Dear Pioneer Families,
Welcome to the 2020-2021 School Year!
There are many changes this year due to COVID-19. Though we begin our year 100% virtual, we hope to see you in person once our district can transition safely into a hybrid learning model. I invite you to stay informed by visiting our website and joining our Facebook or Instagram accounts. We are committed to supporting your child, giving the best school year possible during these uncertain times.
Our Assistant Principal, Mrs. Kameelah Green, and I are honored to work beside a dedicated and kind staff. We always begin by reflecting on the successes and challenges of the past and then create new goals for our future. Having a growth mindset, learning through mistakes, and persevering through difficult moments is the key to achieving academic success. By combining our efforts and supporting our children in these endeavors together, they will be well prepared for college, career, and life.
This school year, we continue to work on our Positive Behavior Intervention and Support Program (also known as PBIS) to help us build a positive school culture while improving parent engagement and student attendance. PBIS helps us move towards "expected behaviors" rather than direct punishment. PBIS, Kimochi, along with Restorative Justice and Mindfulness are some of the programs we use to support the social-emotional development of our students.
We are also a school that believes in personalized learning and creating opportunities for students to develop their academic skills! As a learning community, we appreciate the partnership of our Parent Teacher Club (PTC), parent-run Art Vista Parent Group, our School Site Council (SSC), and our English Language Advisory Committee (ELAC)! We continue to deeply appreciate the support from the Pioneer community. Together let's celebrate the sounds of hope, optimism, and enthusiasm for an outstanding year ahead.
