Building Changes for 2016-17

There will be a fifth section added for Kindergarten, First and Second Grades. This will greatly reduce class sizes for 2016-17. A trailer is being placed on the playground to accommodate additional classroom space. We will be hiring additional teachers for these classrooms.

Library will be considered part of the "specials" classes next year, along with Art, PE, and Music. This will also reduce the number of students in specials classes.

Carolyn Case, second grade, is retiring, and Debbie Ferguson, second grade, is moving and will not be returning. Stephanie Kampeter, fifth grade teacher, will be taking one of the second grade positions for next year.

Scott Salmons, Assistant Principal, will be staying with Pioneer Trail next year.
