Welcome To East Prairie School District

East Prairie School once stood as a small schoolhouse with less than 100 children in the area. We now house over 550 students enrolled in grades preK-8. Academic excellence is achieved with strong emphasis on Language Arts, Math, Science, Social Studies, Music, Art, Foreign Language and our STEM Program.

The final week of the school year is upon us. While this homestretch has certainly been different than the one we envisioned; our goal is to close out the year with spirit and celebration to ensure a sense of community and closure for our students. Today is our final planning day; daily lessons will continue, but with no teacher accessibility. This time has been invaluable for us to collaborate on designing impactful instructional opportunities, as well as, to continue planning for next year.

Family Communication 5/1
05/01/2020
Welcome to May! In addition to being May 1st, it is also May Day and International Workers Day. Check out today’s art and SEL collaboration to see how you can thank a superhero/essential worker. Thank you to Ms. Wade-Kuzwayo and Ms. Doolas for this creative collaboration! Here are some additional ideas for showing your gratitude. This ties in seamlessly with the opportunity shared yesterday about creating messages and artwork for an essential worker safe space at St. Francis Hospital in Evanston. Families looking to contribute to these spaces can create uplifting and inspiring cards, messages, and artwork. Finished products can be mailed to the school or dropped in the Castro family mail slot located at 3839 Howard Street within our neighborhood.
