Pinetree County Fair - Reserve the Date - Friday - March 22nd, 2019!
Please reserve the date - the Pinetree County Fair (normally known as the Harvest Festival) is coming Friday - March 22nd, 2019 from 4:00pm to 8:00pm. Wristband sales will begin March 1st.
Flyers will be going home from your teachers for donations to their class basket to put up for Silent Auction at the Carnival. Each class will have a different theme basket, please consider donation to you student's class basket. Money raised from the baskets fund enrichment classes. Also, teachers will be sending home signup sheets to signup and volunteer at their class attraction or game. We at the PTA always want to provide the best Carnival for our Pioneers but we can’t do it without the parents and teacher volunteers to help us run everything safely and smoothly. The PTA’s motto is “Many Hands Make Light Work” and we could use as many hands as we can get. Please let your kid's teacher know if you can volunteer a half hour shift (or more) which still leaves plenty of time to spend with your kiddos at the carnival the rest of the night.

Join the Pinetree PTA!
Let's see if we can bypass last year's membership total. If you haven't joined the Pinetree PTA, make sure to join today! We're less than 20 members away from passing last year's total!
As you can see, we have kicked off our Membership drive with a cool "Rock & Roll" theme because Pinetree PTA Members Rock!
Come join the Pinetree PTA and have a voice in your child's education. Please note that joining the PTA doesn't require you to attend the meetings or volunteer although we and your students would LOVE if you did. The Pinetree PTA was able to increase the membership count in the 2017-18 year by over 10% over the 2016-17 school year. Let's show that we can do it again.
