Hello Pioneer Students, Families, and Friends,
ALL OF US WILL LEARN
October is upon us at Pioneer! The leaves are changing rapidly and before we now it, we will be in the heart of winter. I love this time of year. It’s a time for fun fall festivals, pumpkin carving, and that wonderful American tradition of trick or treat on Halloween. As always, Pioneer will participate in a School Spirit Week, centered on themes created by our Student Council, aligned to our Core Knowledge scope and sequence. We look forward to the fun and creative ideas the students and staff come up with. Please remember that if your child chooses not to participate in the fun or has not earned it, they must be in their Pioneer uniform.
If a teammate needs help, we give.
The Pioneer Wellness Team, led by Ms. Alferos, has organized Walk to School Day on October 8th. This is a great opportunity for you and your children to walk to school together. Walk to School Day is a chance for the community (parents, teachers, students, law enforcement and more,) to come together and walk for health, clean air, and safe streets. We are expecting a great event and will meet at the end of the walk on the Adams Street entrance to rally for school wellness and community involvement, and to hand out the Golden Shoe Award!
Read Baby Read!
This month we begin our Read2Kids Campaign. Our event is scheduled for Saturday, October 4th, from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. here at Pioneer Charter. If you have any questions or would like to help out, please contact Mrs. Hinman. In the meantime, it is very important that each Pioneer student is reading a minimum of 30 minutes each night or read to your child if they are in Pre-K –Kindergarten at least 20 minutes each night. If you need more great books to read, please contact your child’s reading teacher and they will happily oblige.
Commitment To Excellence
A huge shout out to parents, Charlene and Carol Duran for their continued efforts in making our mornings safe for all of our team at Pioneer. They have worked very hard to create a drivable space to drop off your children safely each morning. Please continue to respect and support them by obeying the stop signs and cones that are posted from 7:00 a.m. to 7:15 a.m. each morning. If you would like to volunteer to support these wonderful moms at Pioneer, please reach out to Ms. Urgiles in 4th grade who is our staff sponsor for the Pioneer Parent Association.
Parents, our homework completion is at an all-time low. Please make sure your child is either finishing all of their homework, every night, or that they can call their teacher if they have a problem with the homework. These expectations are clearly spelled out in our CTE which is on every one of our walls and in your child’s agenda.
We are a Team & Family.
