Dear Pioneer Families-


We had an amazing week here at Pioneer Elementary as students learned about holiday traditions throughout the world. They earned an all school pajama party as each class attained 50 pack tickets per class. We have included pictures below of our holiday spirit!


Thank you for all of your support this first semester! I can not thank you enough for your kindness and welcoming me to Pioneer. I am proud of the work that we have collectively done this first semester. Here are just a few highlights:

  • Our WiN (What I Need) groups have created positive progress to all students. We are seeing huge growth in Reading, especially, as our students are rebounding from the pandemic, quarantines, hybrid and all that the last years were!

  • With our fantastic PTO, we  have hosted amazing community events like our Back to School Bash, Halloween Literacy Parade (with our chickens!) our Veteran’s Day celebration, Book Fair and Holiday Shop.

  • Not only are children growing academically but socially-emotionally students are making gains. Pioneer students are actively participating in Book Clubs, Chicken Yoga, Student Council and Battle of the Books. In class, they are learning about the zones of regulation, character traits and much more.


We are so excited to see you all in 2022! Our first day back to school will be Tuesday, January 4, 2022.


Wishing you a very wonderful holiday season!

Gina Landis
