending a school in the Papillion La Vista Community School District; in compliance with Public Law 874 which provides federal funds to school districts educating verified students of federally-affected families as of September 8, 2017. When you complete the form, you are verifying that your student was enrolled in the Papillion La Vista Community School District on this date. We appreciate your help with this!
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.
