Thank you to all the Garrison students who have brought in tabs, and for the community members who have saved for us. Great job. Since there will be no Department convention this is the count for the year. Our Department Children and Youth department goal is 1 million, so let’s get a good jump on that number for next year. All proceeds from the tabs go to the Ronald McDonald house and they really appreciate our efforts.”

Any students in grades 7-12 who want to be on the golf team this year, please send an email to either Mr. Cooper or Miss Palczewski to be added to the golf group on Microsoft Teams. We are going to send activities and exercises for you to work on at home. Then, hopefully we will be able to get on the course and have some tournaments soon!
Update (March 29th): We are excited to start week 2 of Distance Learning! Last week, teachers asked students to connect with them and get started with some basic assignments. We saw great participation from a majority of students and families! Those who haven’t made contact online will be contacted tomorrow to make sure we have all of our students connected! Instructional packets will be sent home tomorrow following the bus routes, but students should NOT send work back. If work needs to be returned, it should be done online or by sending a picture. This is also the last week that students in grades 6-12 will get packets sent home. After this week, all instruction will be done online, with the exception of elementary students who will continue to receive instructional packets each week. Students in grades 6-12 will start completing all of their class work through Microsoft Teams. In order to track attendance and keep all classes information in one location, we have implemented the following schedule for grades 6-12: Monday: Receive instructional materials and look over what is coming up for the week. Tuesday: Periods 1, 3, 5, 7 Wednesday: Periods 2, 4, 6, 8 Thursday: Periods 1, 3, 5, 7 Friday: Periods 2, 4, 6, 8 **Each day that the class period meets, students will check in to each class at any time between 7:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. Teachers will track attendance by making sure students check in to their class (interacting with a post on the class’ Team). For example, if you are in English 5th period, you would check in on Tuesdays and Thursdays at some point between 7:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. in order to be counted present for those days. If you don’t check in, you will be marked absent according to our existing attendance policy. Each teacher will only be assigning a maximum of TWO assignments each week which will be posted on Teams. This should help students organize and plan for the school work they need to complete throughout the week. Please refer to the new “Distance Learning” page on the website to view South Prairie’s Distance Learning Plan which was approved by DPI and other helpful information like more details on the plan for 6-12 and how to use Microsoft Teams.
Daily Update (March 27th): We will continue our Offsite Distance Learning next week. Packets are ready for delivery on Monday. On Sunday evening, we will let you know more specific details on the distance learning plan moving forward! Students should continue to stay in contact with your teachers. All work should be kept at home, please send your teachers pictures, scans, or complete the work online. Parents, we ask that any library or bookmobile books that need to be returned should be placed in a plastic bag and returned to the bus drivers on Monday.
Update (March 26th): We have submitted our Distance Learning Plan, and we are waiting for approval. We will update everyone with more details once we have been approved. We are asking all families to complete a follow-up survey to give us more information for the lunch delivery program and about how the students are doing with making contact with their teachers. To complete the survey, use the following link: https://tinyurl.com/ru6ww2t
Today we delivered all personal belongings from the students’ lockers. If you were not able to receive your locker materials, please contact the school to make sure the bus brings it on the lunch delivery route this week. Students, please make sure you are continuing to do the work that your teachers assigned for the week. For grades 6-12, we are asking students to check in with their teachers according to their teachers’ directions. Teachers have noted that a lot of the high school students and some middle school students still haven’t checked in with their teachers. Please check the Teacher Pages section of the school website if you need a reminder of what you’re supposed to complete this the week for each class. Thank you to everyone for your cooperation with this first week of distance learning at South Prairie!
Daily Update (March 24th): This week, teachers have made contact with students digitally. Students, make sure you get connected with your teachers by following the method that they directed. There is a “Distance Learning” button at the top of the school website that will take you to a page with major updates in South Prairie’s distance learning process along with some helpful links. (Students who need to access Microsoft Teams should view the student help guide on this page) Parents, please understand that our goal is not to have your kids on the computer for an extended period of time. Our teachers have done a great job at assigning work that should be manageable for students and allow them to share devices within your household. Once we have made sure that everyone in our district has devices to use, we can reevaluate those who need an extra device. Tomorrow, we will deliver personal belongings from lockers by following the same drop-off process we did on Monday. Look for another survey to come out at the end of the week in which we will ask for feedback on the distance education process and follow up with more questions about connectivity and lunches.
Update (March 23rd): Thank you to everyone for your cooperation with delivering instructional materials today! Tomorrow, we will attempt to deliver to the few who didn’t receive their packets today. On Wednesday, we will deliver any remaining personal belongings from students’ lockers. We will deliver the personal belongings on the bus routes the same way we delivered instructional packets today. Also, if you still want to be added to the lunch list, please contact the school! Students, please continue to reach out to your teachers through the electronic method that your teachers directed. *Students in grades 6-12, many of your teachers will be using Microsoft Teams. So, please check your Outlook email inbox for an email from Ms. Palczewski on how to download and activate Microsoft Teams on your computers.
Here is a Monday morning message from Mr. Routledge! https://youtu.be/QtqyDNVGZxU Make sure you're ready to receive your instructional packet today and stay tuned for an update this evening!
Students and Parents - Tomorrow will be the 1st day of Offsite Distance Education for South Prairie. Bus drivers and para educators will be delivering packets and textbooks to everyone. Please expect them to arrive 4 hours after your normal pick up time. Everyone that is on a route will have them delivered to your normal pick up spot. The one exception is that all K-Mart and YMCA students will need to meet at the YMCA between 11:30 & 1:30, those of you that are not on a country route and drive daily, expect your packet to be delivered to the YMCA. Our goal this week it to provide educational opportunities to each and every student. For this to happen, our #1 priority this week is to touch base with all students and see that everyone is able to connect though the online methods your child’s teacher will be using. SRT will be providing free internet access to those that do not currently have access. Jen and Nancy will be calling all families that did not respond to our first survey where we asked about internet connections and devices capable of accessing the internet. The USDA is providing Free Lunch, Breakfast, and Snacks to all children 18 and under. Please connect the school on Monday to be put on the list. We will do our best to send lunches tomorrow if you contact the school before 9:30 am. Please look at this week as a learning opportunity for both your children and the teachers. Feedback from you will help in seeing that all of your children are challenged educationally and continue to make progress in this online service. Later this week, teachers will ask for specific feedback and the district will have more broad questions for you as well. Together we will make the best of this situation. I have always lived by the motto: “In every disaster there lies an opportunity.” For the students and staff of South Prairie, the COVID-19 pandemic is giving us the opportunity to broaden our teaching and learning styles and, most importantly, continue to grow as a family. Mr. Stanley, Superintendent
CLARIFICATION: Everyone that is currently on a bus route, open enrolled or not, will have their packets delivered on their bus route. Those that are open-enrolled and normally drive to school will pick up their packets at the YMCA from 11:30 to 1:30.
UPDATE (March 20th): On Monday, March 23rd, we will begin delivering instructional activities through an Offsite Distance Education Model. Materials will be delivered to each household by following the bus routes. The bus will stop four hours after the normal time. Students that are open enrolled will pick up their instructional materials at the YMCA from 11:30 to 1:30. Each student will receive a packet that includes materials from their teachers to work on for the week and a bag with their textbooks. Students will follow directions according to their teacher’s instructions on how to complete the activties. Every teacher will also post materials on their Teacher Page that can be found on the school website. (Go to https://www.south-prairie.k12.nd.us/ — Main Menu—Teacher Pages—Teacher’s Name) Lunches will continue to be delivered each day as they have been. If you would like to sign up for lunches and haven’t already, please call the school. Lunches are available for anyone in the household who is under 18. Thank you to SRT and The National Guard for donating bags and Market Place and Cashwise for donating boxes to help us get materials delivered!
Update (March 19th): Based on Governor Burgum’s proclamation that school will be suspended another 7 days (until April 1st), we will continue to develop our Offsite Distance Education Model. Look for our daily briefings as this plan develops.

