Our Prairie PRIDE Patrol Award goes to Mrs. Pifer! 👏🏻👏🏻
Mrs. Pifer is always happy to welcome each class into the library, read them a story, and help them choose a book to borrow and read on their own.

Although, this is characteristic of many librarians, Mrs. Pifer does not stop there. No matter the day, time, or place, she can always be found helping somebody, student or staff with many different kinds of needs.

In the office, directing parent nights, at board meetings, starting up NWEA, raising a piglet, cooking staff breakfasts, providing candies to snack on, and I know there is more...just being available where needed as a friend and a colleague is always appreciated.
Thank you for all you do for us!
