You don't have to be from Prairie Home to volunteer. People from all over put in time in the food stand, helping with the exhibits, working at Bingo and helping out wherever needed. Be sure to follow the Prairie Home Fair Facebook page for updates.

The annual Senior Recognition honoring seniors and their parents was Friday, January 29 at the Prairie Home vs. Russellville basketball game. Sixteen seniors were recognized between the junior varsity and varsity basketball games: Talon Benne, Madison Bishop, Jerzee Cantrell, Kaelyn Crews, John Fontana, Austin Harrison, Allen Haslag, Dallas Hendren, Blane Petsel, Colton Searles, Shaye Siegel, Ryan Small, Luke Stewart, Ty Stidham, Kelsey Watson, and Maggie Wood. Unfortunately, Jerzee and her parents were unable to attend.

The annual Cheer Clinic for elementary students was held last week after school. The students stayed after school to learn cheers from the Prairie Home cheerleaders. The students got to show off what they learned and their Panther Spirit with a performance after the basketball games on Friday night.

Prairie Home Summer Ball Sign Ups are due back to the school or via email by Wednesday, February 3rd. If your child did not bring home a form, you can download a copy from the Prairie Home Summer Ball Association Facebook page and send it in. It is very important that these get completed and back in by this date so that the board can have time to figure out if there is enough interest for teams and, if not, what the options are for those youth who want to play.
