PTA News April 2016

The Carnival is right around the corner on April 8th.  This event is so much fun for the kids and it couldn’t be done without our teachers who coordinate it or the parents who volunteer to run it (THANK YOU!)  It definitely is a schoolwide function.  There will be games in every classroom, face painting, raffle baskets, a mystery adventure and affordable food.  We hope to see you there.

We are proud to announce that three of our Pioneer Student Reflection Program entries have earned awards at the state level.  Carson A. won a Judge’s Choice award for his photography entry, Payton R. won 2nd place for her literature entry and Tucker A. won 1st place for his photography entry.  All three winners will be invited to and recognized at the State PTA Reflections Celebration in May (date and location TBA).

Tucker’s Reflection entry has now advanced to the National Level where it will compete for an $800 scholarship.  Want to learn more about the PTA Reflections Program?  Visit www.pta.org/programs/reflections.   Kids can start working on their entries for the 2016-2017 school year theme, “What is Your Story?”   The entries can be pieces that the student has created at school, summer camp, home or with a mentor.  2016-2017 school year entries will not need to be turned into the Pioneer PTA Reflections Chair until January 2017.

Do you have questions, suggestions or just want to be more involved in the PTA or volunteer at school? Please feel free to e-mail us at pioneerpta@pioneerschool.com and we will get you connected.
