Dear Pioneer students, families, and friends,
Happy New Year! I hope this note finds you all well and ready to kick off the second half of our year with full speed ahead. We would like to take this opportunity to assure you that your student’s growth here at Pioneer is our number one goal. We are committed to getting your child to and through college. That will never change.
As you know, there has been a change in leadership beginning January 5th. I am honored and excited to move into the position of School Leader. For those of you who do not know me already, I began my career at Pioneer in 2007 teaching 6th grade. For the past 2.5 years I have been the assistant principal working hard to support teachers and students. I am familiar with the history of the school’s success and the community we serve. I am committed to keeping school culture consistent and to focus our goals on increased student achievement.
We ask for your support and understanding as we move forward. Faculty and staff are more committed than ever to positively shape our students socially and academically. We have had the opportunity to reflect on our strengths and challenges, and are committed to supporting your students in their growth as learners and people. We will be transparent with you on how we are working to find a better way. We will also be looking to get more input from our community moving forward. Together, we can make a difference in our kids’ lives.
Happy January Birthdays
