Dear 7th grade Parents and Students,


We are pleased to announce that students will select their elective for 8th grade online this year.  Today your child will be coming home with a course description packet letting them know all of the 8th grade electives we offer.  This morning your child was shown how to use the online elective form.  They were also informed not to select their classes until speaking with you this evening.  The online form will be open from today – Friday, May 6th at 8 am.  On Friday May 6th, we ask that all students return their blue card with their parent’s signature. 


Students are highly encouraged to mark their selections on the blue card first.  After the blue card is filled out, please transfer that information over to the online form.


We would like to let you know we are pleased to offer 3 new yearlong pathways in the areas of Creative Computing, Future Engineers and Accelerated Art.  These courses will be offered if there is enough interest for the course.  These are yearlong courses that will go deeper in the content of computing, engineering or art. 


Also, students who are interested in applying for high school level Spanish 1 or Yearbook can pick up an application in the office.  Spanish and Yearbook applications are due by Friday, May 6th at 8 am as well.


Please note that we will be placing students in their elective based on their online submission.  If you do not have access to a computer at home or have a difficult time using the link listed below; please know that we have computers available at school.  Students can use our media center beginning at 7:30 am daily, at lunch and after school as well.


Thank you,


The Counselors

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 are 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 2015-2016 school year!
