Providence Pioneer Day "pioneers" are home on the range.

A year's worth of history, music, and art concluded with the Providence Pioneer Day for Class Two students on April 11 as parents brought to life the American experience of the nineteenth century.

The day started out with the Trail Bosses (dads) rounding up all the Class Two students and corralling them to the prairie (Great Hall), which had been transformed into a Pioneer setting. Students sang folk songs, panned for gold at the gold rush station, and pulled wool. At the shaving station, they practiced shaving with butter knives. Students also played with antique toys that could have very well belonged to Laura Ingalls Wilder. 

The Pioneer boys and girls and some Native Americans square danced, and they finished their day with a picnic on the range.  Will Huffman said, “I liked seeing the live buffalo, an animal they probably used for fur and food.”

Since 1989, Providence Christian School of Texas has provided academically able students from preschool to 8th grade with a challenging educational experience designed to help them know, love, and practice that which is true, good, and excellent, and to prepare them to live purposefully and intelligently in the service of God and man.  Providence’s core values are faith, family, intellect, counterculturalism, and stewardship.
