    August 2019

    Greetings Prairie Hills Junior High Families,  

    I am so excited about the upcoming school year.  As I enter into my sixth year as Principal of Prairie Hills Junior High School, I will remain steadfast in my mission to provide students rigorous and engaging academic instruction while also focusing on developing each individual student’s social and emotional skills.  

    Our caring and committed PHJH staff is busy preparing classrooms and lessons to ensure your child receive a nurturing learning environment and quality education daily!  Your child’s advisory/homeroom teacher will be contacting you during the 1st week of school to introduce themselves and welcome you to the 2019-2020 school year.

    We eagerly look forward to continuing a productive partnership with you.  Effective collaboration, communication, and commitment between the school and home will lead to outstanding academic achievement for our children. 

     Again, I want to express my honor to serve as Principal of Prairie Hills Junior High School as we begin another successful school year.  I am deeply committed to our school and community of Prairie Hills Elementary School District 144.


    Kenndell L. Smith, Principal
