When you become a Prairie parent, you also become part of the P.O.P. (Promote/Organize/Provide) Parent Community. Prairie relies on your assistance to make our school a special place. Your time, talents and resources are needed to support each student we are fortunate to serve. Without P.O.P. Parent Community members, many of the events and activities that take place at Prairie would not occur.
P.O.P. Parent Community
Prairie’s parent group has a unique structure. P.O.P. is led by a group of P.O.P. Guides – parents who represent each division of the school. P.O.P. Guides meet bi-monthly to plan upcoming school activities and fundraisers; All-Parent meetings occur in the alternating months.
P.O.P. stands for Promote/Organize/Provide – the three components of our mission. We aim to:
- Promote communication within the Prairie community
- Organize community-building events and initiatives that further integrate parents and families into the school
- Provide direct financial support to the school through fundraising events and projects
