Mission Statements and Welcome Letter

Principal’s Message
It is my pleasure to welcome you to a new and exciting school year! For those of you who have attended Pioneer Elementary in the past, we are glad you are returning. New families, we are pleased to have you join us. Your child’s success in school is enhanced when there is a mutually supportive effort between family and school staff. Your support and involvement are needed and always welcome at Pioneer. There are many ways to be involved, including opportunities to volunteer, attending awards assemblies, participating in PTO and Title I school wide events and joining your child for lunch. The school year 2016-17 will be my 11th year as the Principal at Pioneer. Being the leader of such a dedicated and dynamic staff is most rewarding. May this year be one of wonderment and high achievement for your child and great satisfaction for you.
