Dear Pioneer Kindergarten Families:
Welcome to Pioneer Elementary! We are excited to have you and your child as part of our Pioneer family. This school year is going to be amazing as we continue to provide academic experiences for our students that are rigorous, relevant, and help them build relationships while making real-world connections. You will be amazed at the amount of wonderful information your child learns this school year. The first day of school has always been magical for me both as a student and as a principal. There is something special about watching this building come to life as we build up to that new beginning. Particularly special is the first day of kindergarten, the start of a new journey for our little ones. Some of you may be filled with questions and a bit anxious about this new journey; others are already on this path and maybe know a little bit more. Rest assured that we are ready to welcome you and your student with open arms! As your child’s principal, it is important to me that everyone who steps through our doors - teachers, students and parents-are excited to be here! This attitude enables us to meet the challenges of academic excellence in a positive, fun, and nurturing environment. We believe that all of us – the school and the community – must work together in an extended family environment to ensure success for all our students. With that in mind, you are invited to be an active participant at Pioneer Elementary School. Whether you are a classroom volunteer, a member of the Parent Volunteer Committee, special event participation, or member of one of our school communities, you are encouraged to be involved! Research on schools clearly demonstrates that parent participation in their child’s school coincides with a greater likelihood of academic success for their child. My door is always open and I welcome your input. Please feel free to call or email me to discuss any concerns or questions you might have throughout the school year. Our friendly office staff is here until 4:00 pm and would be happy to assist you in anyway. Thank you for sending your child to Pioneer. It is a privilege to serve a positive and impactful role in your child’s education. It is with great joy that I welcome you to the Pioneer Panther family!
Principal, Pioneer Elementary
