8th Grade Final Word & Graduation - Help us say goodbye to our graduating 8th graders on Friday June 2nd from 6:00 - 7:30 at the 1912 Center! The graduating 8th grade class will be conducting a Final Word Presentation. Students craft a narrative of significant personal growth during their time at Palouse Prairie and their readiness to move into the next phase of their education. They will present their final word in front of their families, teachers, and community members during graduation. Individuals that have had an impact on the students’ lives will have a chance to speak about the students’ characters and personal growth.
5th Annual Run the Palouse & Year End BBQ - A reminder that our 5th Annual Run the Palouse will take place on Friday, June 2nd at 4pm. ALL students are welcome to come run but only those who turned in a pledge form with at least $20 raised will receive a t-shirt. Participants have been logging 25 miles of running or equivalent exercise over the last 6 weeks and will run the final 1.2 miles together, gathering at Mountain View Park to run the final 1.2 mile course together and to become marathon finishers! Stick around afterwards for our Year End BBQ of hamburgers, veggie burgers, and potlucked side dishes + desserts. BBQ is free to runners and by donation for everyone else.
Pledges for Run the Palouse are in and total more than $5,200! Our business sponsorships are roughly $2,000 which more than cover the cost of the t-shirts, so we are on target to meet our goal of raising $6k for the Adventure Program! Thank you SO much to those who called and visited businesses!
1st Annual Adventure Equipment Drive - This year, at Run the Palouse, we will have an Adventure Equipment Drive. This is an opportunity for parents to take all those old clothes, boots, gloves, bikes, etc. that their children have outgrown, and donate them to our Adventure Program! We will have a booth set up at Run the Palouse and volunteers to receive your donations. Run the Palouse is less than two weeks away, so declutter those closets soon for a chance to donate to the Adventure Program! Here is a list of items on our wishlist:

Snow jackets Snow pants Shoes Boots

The Science Behind Agriculture - "Every Saturday from June 3rd to August 26th the University of Idaho (UI) College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (CALS) will be at Moscow Farmers Market teaching lessons about the science behind agriculture. Children will receive a science passport during their visit and those that attend at least five events will be entered in a drawing for great prizes. Children will also receive a science kit during their first visit and have the opportunity to earn different pieces each Saturday. Additionally, UI CALS will be hosting Saturday Academy of Sciences that builds on topics presented at the market. These academies will be hosted on campus and give students a more in depth look at science. All of these events are of no cost to students and their families." See attached flyer.
