Class Spotlight: Mrs. Torrence/Mr. Williams
We miss Mrs. Torrence and think of her often. We’ve been working on our penmanship, our Dolch sight words, our addition and subtraction facts, and our Eureka Math and Journeys Reading. We did a puppet show for our parents with our art teacher, Mrs. Lemnah.
Staff Spotlight: Amy Plank
"Hello, I'm Amy and I'm a Paraeducator II at Quincy Elementary, Pioneer Campus. My "Why" for doing what I do is I'm good with kids and my job is a daily motivation to help, empower, and improve our community's students in school. I have care for what I do, and as an educator I feel pride that I give students support throughout the week to learn, smile and come back each day with confidence. I enjoy laughing and spending time with my son, family, and friends. I love going on walks, and living in simplicity in our small mountain town. Always remember, encouragement and care can make a huge difference!"
Instructional Minutes: Due to the recent weather we will need to make up some instructional minutes. Starting Monday, March 6th Pioneer will be dismissed at 2:30 pm Monday through Friday, until the end of the year.
Toolbox Next Week: We will focus on the empathy tool and being safe.
Parent Volunteers: COVID restrictions have been lifted and we miss having you involved and on campus. If you are interested in volunteering on the Pioneer campus please use this link to fill out a short survey.
Drills throughout the Year: Our children’s safety is our top priority. For this reason, we will practice fire drills and lockdown drills throughout the year. Our staff has been trained in the A.L.I.C.E procedures. Since this information, is new to many of our students they may be coming home with more questions. Thank you for your support in building a safe, educational environment where our students can thrive.
Bus or pick-up: Please let Mrs. Ashley and your child's teacher know by 1:00 pm if you need them to ride the bus or be picked up. This helps us have a smooth afternoon and ensure everyone arrives home safely!

All Californians now have access to free, online tutoring
Click here to start your free homework help session
Real-time free homework help is now available for California K-12 students through HelpNow, a program of the California State Library, by laptop, tablet, or phone from qualified tutors using state curriculum and standards.
The HelpNow pilot program currently offers help in Math and Language Arts, in English and Spanish, at any time of the day or night. Help for other core K-12 subjects is available between 10 a.m. and 10 p.m. in English, Spanish, Mandarin, Cantonese, Vietnamese, and Tagalog, with no age limit to who can take advantage of the resource.
Tutors can provide a virtual whiteboard, conduct live audio interactions with students, and work with learners on a wide range of concepts. Students are expected to work through the content and learn from the feedback. Tutors do not provide answers — they provide guidance and help.
All tutors have passed background checks and possess, at a minimum, a bachelor’s degree.
Anyone using a computer inside of California can benefit from the live “HelpNow” program.
