Updates from the Pioneer Leadership Team

Pioneer Community,


Welcome back! After snow days and power outages we hope that everyone is safe. This week will be an exciting week at Pioneer. March is reading month and many of our clubs and organizations are promoting reading throughout the community. March is also Women's History Month and our Pioneer Organizations are creating bulletin boards throughout the building.


In February we celebrated and embraced Black History Month. On Friday, March 10, our Pioneer BSU will be hosting the annual Black History Month Assembly! Thank you to Mr. Copeland and the entire BSU for all you do.



Have a great week Pioneer!
