Harvest Festival - Presale wristbands are on sale now!!!
Save the Date - Friday, October 20th from 4-8:00pm! The PTA is in the midst of planning what we're sure will be another great Harvest Festival. 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 giant slide, obstacle courses*, train rides, games, lazer tag, photo booth and new this year - a Video Game Truck! We'll also have some really cool silent auctions, raffles and the return of the yummy 6th Grade Food Booth.
*This year, we'll also have two obstacle courses, one for the bigger kids and one for our tiny Pioneers.
Also, new this year, we have two tiers of wristbands for the different age groups (we are no longer offering single attraction tickets):
Ages 5+ 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, October 18th

Jedi Master PTA, we are! Join us, you will!
Come join the Pinetree PTA and have a voice in your child's education.

Also, the classes with the most memberships will win some really cool prizes.
We're up to 297 members!!! That's awesome! Go Pinetree!
