School Supplies
Pioneer Elementary School pre-purchased school supply boxes for the 2020-21 school year. Every student received a box. Pioneer PTA is partnering with the school so that families may pay for their supplies. All funds collected for school supplies will be given directly to Pioneer Elementary School.

Walk N’ Roll
In October, Walk N Roll usually helps schools celebrate International Walk to School Day and Walk to School Month. Since school is remote this fall, we are replacing these events with the first ever Youth Walk Challenge! This is a great way to encourage youth to get outside and stay active during remote learning.

All Thurston County youth can participate by walking ten days during the month of October. We encourage individual youth, families, childcare facilities and in-person and remote learning classrooms to participate in the event. Participants record the minutes walked each day, then email a photo of themselves walking or a picture of their completed challenge to [email protected] . We will mail all participants a small prize and enter them in a prize drawing for a $50 gift card.
