Winter Edition- November to December 2018

Native American Heritage Month

November is recognized as Native American Indian Heritage Month. A large portion of our student population is Native American students. Our Youth Development Specialist with the Indian Education department, Mrs. Manessa Locklear, did an excellent job organizing programs for students to connect with their heritage. Presentations were presented by our Lumbee Ambassadors and Senior Miss Lumbee. Students also had the opportunity to meet Miss NCNAYO and former Pioneer student. Students also learned about other tribes in their classrooms with their teachers.

Demember to Remember

December PTO was a huge SUCCESS!

Our students and staff really worked together to make our time at school in December one to remember. Students in ensembles performed in our winter concert entitled, "The Spirit of the Season". Various grade levels participated in dance performances, songs, recorder performances, drumming, and piano. Students show great talent through hard work and dedication throughout the show. Mrs. Lytch and Mr. T did a great job preparing our students for this winter concert. Many thanks to our music teachers for their talents and dedication to our pioneer students.

Our administration and PTO treated teachers to a Christmas luncheon and snacks as well as treats to make December a little sweeter. Students also participated in themed days including wearing Santa hats, Grinch day and Deck the Halls with Ugly Sweaters.
