Welcome to Prairie View Elementary!



Welcome to Prairie View! I am so glad that you are here to learn with us.

Did you know that all of our students use iPads daily in their learning environment? Technology is integrated into all subject areas including the arts and physical education. iPads are one way that we differentiate instruction and meet the needs of all learners in our school.

Our students are engaged in learning academics AND growing socially. Scholars at Prairie View can participate in Recycling Club, Student Council, Math Bowl Team, Spell Bowl Team, Choir and a variety of sports and physical groups.

We LOVE Bobcat Club! Our after school program includes time for snack, homework help, iPad time, physical activity, and clubs like: Young Astronauts, Lego Architecture, Lego Robotics, Biomedical, IU Health, Technology Club, 4-H Club, Girls On The Run, and time to visit the Mobile Library.

Speaking of LEGO Robotics… LEGO League at Prairie View includes students and coaches working on solving a problem, making presentations, and programming their robot to compete with other elementary schools in our area. We are happy to announce that all three of our Lego Robotics Teams received awards at the First Annual District Lego Robotics Competition.

Our Community Volunteers help us learn and grow. We are very fortunate to have Junior Achievement at Prairie View. Students in grades K-5 participate in JA lessons and activities with local area volunteers. We are proud to have the community work with our school! Our PTO provides financial support and a bridge between home and school. Monthly activities for families provide fun and fellowship. We hope you will join us! In addition, many volunteers call Prairie View home. They support our students academically by tutoring and mentoring (before, during and after school).

WOW – There is something for everyone at Prairie View. Please come visit and learn more about why “Bobcats Are Out of This World”!

NPUSC Early Release Days

September 28th, 2017
Dear Parent(s) and/or Guardian(s),
During the 2017-2018 school year, the New Prairie United School Corporation will be participating in early release days. Our goal with the afternoon early release days is to be able to provide our teaching staff with professional development opportunities to better support our students within the educational setting. Many schools in our area and throughout the state participate in a similar concept and NPUSC is excited to provide this professional development model during the school year. The Indiana Department of Education allows each school a specific amount of instructional minutes that may be allocated for early release times and this varies between secondary and elementary schools. Below is additional information regarding these early release days.
What days will the students be dismissed early in the afternoon?
Monday, October 9th
Tuesday, November 7th
Wednesday, December 6th
Thursday, January 18th
Friday, February 16th
What time will each school release students during these specific days?
Olive Elementary             1:05 pm
NP Middle School           1:23 pm
NP High School                1:35 pm
Prairie View Elem.           2:25 pm
Rolling Prairie Elem.        2:25 pm
Will transportation be impacted on early release days?
Yes, the buses will be taking students home at the early release times and afternoon drop off times will be adjusted. If you transportation details regarding the specific afternoon drop off time on the early release days. You may also contact Bruce Lasley at the transportation department at (574) 654-7373 if you have any additional questions.
Will the after school 21st Century Club still be operating on early release days?
Yes, the 21st Century after school program (Bobcat Club, Bulldog Club, Tiger Time, and the MS after school club) will be operating for K-8th grade students but will begin at the earlier release time at each school. The end time and drop off location time for each one of these clubs will remain the same. There will still be a snack given to each student and we will provide a couple of additional breaks to accommodate the longer amount of time the students are there. If you would prefer for your child not to attend club that day, please let your building site coordinator know.
Will there still be the YMCA Latchkey Program on early release days?
Yes, the Latchkey Program will still operate as usual on the early release days. However, the afternoon times will be adjusted to drop students off at Rolling Prairie at the early release times listed above. The end time of the program will remain the same. If you have any questions regarding the Latchkey Program on those days, please contact Sandy Stefanko (219) 325-9622 and she will be able to answer any additional questions.
Will other after school activities still take place on the early release days?
Yes, all after school activities such as band, academic clubs, sports, etc. will still take place sometime in the evening or after school. You may contact your student’s coach or sponsor for additional questions, details, and adjusted schedule.
What if there is a 2 hour delay on an Early Release Day?
In order to count the instructional day on the school calendar, NPUSC can only use an early release OR a two hour delay. NPUSC cannot combine both of these on the same instructional day. If a two-hour delay should occur on an early release day, then NPUSC will have to cancel the early release and normal dismissal times would occur. NPUSC will notify parents of this change through phone, text, and email if this should transpire.
*If you have any questions regarding these early release days, you may contact your building principal or Dr. Carrie Cannon, Assistant Superintendent at (574) 654-7273.
