Prairie Queen Elementary


  • Principal's Corner

    Hello Prairie Queen Families!

    Thank you to everyone who came out to parent teacher conferences. It's such an important opportunity to have that one on one with your child(ren)'s teacher to celebrate successes and set benchmarks!

    And while we wrap up the first quarter, it seems we've wrapped up most of our mild temperatures. Please remember, we'll be outside for recesses and walking club unless it's below ten degrees including windchill. So make sure we're layered up and ready to go when you arrive for drop off, we really appreciate your help with this!

    Have a wonderful week and hope to see you and your families at Trunk or Treat this Friday, Oct 19th from 6:30 to 8 p.m. It's going to be a blast!

    Pam Lowndes

  • MAP Assessments

    Your child took the MAP Assessment in the past two months and you should have received their results during parent teacher conferences.

  • Health Updates

    Allergies, fall colds, and stomachaches have entered the building!  Just a few reminders from the Health Office -- as long as your student isn’t running a fever or vomiting, we will encourage them to remain in school.  Students who run temperatures of 100.00 or higher will be sent home.  They must be fever free for 24 hours without medications before they can return to prevent further infection.  Research has shown that half of students who miss 2-4 days early in the school year  will end up missing nearly a month of school during the year.  Please help us in making this a successful school year!

  • Digital cameras needed!

    If you have old, unused digital cameras laying around the house, Photojournalism Club will gladly take them off your hands!  Photojournalism is a club of 5th and 6th graders photographing  PQ “happenings.”  We edit the photos and include them in our club blog and portions of the yearbook.  The digital cameras would need a USB cord and memory card for the club’s needs.  If you are interested in donating to Photojournalism Club, please contact Mrs. Smith at  Thanks for your consideration!

  • Yearbook – PTO needs your help!

    The Yearbook is a PTO sponsored project headed by Julie Collins, but many helping hands are still needed!  Each teacher needs one parent per class to sign-up and create the classroom collage page.  Also needed are parents to take pictures at music programs and parents signed up as classroom party parents to take pictures at classroom parties.  All pictures are uploaded to the teachers’ TreeRing folder and we can get those instructions to those parents who sign-up to help.  Below is the link to Signup Genius and listings of what opportunities are available to help. More helping hands makes a faster process and a wonderful product!  Julie Collins will be available after the PTO meeting on Sept. 27th to answer any questions you may have.  Hope to see you there and thank you for your consideration!!/showSignUp/60B044AAEA828A2F58-yearbook

  • 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.
