Scrip Gift Cards: Year-Round Gifts and End-of-the-School-Year Teacher Appreciation Gifts

Order for Your Family and Friends!

Scrip gift cards make the perfect gift! Order as many gift cards as you like for family and friends for any gift-giving occasion, such as graduations, anniversaries and summer birthdays. Just fill out the Scrip family order form and turn it in with your payment.

The deadline for Scrip family order forms is Friday, May 9.

Teachers and Staff Loves Gift Cards, Too!

This is also a perfect way to let your child’s teachers and Prairie’s staff know how much you appreciate all they have done this year. So, along with giving to your family and friends, please remember our teachers and staff members.

Complete the teacher and staff appreciation gifts order form with the amount you would like to give and return it with your payment. Teachers and staff will be able to choose which gift cards they would like.

Each staff person will receive a list of the names of the participating families. What an easy way to show appreciation for those that make Prairie such a wonderful school for our children!

So that Prairie staff will have time to choose their gift cards, the deadline for teacher and staff appreciation gifts form is Wednesday, May 7.

Please note that the fifth graders receive a small percentage back on each gift card purchased, which in turn goes towards fundraising for their Wildwood trip.


If you have any questions, please contact Karen Fernandez at 913-244-2969 or

Play Golf and Help Raise Money for Prairie – A Win, Win!

GolfPrairie Elementary relies on the Annual Golf Tournament as a major fundraiser for our school each spring. We have historically been “best in class” with regards to money raised and active participation in the event.  Unfortunately, as it stands today, we are last out of the nine participating schools in players signed up and sponsors committed. We trust that Prairie is simply a little slow coming out of winter hibernation, and we expect to see a HUGE push these last four weeks prior to the event. Please reach out to us directly at (913.209.7265) (913.375.8466) with any questions.

Golfers – We have 18 open spots for play. Foursomes are encouraged, but individuals are welcome.  $140 per or $560 for the team. Lots of benefits, lots of fun, great course, great food, a chance to win $$$ for Prairie, etc… We can provide additional details to interested parties. Or, ask a previous participant, their reference should be enough.

Sponsors – We are asking for $500 per dedicated hole sign. There will be 10-15 major sponsors from each of these schools:

  • Belinder
  • Highlands
  • Westwood View
  • Kansas City Christian
  • Trailwood
  • Corinth
  • Briarwood
  • Brookwood

Lexus usually steps up and sponsors the hole in one contest. Waterway Car Wash and Titleist have been gold sponsors over the years also. With your sponsorship, I will display a logo of your choice (8.5 x 11) on a sign to be placed in a prominent location on a tee box.  Signs will remain up each day of the event to be hosted at Milburn Country Club, on April 14th, 28th and May 5th. Needless to say, many people are excited at the advertisement potential associated with reaching men and women that reside within Leawood, Mission Hills, Mission Woods, Westwood Hills, Reinhardt Estates, Town & Country, PV, Fairway, etc. Of course you may also donate anonymously if that is your choice or simply donate on behalf of your family rather than your firm.

Thank you to the following sponsors on-board at this point:

  • Elite Sports Medicine
  • Taylor-Made Team
  • Palmer Electric Company
  • MO Bank
  • H&R Block Bank
  • Carroll Seating

We look forward to all the momentum that lies ahead. We can only go up.

Warmest regards,

Jamie Dailey (Golf Chair)  and Brian Tuttle (Chair Elect)

Pre-ordering Open for Prairie Plant Sale

plant-sale-logoLast week your child should have brought home the 4th annual plant sale order form along with postcards to get the word out to your neighbors, friends and family.

Here is the 2014 plant sale order form and the plant sale flier giving you all of the details and deadlines. We encourage you to order online at if at all possible, otherwise you can turn in your forms with payment to your child’s teacher by April 15.

Be sure to check out this year’s Garden Packages – Salsa Lover, Tuscan Herb, and Veggie Garden Starter. And we’ve eliminated the guesswork by listing all plants as “shade,” “partial shade,” or “sun” types. All proceeds directly benefit student activities at Prairie, including the annual 6th grade Wildwood trip.

Please feel free to reach out to one of the chairs if you have any questions at all!

Thanks for your help!

Lindsay Ridder & Stephanie Ptacek
Prairie Plant Sale Co-Chairs
