I hope you are enjoying a wonderful summer. I also hope you are relaxing, recharging and gearing up for a new school year. I am delighted that you are all part of our amazing learning community. I welcome and value your positive energy and dedication to excellence in education. I look forward to working with you and your children.
A large amount of time, effort and careful consideration has gone into the process of student placement for the 2018-2019 school year. We used input from staff and families as well as student learning styles when considering placement. Classrooms are balanced both academically and socially to ensure a positive learning experience for all students. Our lists are also structured to ensure equitable class sizes at each grade level. Moving students is difficult without causing imbalances and inequities. Thank you for being positive with your child about this process. ALL of our staff work hard to make school a wonderful, positive experience for ALL students.

Our library is whole once again. The company worked diligently for two weeks and was able to complete the work. It looks beautiful! In addition, the construction company refinished the gym floor so it looks shiny and new again! Maintenance will also be installing metal poles on the outside. This will prevent this accident from happening again. We have also installed several security cameras throughout the building to increase safety. Pioneer has also gone to a single point of entry during school hours. That means that the front door is the only door that is unlocked during instructional hours except recess and lunch time. This will help us make sure the building is secure at all times.
Our Pioneer office will re-open on August 13th when our administrative assistant returns. I will be in the office off and on starting August 1st if you need any questions answered. I am looking forward to greeting students and families again on August 27th at Pioneer’s Open House from 4pm to 6pm. It is both an honor and privilege to serve as your principal. Please feel free to stop by and say hello in August. Together, we will make this a year of growth, learning and achievement for all Pioneer Elementary students.
