On Friday evening we sent an automated phone announcement to about 280 parents advising them that the "Contacts" list in their Parent Portal accounts have not been completed properly.
The "Contacts" list in your Aeries Parent Portal is now used as your Child's Emergency Card.
We have asked the parents that we sent the notifications to to update their accounts and print the new "Student Emergency Card", sign it and return it to the office.
So far we have only received 20 back (out of 280).
It is very important that we get these returned ASAP.
If you received the call and have not completed it yet - please do so TODAY.
If you are not sure if this pertains to you, please log into your Parent Portal account and check your "Contacts" list.
It should be updated with ALL of the names and phone numbers of all of the individuals that you authorize to pick up your child from school, including yourselves.
All parents, guardians, etc… should be listed along with anyone else you give permission to pick your child up in case of an emergency.
If your "Contacts" list did not have anyone listed or if you did not have Parents and/orGuardians listed - we need your account updated and your child's new "Student Emergency Card" printed, signed and brought to the office by Friday, December 9th BEFORE SCHOOL.
The printed form will say "Student Emergency Card" at the top of the page you print.
Keep in mind that this list can be updated and changed by you as need throughout the school year.
The link to the Aeries Parent Portal is on the attachment below.
You will need your log-in and password information for your account to make changes.
If you have any questions, please contact the school office at (909)949-7770.
If you have chosen a name from the Giving Tree please remember the wrapped gifts are due to the Health Office by Friday, December 9th.
If you were unable to stop by to choose a child and/or would like to donate a $20 gift card to the program, we will make sure it gets to a needy child/family.
Thank you in advance for helping to make a child’s holiday a little brighter.
Message from Our Principal
Welcome to Pioneer Jr. High School, home of the 49ers. We are excited about our learning community here on campus!
I look forward to seeing all of our returning students and meeting our new arrivals. I am generally out in front of campus before and after school, so if you see me and have a question, please don’t hesitate to come by.
Our mission statement is “We reach, teach and touch the lives of junior high students, preparing them for tomorrow. We expand their intellectual and physical abilities, develop high levels of proficiency in a diverse curriculum, and address the needs of the whole individual”. Guided by our core values of “integrity”, “respect”, “learning”, “honesty”, and “responsibility”, we take this mission as sacred to our calling as educators charged with meeting the educational needs of all students. We invite the community to help us carry out this mission as we all play an integral part in shaping the lives of our students.
We have a history of strong parent involvement at Pioneer, and strive to work together to meet the academic and socio-emotional needs of all children. Our staff has been working hard to prepare your children for rich and meaningful learning experiences inside and outside of the classroom walls. In addition to the implementation of Common Core, it is our desire to foster what is best in all of our students to become college and career ready upon graduation from high school.
Please check back often on our website to find out about all the wonderful activities and programs available at Pioneer Jr. High. If you have questions please contact the main office, and we will direct your call to the right person.
Here’s to an excellent 2016-2017 school year!
