Pinetree County Fair - This Friday - March 22nd, 2019!
The Pinetree County Fair (normally known as the Harvest Festival) is coming this Friday - March 22nd, 2019 from 4:00pm to 8:00pm and wristbands are now on sale. Pre-Order your student's wristband now and Save!
This is always one of the best nights of the year to come and hang out with your Pioneers and enjoy the Festivities. This year we'll have returning favorites including the giant slide, obstacle course, train ride, carnival games, lazer tag, photo booth, Video Game Truck and new this year - bounce houses (one for the bigger kids and one for our tiny Pioneers) and a Petting Zoo! We'll also have some really cool silent auctions, raffles and the return of the yummy 6th Grade Food Booth.
We have two tiers of wristbands for the different age groups:
Ages 5-15 Wristbands (adults do not need wristbands)
Presale: $15 - At the Festival: $20
Ages 4 and under Wristbands
Presale: $8 - At the Festival: $10
Food Tickets will be sold separately at the Festival.
The presale for wristbands is always the best deal! Make sure to take advantage of it before the presale ends Wednesday, March 20th. Pre-ordered wristbands will be available for pickup after school on March 22nd and during the Festival.
Please make sure to submit the completed PTA and Sulphur Springs School District Waiver with your cash/check order or print it out and submit to your teacher for online credit/debit orders. Order forms and waivers will be going home with your Pioneers. Wristbands will not be given to the students unless both waivers are completed and signed by their guardian.

Volunteers NeededWe 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. We could also use help with setup up (2:45pm to 4:00pm) and clean up (8:00pm to 8:30pm). If you have older kids in Jr. High or High School, please have them come out and volunteer. We will sign any volunteer hour verification forms for their schools.
Teachers have chosen to sponsor some of our attractions and games. Below is a list of signup genius' that you can click on and see the open slots. Please review and signup. 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. If you don't see your student's teacher listed below, please consider volunteering for one of the other teacher's attraction or game that is listed. If we don't have volunteers during certain shifts, we'll be forced to shut down that attraction/game during that time.

Ms. Gardina and Mrs. Sykes Obstacle Course Inflatable

6th Grade Food Booth
The sixth grade is in charge of food and we are asking for each 6th Grade Family to contribute if possible. This is the list of items needed; we are breaking it down to last names so that we don't get too much of one item and not enough of another. If you can contribute it would be very much appreciated! The more food that is donated, the more $$$ profit can be made at the 6th Grade food booth for the end of year 6th Grade Activities.
A - E : Water bottles (the more, the better!)

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.
