It’s time for LAP-A-THON our most important fundraiser of the year. This year we are using PledgeStar online fundraising to make online payments easier and to allow you the option to request pledges from family and friends. It’s easy and schools who use it typically raise twice as much as those who don’t!
Help us reach our fundraising goal of $15,000 by donating at: http://pledgestar.com/prairie

Join us at Prairie Ridge Elementary on October 14th as we take a virtual trip to the Topeka Zoo. After the virtual trip you will get a chance to build your very own mascot! Students will also make a craft and get their photo taken with their cougar.
If you are unable to join us on October 14th, you can still purchase a kit and stuff your cougar at home. Last day to order is September 20th! Cougars are pre sale only. You will not be able to buy the night of the event. https://tinyurl.com/yd6d38vw
