August and September's Character Traits are...


At Pioneer, we are learning that RESPECT means following school rules, appreciating and honoring differences​, being courteous and using our manners, and most importantly treating others how we would like to be treated.

RESPONSIBILITY means we can be trusted to do as we say, being dependable, keeping our promises and honoring our commitments.  It is accepting the consequeinces for what we say and do.
