Committee Descriptions

COMMITTEES: 

Panther Fitness Challenge:  This is our annual school fundraiser, held at the beginning of the school year, to fund all Home and School activities and, most importantly teacher grants.  Students gather monetary donations and we celebrate our success with a fun day of fitness, music and tons of school spirit.

Spirit wear:   This quality sportswear is promoted in the fall and offers a wide variety of clothing for each season so the kids can enjoy them all year round.  This committee also runs the grade level t-shirt design contest and organizes and sells the grade level t-shirts each year.  

Holiday Shop:   Holly Jolly Volunteers will help students shop, purchase and wrap gifts for their friends and family.  Volunteers are also needed for set up, clean up, pictures with Frosty, and passing out complimentary cookies and hot cocoa.

Art To Remember:  Coordinate the purchase of student artwork (that is completed during Art class with Mrs. Collins) that is transformed into memories like coffee mugs, magnets & t-shirts. Profits benefit the art department.

Fun Fair:  Help Organize and run this February Friday night event.  It is a great opportunity for family members to escape cabin fever and enjoy some fun, food and frolics!

Variety Show:  This committee will help with decorations, check in and any assistance needed during the show. This is a perfect opportunity for those who have kiddos performing in the show this year!  

Field Day:  A fun day of games and excitement for our students, including water balloons!

5th Grade Send-Off:  The name says it all!! Organize an event to “send off” and say “farewell” to all of our 5th graders.  The event is usually held in the evening, off campus near the end of school.  

Appreciation:  This committee does something extra special each month for our fabulous Prairie Point Staff to show them how much we truly appreciate them!  Whether it is supplying baked goods, part of a meal or making crafty stuff.  We appreciate any/all help in and out of school!

Beautification:  Help keep our school green and beautiful.  Beautify with decorations, school clean ups/plantings.

Box Tops for Education:  Clip, cut & trim to earn cash for school. This is the perfect opportunity for those who want to volunteer but cannot get to school to help!  This is done from the comfort of your home!

Community Outreach:  This committee focuses on helping in the community and school, including the annual district Kendall County Food Drive in the Fall.

Family Fun Nights:  This committee plans multiple fun filled family evenings at various locations in the area and at school.  (Bingo Night, Gym or Skate Night and more new and exciting events TBA

Father’s Forum:  This is exclusively for our Panther Dads.  This committee plans Donuts with Dad, Muffins with Mom, Daddy Daughter Dance and Father/Son picnic.   

Health and Wellness:  Help set up and run 3 themed and organized “open gym” nights a year.  It is a great way for families to come together, with other families and have fun.  

PAWSS-Parents Assisting our Wonderful Staff and Students: Weekly volunteers help at school to sort and stuff Thursday Folders (where almost all Home and School/district/school information/flyers will be sent home in)

Rewards Committee: This committee will search for programs that reward our students for their hard work through-out the school year.  Your student can earn FREE or discounted park passes, tickets to sporting events, and more (i.e. Raging Waves, Wolves tickets and Great America).

Room Parents:  This committee is to provide students with a great party experience at Halloween, Holiday and Valentines by having wonderful parent volunteer their time prepping and executing the party.

Tuesday Night Dinners:  Parents have a night off from cooking while we earn money for school.  The restaurants offer a generous percentage back to the school for their sales. Volunteers advertise these dinners through student’s Thursday folders, marquee, newsletter, etc.
