Prairie Queen Elementary


  • Principal's Corner

    Hello Prairie Queen Families!

    Congratulations on helping us off to a tremendous first week of school!  As we’ve grown to over 500 students strong, besides building a Kind, Courageous, Compassionate community – my priority and responsibility is ensuring their safety.   I’d like to especially applaud all of our families who are helping us shape safe morning and afternoon routines.  Thank you for:

    • Pulling as far forward as possible in the car line
    • Having the kids ready with jackets and backpacks
    • Having your students exit the car on the side closest to the sidewalk as soon as the car reaches the area marked with lines
    • Stopping your car before the crosswalk
    • Adults staying in the car
    • Using the crosswalk when walking from parked cars
    • Arriving before 8:05
    • Keeping your pets home when walking to drop off and pick up

    I know it sounds simplistic, but it’s these basic things that keep our students safe and get our days started off in the most optimal way.  Here’s to a fantastic school year!

    Pam Lowndes

  • Battle of the Books Returns!

    Battle of the Books will be back for 2018-19! Battle of the Books is an extracurricular activity for kids who like good books!  In Battle of the Books, 4th, 5th and 6th grade students form teams of four, read one book a month for over months, then meet once a month on a Wednesday morning before school to practice our questions and prepare to battle.  In February, we will have a school battle, with the top two teams meeting to battle teams from other district schools.  Students are responsible for forming their own teams, reading five books in their free time, attending meetings, writing practice questions, and returning their books on time.  If your child is interested, more information will be sent home in August.

  • 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.
