Dear Pioneer families,

Thank you so much for helping our Pioneer community by donating to Pioneer’s Winter Giving and Staff Appreciation events this holiday season. Your support has made a huge difference to families in need and staff at Pioneer.

With your support, we were able to help 46 families, including over 100 students with groceries, clothing and gifts. In addition, every member of our staff was able to select a gift card and enjoy some holiday goodies.

We couldn’t have done this without your help and support. Thank you very much for your kindness and generosity.

We have another wonderful opportunity to volunteer at Pioneer with the upcoming Winter dance— Jan. 20th. If you are interested in chaperoning/volunteering at the dance, please fill out the following form. There is also a signature form that needs to be completed and returned to the school at the end of the form. There are two time slots 8- 10 pm and 10- 12 pm. We will need plenty of help to make sure that our student can have a memorable time.
