“What Is Your Story?”

That’s the theme for the 2016-17 Reflections Art Program which has been bringing the arts to life for more than 10 million students since 1969. And California State PTA and its members, families and kids are on the forefront of this amazing program, which increases community awareness of the importance of arts in education.

Reflections encourages students of all ages to:

  • Unleash creative talents and be inspired
  • Express themselves imaginatively in their artwork
  • Experience the fun and joy of making art
  • Tap into critical-thinking skills to create art inspired by the annual theme
  • Receive positive recognition for their original works of art.

Please review general entry rules and information at Pioneer Junior High Website under PTSA/Reflections (forms are also attached below).  

Entry Forms are available on-line & at the school office.

Pioneer Junior High Award of Excellence honorees will receive:

  • Award of Excellence Certificate 
  • A Chance to WIN Awesome Prizes (Gift Cards, Art Supplies and more)
  • The opportunity to showcase their artwork at the Council, District, State and National Level

2016 PTSA Membership Drive


Now through September 30th, the PTSA is holding its annual membership drive.

Why should you and your parent join?  Well, the PTSA helps sponsor things like dances, the ASB, school sports and other activities. 


But maybe this is will interest you even more – The homeroom with the highest ratio of memberships to students gets a doughnut party!  That’s right, doughnuts at school!  YUM!


And, if that isn’t enough… IF we exceed last year’s membership, Mr. Dover has agreed to let 4 people spray him with silly string.

Only kids or teachers who have turned in memberships will be eligible for this random drawing, so make sure to join today!


PTSA membership envelopes went home in your enrollment packet, but if you need another, visit the office.  Membership is only $8 a person. 

If you’ve already turned in your membership, don’t worry – they still count towards both the doughnut party and silly string extravaganza.


Thank you for your support.

PTSA Membership Chairperson

Message from Our Principal

Welcome to Pioneer Jr. High School, home of the 49ers.  We are excited about our learning community here on campus!

I look forward to seeing all of our returning students and meeting our new arrivals.  I am generally out in front of campus before and after school, so if you see me and have a question, please don’t hesitate to come by. 

Our mission statement is “We reach, teach and touch the lives of junior high students, preparing them for tomorrow.  We expand their intellectual and physical abilities, develop high levels of proficiency in a diverse curriculum, and address the needs of the whole individual”.  Guided by our core values of “integrity”, “respect”, “learning”, “honesty”, and “responsibility”, we take this mission as sacred to our calling as educators charged with meeting the educational needs of all students.  We invite the community to help us carry out this mission as we all play an integral part in shaping the lives of our students.

We have a history of strong parent involvement at Pioneer, and strive to work together to meet the academic and socio-emotional needs of all children.  Our staff has been working hard to prepare your children for rich and meaningful learning experiences inside and outside of the classroom walls. In addition to the implementation of Common Core, it is our desire to foster what is best in all of our students to become college and career ready upon graduation from high school.

Please check back often on our website to find out about all the wonderful activities and programs available at Pioneer Jr. High.  If you have questions please contact the main office, and we will direct your call to the right person.

Here’s to an excellent 2016-2017 school year!
