Welcome Back
Welcome Back

Welcome Back to Prairie River Junior High.   The staff are very excited to see everyone again and to meet our new students and help them to be successful here at PRJH.


We have made a few changes here.  Our first change is staffing: we welcome Mr. Kienan Wilson our new VP, Mr. Jordan Taylor, Mr. Michael Gouge and Mr. Brad Corless to our teaching staff.  

The second big change is the timetable.  There are now 6 periods in a 5 day rotation.  This has shortened class times by 10 minutes and has allowed us to offer all four core subjects everyday.  There will be team teaching in some subjects. Some students will have the opportunity to work in smaller groups with a teacher to reinforce a concept or to challenge a group with a higher thinking activity.  Lunch is an hour long. This leaves students with plenty of time to get their lunch and go back to school on time. If students are continually late, then their lunch privilege of leaving property will be revoked.  Options will be offered during period 6 for students. We have added topics such as cosmetology, criminology, greek mythology and many more to our list so students have a wide variety of subjects to take.


I would like to remind everyone that smoking is not permitted in the building or on school property.  That includes vapes and e-cigarettes in any form. Any student who is under the influence of a substance will be removed from class and dealt with according to the policy.  Any student found in possession of an illegal substance will be removed from class and dealt with according to the policy. Hats will not be worn in class, in the office or in the library.  No cell phones are to be used during class time. Our school has devices for students to use in class. Hoodies will come down as students enter the building. No student shall bring a weapon to school.  


It will be a busy school year again.  Please keep up to date by joining our facebook group or making sure we have your email and right contact information so we can keep you up to date.
