Classroom Spotlight: Mrs. Kurpjuweit & Sipe
Chasing Leprechauns and Rainbows!
2nd graders in Mrs. Sipe’s and Mrs. Kurpjuweit's class have been busy in science! Last week students used materials to construct leprechaun traps, in hopes of catching those mischievous, little tricksters! This week in Mystery Science, we discovered that water acts like a prism, splitting white sunlight into all the colors of the rainbow. Each student created their own rainbow using cups of water, sunlight, and plain white paper. If you look closely on the sidewalk, you can see the rainbows they captured.
Staff Spotlight: Bruce Williams
I am a long-term substitute for Mrs Torrence’s first grade class. I became an educator because I enjoyed the company of children. In my downtime I am very involved with my church. My wife and I love to pull our fifth wheel around the US as well as playing with our grandchildren.
Instructional Minutes: Due to the recent weather we will need to make up some instructional minutes. Starting Monday, March 6th Pioneer will be dismissed at 2:30 pm Monday through Friday, until the end of the year.
Toolbox Next Week: We will focus on the empathy tool and being safe.
Parent Volunteers: COVID restrictions have been lifted and we miss having you involved and on campus. If you are interested in volunteering on the Pioneer campus please use this link to fill out a short survey.
Drills throughout the Year: Our children’s safety is our top priority. For this reason, we will practice fire drills and lockdown drills throughout the year. Our staff has been trained in the A.L.I.C.E procedures. Since this information, is new to many of our students they may be coming home with more questions. Thank you for your support in building a safe, educational environment where our students can thrive.
Bus or pick-up: Please let Mrs. Ashley and your child's teacher know by 1:00 pm if you need them to ride the bus or be picked up. This helps us have a smooth afternoon and ensure everyone arrives home safely!

All Californians now have access to free, online tutoring
Click here to start your free homework help session
Real-time free homework help is now available for California K-12 students through HelpNow, a program of the California State Library, by laptop, tablet, or phone from qualified tutors using state curriculum and standards.
The HelpNow pilot program currently offers help in Math and Language Arts, in English and Spanish, at any time of the day or night. Help for other core K-12 subjects is available between 10 a.m. and 10 p.m. in English, Spanish, Mandarin, Cantonese, Vietnamese, and Tagalog, with no age limit to who can take advantage of the resource.
Tutors can provide a virtual whiteboard, conduct live audio interactions with students, and work with learners on a wide range of concepts. Students are expected to work through the content and learn from the feedback. Tutors do not provide answers — they provide guidance and help.
All tutors have passed background checks and possess, at a minimum, a bachelor’s degree.
Anyone using a computer inside of California can benefit from the live “HelpNow” program.
Simply click on this link to get started with a live tutoring session now. The average wait time is 23 seconds.
