We have had a great first month of 2015! So far this month our students have shown what they have learned this year through MAP testing. This is an opportunity for us to determine how quickly our students are growing. Each student had personalized goals they were trying to meet. We will discuss these results along with AP results at Parent Teacher conferences coming up in February. We also completed ACCESS testing this month. Our students did a great job of showing how much they are learning and how they are pushing themselves to be ready for college and lives of opportunity.
January also saw the continuation of the girls’ and boys’ basketball season. They have been practicing hard and playing well so far. Their next game is on February 4th, against Wyatt at Manual High School. Be there to support your fellow Panthers!
We have a lot of exciting events coming in February. February 5th we have our Town Hall meeting. This is an opportunity for families and Pioneer staff to staff to exchange thoughts, concerns, and ideas so that we can all approach the next 15 months as a unified force working for the benefit of Pioneer students. The meeting will begin at 5:30. I look forward to seeing all of our Pioneer families and having an opportunity to hear your voices!
On February 11th and 12th, students will get to show what they have learned throughout AP 5 on their AP tests. Then on February 13th we will be celebrating Valentines’ Day with a variety of activities including Valentines’ Day themed presentations and classroom festivities. We will be sending out a flyer with more information about these events soon, so keep an eye out!
We looking forward to a great February!
