Matthew Haug

Welcome to the Prairie Knolls Middle School Principal’s Page!

This is my seventh year as the Principal at Prairie Knolls Middle School and what a fantastic journey this has been! As a school, we strive to provide our students with many academic and social experiences to challenge and support them during their transition over the middle school years.

In addition to email updates from the District, our PKMS teachers, and our Monthly Newsletter (the Falcon Flyer), you can learn more about what is currently happening, and what is coming up, by clicking on the links below for my Weekly Principal’s Message:
