The Quincy School District will be purchasing school supplies for all Kindergarten through 5th grade students again this year. Students will only need to bring a backpack to school. Thank you QSD!
Greetings Pioneer Families and Friends,
We are so excited to begin our school year together in person full time on Wednesday, September 1, 2021. Students may arrive starting at 7:45am and class will begin at 8:15am. Mondays will go back to being a late start with school starting at 9:30 AM. Students may arrive on campus Monday at 8:45 AM. Monday through Friday our school day will end at 3:00pm. Students will be returning to a traditional schedule which includes going to music, PE, enrichment, and library. Students will also be eating inside the cafeteria. Breakfast and lunch will be served at school. At this time, both meals are free to all students. Currently, masks are still required. We are continuing to watch closely for updated guidance from the Washington Department of Health and our local Grant County Health District regarding mask requirements. I will let parents know if that requirement changes. Students will still be able to take mask breaks outside during recess and lunch time. More information about our return to school will be sent out to all Pioneer Elementary families through the Remind app and via Facebook & Instagram. If you have Facebook and/or Instagram, please make sure to like the Pioneer Elementary pages to access more information and fun content throughout the school year. Our office staff is now off for a well deserved summer break so the office is closed. Our office will re-open on August 16th, Monday through Friday from 7:30 am-4 pm.
Our Pioneer Elementary Open House is currently scheduled for Monday, August 30th from 4:00 to 6:00 PM. We look forward to seeing you all in person! We are also planning to walk in the Farmer Consumer Awareness Day parade on Saturday, September 18th. Families are welcome to join in the fun!
We are looking forward to launching a new year of learning and fun!
Have a wonderful summer,
Principal, Pioneer Elementary
Summer vacation is an exciting time for many students. The students no longer have to wake up early, no longer have to go to school, no longer have to read. However, if students stop doing these things all summer it can have a drastic effect on all the information they worked so hard to learn during the year. The process of students losing information is known as the “summer slide.” The summer slide is real, in fact research shows that some students can lose as much as two months of reading progress. That is like missing approximately 40 days of school in one year!
Parents can help students maintain the learning skills they have developed by helping their kids complete academic tasks into their daily routine. These don’t have to be difficult or necessarily follow a “set curriculum.” The students simply need to continue using their brain, practice basic math skills, and interact with books and reading all summer.
Your children should also try to do the following every day so their child stays healthy and happy.

The Quincy Public Library has a list of great activities to participate in all summer and they are free of charge!

Como Ayudarle a su Niño Durante El Verano!
Vacaciones de Verano es un tiempo de emociones para muchos estudiantes. Los estudiantes no se tienen que despertar temprano, no más de venir a la escuela, y nos de leer. Aunque, si los estudiantes paran de hacer todas esas cosas todo el verano podría hacer un drástico efecto en toda la información que ellos han trabajado tan duro en aprender durante el año. El proceso a que los estudiantes pierden información que es conocido como “deslizamiento de verano” (summer slide). ¡Esto es real! En efecto, investigación demuestra que algunos estudiantes pueden perder hasta dos meses del progreso de lectura. ¡Esto es perdiendo aproximadamente 40 días de clases en un año!
Padres puede ayudar a los estudiantes en mantener las habilidades de aprendizajes que ellos han desarrollado en ayudar a sus hijos a incorporar las tareas académicas a sus rutinas diarias.
