Special Events

At Prairie Vale, there are special events each year specific to each grade level and TONS of activities for ALL students. Read below to find out details about each one…

Grade Specific Activities

  • Kindergarten and New Students- Boo Hoo Brunch in the lobby café. This early morning breakfast is especially for parents who are sad (and some who are not so sad!!!) to see their babies off to school for the first time. Come meet other parents who you will be spending your next 12-13 years with!! This is a great time to make new friends and greet old ones. Meet in the lobby "café" immediately after the students go to class…you may need some carbs, caffeine and simple sugars to help you celebrate or commiserate!
  • Kindergarten-Winter Lunch is held in the gym in December.  Parents and family members are invited to eat a delicious turkey and dressing (or bring their own lunch) with their student.  Students may even sing a song or two!
  • First Grade-Oldies, but Goodies (Grandparent's Day) lunch-This is a day when first graders can invite their grandparents (or parents or special friends) to dine with them in the gym.  A box lunch is provided for our special guests or you are welcome to bring lunch in if you prefer.  students may "rock around the clock" to a ditty to entertain their "oldies".
  • Second Grade-Chicks and Cheerios (Mom's Day) Breakfast-Second graders can invite their mom (or grandmas, aunts or special friends) to have breakfast on this morning.  We all meet in the gym to munch on donuts, muffins and hang out together.  Students may even serenade their special girls with a ditty...sure to bring a tear to any eye!
  • Third Grade-Dudes and Donuts (Dad's Day) Breakfast-Third graders can invite their dad (or grandpa, uncle or special friends) to have breakfast in the gym.  Dudes may even be privy to a camp song or two from their little cowpokes!
  • Fourth Grade-Thanksgiving Lunch-Fourth graders can invite their friends and family to dine with them on delicious turkey and dressing.  Because we are thankful, you might even get a chance to see and hear your student perform!
