Welcome to Moran Prairie!
Dear Moran Prairie Families,
Welcome to Moran Prairie Elementary School! Our teachers and staff members look forward to working with you to provide the highest quality education for your children. We will work to make each student’s school experience here at Moran Prairie a positive and productive one. On this website, you will find important information about our school. Our website, along with the parent calendar/handbook and our monthly school newsletter, The Moran Prairie Messenger, can serve as valuable resources when questions about our school, specific school programs or school policies arise. Please keep all three resources handy for use throughout the school year.
Again this year we will have twelve Fridays that are early release days. On these Fridays, students will be released at 1:45 p.m. The purpose of this time is to provide collaborative sessions where educators can focus on the improvement of instructional practice. During collaborative time, staff learn new skills, discuss student work, analyze assessment data and share effective instructional strategies. This time has proven to be very valuable as we continue to work toward meeting the individual needs of each of our young learners.
Finally, I would like to take to the opportunity to invite each of you to become actively involved in our school. One good way to do so would be to serve as a member of our Moran Prairie PTG. Our PTG works throughout the school year to provide a wide range of enrichment activities, educational opportunities and fun events for our students. PTG volunteers also assist with the day-to-day operation of our school, serving as tutors and providing support for classroom teachers. It is with the help of our wonderful parent and community volunteers that we are able to provide the very best education for Moran Prairie students.
I look forward to meeting and working with you as we build upon the excellent tradition at Moran Prairie.
