Thank you for visiting the East Prairie Middle School webpage. As the principal of East Prairie, I want to extend a very warm and heartfelt welcome to our school. I feel privileged to have the opportunity to work with the highly qualified and dedicated staff, the wonderful students, and the supportive parents.
As demands and complexities of teaching children increase, it becomes more evident that we all need to work together to insure that our students reach their full potential. We believe that it is everyone’s responsibility to empower students with the creative, intellectual, and decision-making skills necessary for them to become academically, socially, physically, and emotionally successful and responsible. Our staff is committed to working with students and their families as a team.
East Prairie has an incredible academic tradition that is built on a student centered environment and a comprehensive, rigorous curriculum that is directly aligned to the Common Core Standards and the Illinois State Standards. With active parent and community participation, we work to make each day a positive learning experience for your middle school student. As the instructional leader of this school I am responsible for all decisions made in the best interest of your children.
We welcome all of our families back to another exciting, challenging year. To those students and parents who are new to East Prairie we extend and especially warm welcome and best wishes for an exciting and productive year in your new school. We hope that you will quickly feel at home and become involved in the activities of our school. I look forward to a great year!
Your partner in education,
Mrs. Carol Munson, Principal
