At their Feb. 16 meeting, the North Polk board of education was presented with a ceremonial check from Prairie Meadows by Polk County Supervisor, Bob Brownell. Each year, Prairie Meadows donates money to area school districts. This year, North Polk received $19,856.69, which will help to fund technology and security improvements across the district. In tight economic times, contributions like this are greatly appreciated. Thank you to Prairie Meadows and the Polk County board of supervisors for continuing to support the students of North Polk.
