I apologize for the mix up with Early Act letter stating Tuesdays. We will actually meet on the first and third Thursday of the month. Choir will meet before school on Thursdays.

Reusable Trays
South Prairie will start using Reusable Lunch Trays on Tuesday, September 3. The district’s sustainability committee has worked with food service and district administration to reduce waste.
