Pioneers for Education (PFE) is the parent/teacher organization that supports the students and schools in the Fort Calhoun school district. We are committed to working together with parents, teachers, and students to provide fun and educational opportunities for both the Elementary School and High School. The PFE gives back to both the high school and elementary school by financially supporting many activities like Post Prom, Family Movie Night, Donuts with Dad/Mornings with Mom, Spirit Fridays, Speakers & Assemblies, Staff Appreciation Week, and many others.  We also sponsor many fun and educational events like the Summer Bridge Workbook Program, One School/ One Book Reading Program, and Senior Scholarship opportunities. 

In addition to our corporate sponsorships and fundraising opportunities (Fall Walk-a-thon & Fish Fry dessert night), we count on membership dues to help support activities, events, programs, and items for our schools to enrich, engage, and celebrate students! We hope you will consider joining PFE this year to support students, teachers, and the schools. We also hope that you will attend some meetings and help us plan and volunteer for events so that we can continue providing them to our students. We look forward to another great year at the Fort!

If you have any questions about PFE, please contact one of the board members below by email or send us a message on our Facebook page.  Membership forms can be found on this PFE page by following the forms tab and at the offices of both the High School and Elementary.

There are events and programs that the PFE likes to do every year, but we like to change things up sometimes, too. Here is a list of some of the events we’ve done the past couple of years (Covid has required us to modify or cancel some the past 2 years, too). If you have great ideas for new events, please come share them with us at a meeting or send us a message in an email! We love new ideas and fresh perspectives!
