Essential Skills

The Prairie Elementary team has developed a list of essential skills and concepts that students need to be successful as they move through our system. We are committed to ensuring that each student attains these important benchmarks. These skills are continually assessed throughout the school year. Teachers use the data from these assessments to adjust instruction, regroup students, and implement specific interventions. Our goal is that every student at each grade level will be able to demonstrate an understanding of these essential skills and concepts.

We invite parents to take some time to review the essential skills and concepts for each grade level. Your knowledge and understanding of these benchmarks may assist you in becoming even more involved in your child’s education. Together we will help every child be successful.
