Support Team FrereBear!

Twenty years ago, The Prairie School's Golf Classic & Dinner was founded by a group of supporters who knew first-hand the power of a Prairie education.  Now, at the end of its second decade, this event raises almost $100,000 annually in support of scholarships and financial aid, thereby ensuring that the opportunity to attend TPS is widely available to families throughout our community.

"To all of those who supported me last year, thank you! I hope you will again support our mission to raise money to give deserving students a chance to be a part of our amazing school. FOUR!"

Prairie is important to me because...

I have developed an amazing extended family of alumni and students that I have taught over the years. There is not greater moment in life than to see young people spread their wings and fly. Prairie provides me the opportunity to grow as a professional and to follow my passion for education.

I support need-based financial aid because....

The Prairie School is a community blessing. While not everyone is able to afford to pay tuition, there are young people that can benefit from this institution. Young men and women can make a difference in our culture and are the leaders for tomorrow... Let's help secure the future through need based financial aid.
