The Prairie du Chien School District, with generous help from the city of Prairie du Chien, Cabela’s Distribution Center and River Town Ironworks, is having 89 banners of its graduating seniors displayed on light poles throughout downtown, on St. Feriole Island and South Main Street.

Cabela’s Distribution Center designed, made and donated all of the banners. River Town Ironworks made the brackets at minimal cost so the banners could be mounted on the poles. City of Prairie du Chien personnel installed the brackets and put the banners up for everyone to see. Banners are on display along Blackhawk Avenue in the downtown area and continue onto St. Feriole Island. Banners also are up along a portion of South Main Street.

A demo banner was placed in front of City Hall to give everyone an idea of what the banners would look like. It was in place for about two weeks before the real banners of Prairie du Chien seniors were put up on May 13.

Each student will receive his or her banner when it is time to take them down.

“It’s an awesome project for our seniors and a great way to see all of the entities working together for the Class of 2020,” said High School Principal Andy Banasik.
