A Message To Our Families
06/01/2020
Over this past year, it has become abundantly clear that the people, relationships and an unwavering focus on children make East Prairie the incredibly special and unique community it is. The diversity of our community is our most remarkable strength. Each day, our East Prairie community learns from, with, and alongside one another, which we view as an incredible gift - and one that benefits both children and adults.

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.

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.
