Welcome to Fifth Grade!!

August 2017

      Hello fifth grade students and parents!  My name is Lorie Prouty, and I am pleased to be working with fifth grade students this year. This will be my tenth year teaching at Van Meter.  I previously taught in the Des Moines Public Schools for eleven years and worked with Iowa State student teachers for two years.  I am a graduate of Van Meter High School and the University of Iowa.  This explains my loyalty to the Bulldogs and also my obsession with black and gold!  My husband and I have three children; our daughter attends school here in Van Meter, our middle son attends DMACC, and our oldest son is starting dental school at the University of Iowa. Go Hawks!!  We live on a farm outside of Van Meter and love spending time with people in this community.

    This year, I am excited to be joining the elementary staff again!  I have previously been serving as the Middle School Instructional Strategist. I can't wait to get back in the classroom. Fifth grade is one of my favorite grades! Ms. Katie Seivert, Ms. Megan Algreen, and I (the fifth grade team) are eager to meet the students and parents.  

     See you all soon!  If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact me at: or 996-2221