Update (March 18th): The South Prairie staff is continuing to prepare our distance education instructional plan. Today was the first day we delivered lunches and it went well. If you want to be added or removed from the lunch list, make sure you call the school.
Update (March 17th): The South Prairie Staff has met today and started developing a plan for instruction if school closures would extend past this week. Tomorrow, we will start delivering lunches to those who requested them by following the bus routes. The lunches will arrive at your stop four hours after your normal bus pickup time. For example, if your child is normally picked up at about 7:15, then you should expect lunches to be delivered at approximately 11:15. The Kmart and YMCA stops will both pick up lunches at the Y from 11:30 to 12:30. If you were not able to fill out the survey or request lunches, please contact the school or fill out the survey that is linked at the bottom of this post. Also, just as another reminder, all practices and competitions have been suspended indefinitely by the NDHSAA. This includes fine arts music festivals and contests, FBLA, FFA, and archery.

The 9th grade class made Shakespearean masks as an artifact in their gang colors for their Romeo and Juliet unit! They are competing against two other groups in their class from the play in several competitions, this being just one. The three gangs are the Capulets (red and yellow), Veronians (neon pink and yellow), and the Montagues (blue and green). Each member created masks and the strongest mask from each gang faces off in a competition judged by dignitaries of South Prairie School. The students learned that the use of masks during Shakespeare’s plays were for purposes of flirtation for the young people, for fashion of the time, and to protect the wealthy from the sun. Some of the masks will be donated to children’s theatre groups or the 2nd Story Social Club for their annual prom!
