Pioneer Newsletter 11-6-22Dear Pioneer Families,

We had a busy week with our Club Perry Assemblies and our art teacher doing a project with our Paw Print winners during lunch on Thursday! Thanks to all the families that came out to our auction, dressed up in the 70s theme, and donated so much to Pioneer! It was a great success!  

This Week: Picture Retake Day is Tuesday (8th). See below for more info on Picture Retake Day. Thursday (10th) and Friday (11th) there is no school. Thursday (10th) is a teacher work day and the office will be closed. 

Next Week (November 14th-18th): Parent Teacher Conference Week. Students will be dismissed at 1:30pm for 1st-6th grades. 

Kinder/TK Schedule (Parent/Teacher Conference Week): 

AM 8:15-11:35

PM 11:50-3:10

Youth Truth Survey (October 31st-November 18th): 

DJUSD has a survey called Youth Truth that is given to Pioneer faculty, students (3rd-6th graders), and families. Here is the *corrected* link to the parent survey: ytsurvey.org/djusdfamily22 . This will only take around 15 minutes to complete and this is your chance to give feedback about how Pioneer is doing so far (academics, behavior, culture/climate, etc)! This survey is now open and ends on November 18th. We would appreciate your feedback so that we as a faculty can learn and grow from it! 

Book Fair

Come one! Come all! To the Greatest Book Fair on Earth!  In just a few short weeks our library will be transformed into a mind-blowing circus and we can’t wait to see you there!

When: November 14-18

Times: Before school 7:30am-8:30am (NEW TIME!)

   During Lunch 11:35am-1:15pm 

   After School/During conferences 1:30pm-3:30pm

The PTA cannot put on this event without your help. Please consider signing up to volunteer during the book fair. Sign-Up Genius link HERE.

The PTA is also looking to borrow a few items from our families that they promise to return after the fair is over:

· Market string lights, like the ones from Costco.  If we can’t find these to borrow we would consider white Christmas lights.

· Stuffed animals that are typically at a circus: lion, tiger, zebra, giraffe, seal, elephant.  The larger the better!

· Very Large boxes (to make train cars)

If you are crafty and want to help with decor, reach out to Stephanie HERE.
