Principal’s Message


Dear Families,

We are excited to kick off our new school year at Prairie Norton Elementary. We can’t wait

to see familiar faces and meet new students! K-3 students have a staggered start based on

last names - see below. We are having an Open House on August 20th from 4:30 to 5:30.

We encourage parents to visit us at open house and then put your children on the bus for

the start of school to improve traffic, safety, and consistency.

We have many learning goals for your child this year. Partner with us in your child’s

learning by asking about their day and examining their school work daily. Prairie Norton

students are showing great educational gains, and we plan to keep improving so your child

gets the very best education.

I am looking forward to meeting you on August 20th at our Open House.
