Welcome to a new year at Prairie Crossing!  We are all so excited to have the students' energy and laughter fill the halls again!  Dr. Malouff and I have been working hard to make sure everything is perfect for the students to return to classes.  As you know we have a new administrative team this year including myself as principal and Dr. Jennifer Malouff as Assistant Principal.  We would also like to welcome a few new staff members to our PCE family! 
  • Mrs. Kimberly Bennett joins our 5th grade team this year.  She most recently taught as a 4th grade teacher and interventionist at Sage Canyon Elementary in Castle Rock. 
  • Mrs. Mandie McQueen joins the 1st grade team this year.  Most recently she worked as an EA right here at PCE!  Don't recognize the name??  That is because Mrs. McQueen is a newlywed!! She celebrated her wedding this summer and changed from Mandie Fahrenbruch to Mandi McQueen!  Welcome back, Mrs. McQueen!
  • Mr. Brett St. Germain joins our specials team as our new art teacher!  Brett recently graduated from Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design.  This is his first of teaching.  He has many great ideas to engage students!  We are excited to have him join our staff.
  • Mrs. Jennifer Kendall will be our new librarian!  She is very excited to start the year and make the library a "hub of learning for students".
  • Ms. Kimberly Bowen will support our classroom teachers as one of our newest EAs. 
  • Mrs. Brenda Holmstedt will join us as an EA support for our 5/6 combo class.

  • Mrs. Fran Fuller is returning this year to continue supporting our Special Education Department!

    Our entire staff has been preparing this week for the students' return!  We have made a few changes to some of our routines.  Please note that we will now only have two doors open in the morning when students arrive.  We will have our main entrance doors and the northwest doors (between the green and blue pods) near the bus loop open and supervised by staff every morning.  We are making this slight change to increase safety and security for our students.  Thank you in advance for your help in this change!
Remember to come out to our FroYo social on Monday night! Dr. Malouff and I  are looking forward to meeting everyone!
