Please come join us at the event of the year here at Prairie Heights Middle School.  You will find an hour of the best entertainment this side of Brushy Prairie on March 21st at 6:30 PM in the middle school gymnasium.  Physical Education classes from grades 4 through 8 will be showcasing their skills learned throughout the year.  There will be music presented by our very own PH DJ, Mr. Leu, while students show off their skills through a variety of physical activities.  The night will conclude when all grade levels pull together for a final dance routine.  Beginning at 6PM and throughout the evening the Prairie Heights Education Associate will be hosting a pizza sale, plus candies and water.  The money raised through this event goes to a scholarship fund established by the teacher association and is presented to a Prairie Heights graduate.  In the past we have hosted a spaghetti supper, however this year we have chosen to go with slices of pizza at $2, candies, chips, and water at $1.  Students participating in the Extravaganza will be getting a discount slip that when shown at the food tables will allow them a discounted slice of pizza for $1.  Please spread the word and let’s pack the Panther Den to support our staff and students.
