Pennies for Patients
Did you know? Every 3 minutes someone is diagnosed with a blood cancer and every 9 minutes someone dies. That means in one 7 hour school day, 140 people will be diagnosed with a blood cancer and 42 people will lose their battle.
Pioneer K-8 is joining the fight and collecting money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society so they can fund research and care for patients. Help Pioneer K-8 reach our goal of $2,017 by February 28th!
Turn in your loose change or dollar bills to your child's classroom teacher and help them earn a prize.
--> A bronze pennant will be awarded to all classrooms that raise $100-$199.
--> A silver pennant will be awarded to all classrooms that raise $200-$299.
--> A gold pennant will be awarded to all classrooms that raise $300 or more.
--> The classroom that raises the most money will be awarded a celebration party. Last year's winner (Geer - 7th) won a pizza party.

Parking Info for Leader Avenue
Please be aware that Sacramento County has made new parking restrictions on Leader Avenue. Signs are in place and there is limited parking and stopping along the street. This has caused significant back up in the front of our school. We are asking that families who are able, please drop off and pick up your students on the Atlanta/Leader side of our school which is the back side near the Zig Zag walkway. This will alleviate pressure in the front of our school and help keep our kids safe.
Please contact Sacramento County Code Enforcement to voice any concerns or suggestions you may have at 916-264-5011.
There is also an Old Foothill Farms Neighborhood Task Force meeting that will be held every second Wednesday of the month at Pioneer School at 6:30PM. The first meeting of the year will be September 14th. You can find more information on their website at http://www.oldfoothillfarms.com/Community_Task_Force.html.
