About Prairie Crossing Elementary

Prairie Crossing opened as a brand new school in October 2006, consolidating Fowler Elementary and Oxford Elementary. Our mascot is the fox and is a symbol of our consolidation. The fox is a prairie animal native to the area as well as a combination of both towns taking the first two letters of each town.

We are the largest of the three BCSC elementary schools in the county and serve students in Kindergarten – 6th grade. 6th grade students have the option of being in band and choir. School sponsored extra-curricular activities include 5th/6th grade girls volleyball, 5th/6th grade boys basketball, 5th/6th grade girls basketball, and 5th/6th cheerleading. Many other activities, while not school sponsored, are available to our students such as Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, KidzArt, Club Scientific, 4H/Purdue Extension Education, Little League, Benton Soccer Association, Softball, and Benton Eels Swim Team.

Within the community we serve we are proud to have a community pool, movie theater, bowling alley, public libraries, and many community events such as Dan Patch Days, Earl Park Fall Festival, Fowler 4th of July Festival and Parade, and a Christmas Stroll including Sacred Heart Christmas Bazaar.

The Prairie Crossing Elementary School staff, working cooperatively with the community, will challenge all students to develop their minds through academic excellence, their hearts through respect for self and others, and their spirits through pride in achievement in order to contribute positively to a diverse and global society.
