Can you believe the beautiful weather we are having? It’s great for all the little calves to have the nice warm sunshine. Good time to get out in the yard and start getting things shaped up.

Two Cottonwood area students earned their way to the Inland Northwest Invitational Spelling Bee held at LCSC in Lewiston. They were Taylor Riener from Prairie Elementary and David Wassmuth from Summit Academy. They both did very well but did not win the competition. We are proud of both of you.

Kellie Heitman had her first ever state win in three state appearances when she won twice by a pin at the state wrestling meet. Prairie coaches believe she is the first female from our district to win two matches at state. Way to go, Kellie!

Congratulations to the Prairie boys basketball team and their three wins at the state tournament. The Pirates defeated the Lapwai Wildcats in the championship game and are Idaho’s 2015 1A Division 1 state champions.

Although Summit Academy walked away from the boys state basketball tournament without a win, they did not walk away empty-handed. The Patriots won the 2015 1A Division 2 sportsmanship trophy.
