The 12 Days of Christmas. It's not just a timeless holiday tune; it's a time-honored tradition at Prairie, every year on the last day of school before Winter Break. You know the drill: Each class chimes in, adding the verse that corresponds to their grade level (i.e. Grade 1 sings about "the first day of Christmas / my true love gave to me..." and so on, through Grade 12), culminating in a campus-wide chorus celebrating in a spirit of togetherness.
Unfortunately, things look a bit different this year on campus, as in many places, and students will celebrate together in new, creative ways. And we will, too — but we want to keep the streak going one way or another.
So, in the coming weeks, we'll be sharing 12 different stories about the people and places who have helped define Prairie over the past 55 years. We're calling it the "12 Days of Giving."
We encourage you to share the stories you remember (or the new ones you'd never heard before!) We also invite you to celebrate your relationship with Prairie by making a contribution in support of the school that helped create those memories. This year more than any other, your philanthropy is critical in helping us create, collaborate, and celebrate with one another during the pandemic, and for many more years to come.
