Welcome to Pioneer Middle School and the 2017-2018 school year! At Pioneer Middle School we are proud to be a community that is dedicated to excellence in education and committed to our community and to the future of our children. Outstanding staff, teachers, administrators and parents make Pioneer one of the top award winning schools in Orange County.
The Pioneer Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) would like to invite you to join the PTO and participate in our Membership Drive. The PTO is a way for parents and teachers to work together towards the common goal of providing a well-rounded academic and enriching learning environment for our students.
WHY JOIN THE PTO?
The public funding that our school receives from the state of California and TUSD does not provide enough funds for many of Pioneer's flagship academic programs and enriching electives. With a yearly operating budget close to $140,000 to provide these programs and school support, our school gratefully turns to Pioneer PTO to help bridge the gap. The following are some of the resources and programs that the Pioneer PTO will support this year:
Art Department | ASB | AVID | Band & Orchestra | Choir | French | Spanish | Graphic Design | Home Economics | Fashion Design |Culinary Arts | Math Department | PAL | PE | Robotics | Science Department Science Olympiad | STEM| Video Production | Web Coding | Academic Subscriptions | Assemblies | Binder Reminder Counselor Conference Program | Educator Classroom Support | Specialty Staff Training | 8th Grade Promotion Activities
We are asking for a 100% tax-deductible donation of $150 per student.
That equates to roughly 80 cents per day to fund all of our programs! A permanent tile on Pioneer’s “Wall of Fame” will acknowledge donations of $150 or more received by September 29, 2017. Families donating $500 or more will also be entered into a raffle drawing for an iPad. Plus, for each additional $100 donation over $500, you will receive 1 extra raffle ticket.
Enclosed is the PTO Membership Drive packet. The packet includes more information about this year’s drive and the PTO Membership Form. Please read through the packet, fill out the Membership Form and return it with your donation at registration on August16-18 or by Friday, September 29th to the front office.
Your voluntary donation, no matter how big or small, will enrich the lives of our students each and every day.
Focus on the Future….SEE the Impact YOU Can Make!
