Dear Prairie-Hills Junior High Parents and Guardians:

It is my pleasure to welcome you and your child back for another great year at PHJH.  We are all excited to have our students back in our classrooms and hallways filling them with energy and enthusiasm for learning.  It is our mission to help every student feel welcomed, connected, and part of the PHJH family.  Additionally, we strive to challenge each student to grow in his or her academic abilities and to be college and career ready.  At Prairie-Hills Junior High, we have great teachers who spend hours planning and creating classroom activities to engage our students in learning.  Our teachers utilize research-based best practices and analyze academic data to determine current skill levels and to set goals for growth and improvement. 

 As a reminder our first day of student attendance is Wednesday, August 19, 2015.  Please help us to ensure your child reaches his or her full academic potential by sending your child to school every day on time!  The student day is from 7:50 a.m.-2:40 p.m. 

 I am honored to serve in my second year as principal of Prairie-Hills Junior High School.  It is truly a privilege to be part of a community where parents, teachers, and students care for each other and strive to build positive relationships that support academic and social growth.  As always, please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns at (708) 210-2860 or


Kenndell L. Smith, Principal
