Pennies for Patients

Did you know? Every 3 minutes someone is diagnosed with a blood cancer and every 9 minutes someone dies. That means in one 7 hour school day, 140 people will be diagnosed with a blood cancer and 42 people will lose their battle.

 

Pioneer K-8 is joining the fight and collecting money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society so they can fund research and care for patients. Help Pioneer K-8 reach our goal of $2,017 by February 28th!

 

Turn in your loose change or dollar bills to your child's classroom teacher and help them earn a prize.

--> A bronze pennant will be awarded to all classrooms that raise $100-$199.

--> A silver pennant will be awarded to all classrooms that raise $200-$299.

--> A gold pennant will be awarded to all classrooms that raise $300 or more.

--> The classroom that raises the most money will be awarded a celebration party. Last year's winner (Geer - 7th) won a pizza party.

 

You can also donate online. Click on the photo below (a link is also below also). Teachers and students may create a page you can donate to that will add to their class totals.

Parking Info for Leader Avenue

Attention Families

 

Please be aware that Sacramento County has made new parking restrictions on Leader Avenue. Signs are in place and there is limited parking and stopping along the street. This has caused significant back up in the front of our school. We are asking that families who are able, please drop off and pick up your students on the Atlanta/Leader side of our school which is the back side near the Zig Zag walkway. This will alleviate pressure in the front of our school and help keep our kids safe.

 

Please contact Sacramento County Code Enforcement to voice any concerns or suggestions you may have at 916-264-5011.

 

There is also an Old Foothill Farms Neighborhood Task Force meeting that will be held every second Wednesday of the month at Pioneer School at 6:30PM. The first meeting of the year will be September 14th. You can find more information on their website at http://www.oldfoothillfarms.com/Community_Task_Force.html.

Pioneer Needs Assessment

This year Pioneer conducted a “needs assessment” with several groups of people (our students in 4th and 6th grade, our staff and community/parent groups). Below is a summary of what we found from their input. This input will drive our school plan and our school budget priorities.

 

Common Themes from Parents and Community Group:

  1. We would like inviting classrooms
  2. Small class size
  3. EL support so we can communicate with school
  4. Counseling available to students who may need to talk to someone

Common Themes from our Staff

  1. 1:1 technology for K-1 classrooms. Right now we share
  2. More computers and projectors to replace ones that may break throughout year
  3. Playground equipment
  4. Book room supplies and magazine subscriptions for kids
  5. Computer based interventions
  6. Keep our reading intervention teacher

Common Themes from our Students

  1. More computer based intervention programs
  2. Keep our reading teacher
  3. Playground equipment
