Pioneer fifth graders work the cross walks in the mornings and afternoons to help keep students safe when walking or riding to school. Fifth grade teacher Mr. Olmsted trains and organizes this dedicated group.
The Pioneer PTA supports our annual school play through Capital Playhouse's "Students on Stage" program. Students in grades 3-5 are invited to audition for the school play. Everyone gets a part, and students row and learn about theater in the process.
Science Club was a tremendous addition to Pioneer last year. Students met with teacher extraordinaire, eric Baker, for a week of learning and fun.
