It is with excitement that I welcome you to a new school year at East Prairie. I am anticipating a successful and rewarding year. It continues to be an honor and a privilege to serve as the principal of such an exemplary community of learners.

Fortunately, our school continues to be a team of exceptionally talented and committed staff that has helped produce so many outstanding students. All teachers and staff will work hard to continue the legacy of success established at East Prairie and the district of Tuscola #301.

As you know, the middle school years are such a critical time in the development of students.  I look forward to working with each of you to make this school year a success. One of our primary goals is to create an atmosphere where students develop a positive sense of self; strive to achieve their fullest potential and become responsible individuals through a variety of opportunities in a safe, supportive, collaborative culture.

We, the East Prairie staff, are glad to have you with us this year, and we want to assure you that we will do our best to help your child experience success academically, socially, and emotionally. With your help and cooperation, this should be an excellent school year.


Your partner in education,


Mrs. Carol Munson, Principal
