Welcome to Prairie Woods Elementary

  • I would like to welcome all new and returning students and families back to Prairie Woods for the 2022-23 school year.  Our school is committed to   providing a safe, nurturing learning environment to foster the growth of each student. Our dedicated staff work closely together in Professional   Learning Teams to review data, to improve student achievement, and unpack our curriculum standards. Ultimately, we want to provide our students   with a positive, healthy school experience. Prairie Woods prides itself with implementing R.O.A.R. (Respect, Ownership, Attitude, and   Responsibility) throughout our school. Our school has created school-wide expectations for students, which we teach to all students at the   beginning of the year, but continually revisit throughout the school year.  We believe that healthy partnerships with families are crucial to the   success of each child. It is our goal to involve parents as key members of our educational team. Together, there is no limit to what we can   accomplish.

     - Randy Juhl, NLS Elementary Principal
