Prairie Crossing Educational Alliance

PCEA is the Prairie Crossing parent association, similar to a PTA or PTO.  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
