Congratulations to the PCJH Athlete of the Week, Reid Janssen! Reid is a 14-year-old 8th grader from Fairbury, and is the son of Curt and Laura Janssen. Reid was nominated by Mrs. Lackaff, who wrote, "Reid has been a member of the Prairie Central band program since he began band in 5th grade. Reid has an incredible work ethic and sets an example for what it looks like to strive for excellence. Reid plays clarinet in concert band and pep band and, last year, learned to play tenor saxophone for jazz band. In addition to participating in band at PCJH, Reid also auditioned for and was accepted into the ILMEA All-District Concert Band on clarinet and the ILMEA All-District Jazz Band on tenor saxophone. Reid also participated in IGSMA Solo & Ensemble contest in both 7th and 8th grade. This year, his clarinet duet earned the Best of Day Award for the clarinet room, which is a tremendous recognition! Reid is an incredibly talented musician and never becomes complacent - he is always looking for a new challenge and consistently puts the work in to meet his goals. I cannot wait to watch Reid continue to grow and improve as a musician as he moves on to high school! Thank you for all of your contributions to our PCJH band program, Reid! Keep up the great work!"

Congratulations to the PCJH Student of the Week, Jacob Schrader! Jacob is a 12-year-old 7th grader from Chenoa, and is the son of Daniel and Jackie Schrader. Jacob was nominated by Mrs. Sattler, who wrote, "Jacob is a tremendous student and a pleasure to have in the social studies classroom. He consistently demonstrates an enthusiasm for learning, actively engaging with the material and applying it to real-world scenarios. He consistently participates in class discussions, frequently contributing relevant stories that are not only full of personality, but that connect to the content and further understanding for everyone. Furthermore, Jacob exemplifies kindness and respect, both towards his peers and instructors, fostering a positive and inclusive learning environment. Jacob's fantastic attitude brightens the atmosphere of our social studies classroom every day. His diligent work ethic is commendable, as he consistently goes above and beyond in his academics. Notably, Jacob exhibits strong leadership qualities, serving as an exemplary role model for his peers. No doubt, Jacob will succeed here and beyond! Thank you Jacob, for everything you do each and every day!" Jacob is also involved in Band, Baseball, and FFA.
