Seniors who will be featured in the upcoming senior edition of the newspaper answered this question:

“What is one thing you would suggest to make PR a better place?”

“I think that advertising for clubs more would make PR a better place. People don’t know about certain clubs because they are not shown throughout the school for people to see and get involved in.” – Andie Kunz, senior

“My experience at Prairie Ridge was great. Changes that would improve the already excellent school would be vegetarian and vegan cafeteria options, and library food privileges (for those who are responsible and respectful).” – Brandon Sjodin, senior

“The biggest problem I often see at PR is various students, friends and otherwise, stressing out far too much about things that ultimately won’t hurt them. For example, to the student reading this, freaking out over whatever standardized test you’re signed up for next year- Everything is going to be OK. Remember that you are loved, you are smart, and despite what ‘the system’ thinks about you, you are so much more than a number. Don’t ever let anyone label you as one. PR will be a better place when we all figure out there are some things we’re good at, and some things we aren’t, but we all have something we love. So find that passion, pursue it, and don’t let anyone hold you back!” – Reilly Branson, senior

“Try new things without being afraid of failure. There are so many adventures out there to embark on, so many people to meet, and so many goals that seem so far out of reach, but you just need to take the first step towards them. Try something new, and if you don’t like it, at least you tried. Talk to someone new, and if there’s no connection between you, at least you have a new acquaintance. Try your best in school because even if you fail, what’s important is that you tried, and that alone improves both you and your community.” Josh Svehla, senior

“No Cleveland sports teams flags or posters should be allowed on the walls. They’re only promoting failure and negativity to students when they should be focused on doing well and getting good grades. Sorry, Mr. Powell.”  Ben Widger, senior
