Week of May 1 - May 5, 2023

Updates from the Pioneer Leadership Team

Pioneer Community,

We are preparing to send the Pioneer class of 2023 off in style! Please click the following link for the most updated Pioneer Senior Schedule.

On Thursday, May 4, we are hosting our annual "8th Grade Extravaganza" where we will welcome our incoming 9th graders for a building tour, the opportunity to meet teachers, learn about course offerings, extracurricular opportunities, music, theater and arts offerings and sports. Students will also be able to sign up and express interest. The school store will be open for incoming 8th grade students to purchase gear as well. The bell schedule is adjusted to accommodate for transporting AAPS middle school students to Pioneer for the 1-2:30 p.m. event. The informational flyer can be found on the "welcome" page area of the Pioneer High School Website.

We would also like to formally invite everyone to check out the new PTSO website - also linked on the Pioneer Webpage under the "PTSO" tab.

Lastly, we would like to recognize and thank all of our Pioneer Office Professionals for the work that they do (check out the photo below from School Office Professional Day)!

With gratitude,

The Pioneer Leadership Team

Ms. Britton, Dr. Hyliard, Ms. Claar, Mr. Hudson, Ms. Bullinger
