Prairie Ridge Announcements
Update Contact Information
The school district utilizes a number of methods to notify parents and guardians.  One of the most immediate ways is by utilizing the Blackboard Connect Parent Notification System.  This system will only work, however, if the contact information given to the school by parents and guardians is accurate, up to date, and complete.  If you have a change in address, e-mail or phone, it is imperative that you call the school and update your information right away.


Healthy Snacks
Parents:  Due to students eating at different times on Wednesday's, we are allowing students to bring a healthy snack to eat during 3rd period (6th graders) and 7th period (7th graders).  These are approved snacks from our food and nutrition department:

Animal Crackers

Pretzels

Crackers

Baked Chips

Granola Bars

Gold Fish

These items are also available for purchase in our cafeteria if students forget their snack.  The items must, however, be purchased during the breakfast shift.  


Prairie Ridge 6/7 Social
It’s almost time for the first 6/7 Prairie Ridge Social of the year! We are excited for the students to get together to celebrate a successful start to our year. The Social will be on Friday, September 5, from 4:00-6:00p.m., in the Prairie Ridge cafeteria and Main Gym. Admission is $7.00. A DJ will be playing music and drawings for prizes will be held during the Social. We will be selling pizza for $2 a slice and students can also purchase water or pop, 50 cents each. 

1:1 Technology for 6th Graders
 The Ankeny Schools Technology Task Force has been working to develop a vision and plan for the use of 21st century technology in our district called 1:1 Technology. One of the action steps that emerged from their work is a plan to deploy Chromebooks to all Ankeny sixth graders. Click here for a copy of the Chromebook Loan Agreement and Google Apps Permission.  Please sign and return the forms to your Literacy teacher or the office.  All forms need to be turned in by Friday, August 22nd.

Chromebooks are essentially laptops that use Google’s Chrome web browser as a vehicle to access Internet-based services. Chromebooks primarily use Google Applications (Apps), in addition to providing access to any available web-based resource or website. Currently our District uses Google Apps for Education, and each student and staff member has the capability of having a district-issued Google account.
