Prairie Crossing Educational Alliance
What is PCEA?
PCEA is the Prairie Crossing parent association, similar to a PTA or PTO. PCEA is a local self-governing unit whose main purpose is to promote the welfare of children and youth in the home, school and community. The PCEA will strive to enhance the school's mission to help families realize their children's social, creative, and intellectual development.
PCEA is comprised of parents, staff and community members who work together to enrich our students' experiences and to identify the needs of our school. Through fundraising we are able to provide supplemental supplies and resources as well as sponsor social activities. These resources will be directed toward educationally focused goals that address the needs of students, staff, parents, and community.
PCEA is a Chapter of the Douglas County Educational Foundation
How does PCEA Fundraise?
All of the fundraising efforts come through the parents and the students. PCEA coordinates various events and activities.
Annual Fundraising Events
What does PCEA do with the funds raised?
PCEA is committed to giving back at least 80% of all funds donated directly back to the school and the students in the school year they were donated.
A majority of those funds go directly to Teacher Grants, but are also used to sponsor social activities and providing supplemental supplies and resources throughout the year.

How do I find out more information and get involved?
PCEA holds a monthly meeting the first Tuesday of each month at 6:30 pm in the library.
All parents and community members are encouraged to attend.
This is an excellent opportunity to stay up to date on what is happening at the school, in the district and in the community. This is not just about volunteering! Every meeting concludes with the Principals Report and provides valuable time and insight from Principle Carrie Rotherham. Please join us with questions, ideas and concerns.
If you are unable to attend the monthly meeting, feel free to reach out to members of the board at any time.
PCEA is excited to announce we have used donation money collected in the 2016/2017 school year to grant PCE $26,000. The money will be used for:
$15K for an electronic sign outside the school to replace the old marque
$10K to be used toward new playground equipment
$1K to be used toward the purchase of a new laminator
Thank you to everyone who helped us reach this amazing number of funds to help PCEA achieve their goal of enriching our students experience and resources!
