Legend Donation Drive

Hi Parents, We have partnered with Legend high school in order to help them collect goods for the homeless for the holiday season. Until December 19th, we will have collection boxes at the main entrance for socks, mittens, granola bars, tissues, hand sanitizer, canned food, and other necessary goods. Legend high school will be donating these goods to help the Denver homeless population during the cold winter. If you would like to help please bring in any of these goods and place them in the donation boxes.

Timely communication between the school and our families is an important tool for enhancing our children’s educational experience and safety. The condition of our current marquee has caused issues with safety and timeliness. In order to enhance communication, our school would like to upgrade our outdoor marquee sign. With the end of the year approaching this is the perfect time to make a tax-deductible donation. If we are able to raise more than the $10,000 that we need for the new marquee, any extra will be added to the PTO general fund for teacher grants and other Pioneer Elementary needs.

Donations are tax-deductible and can be made by check payable to Pioneer Elementary PTO or you can donate online on our Colorado Gives website. ​

Do you own a business or know of a business that would be interested in being a corporate sponsor for our new marquee? This would be a great opportunity for your business to get some recognition, brand building, and exposure while helping fund a safer and faster way to communicate with the Pioneer community and parents. We have several ways to recognize our community businesses including rotating recognition and/or permanent plaques on the new marquee, logos on t-shirts, recognition on flyers for events and posters in the school. If you know a local business that might be interested, please consider sharing this sponsorship opportunity with them. Please contact the Pioneer PTO at ​​ for more information
