Posted 5/3/21

Greetings Pioneer Families,


I hope all of you have had a fantastic weekend! This week we will be administering the CAASPP test to all juniors, in the morning, on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. All students will meet for class virtually on those days during the afternoon cohort time, from 12:35 pm to 3 pm. Tomorrow is a normal late start day at 9 am, with in-person students on campus at 9 am, and virtual students meeting online at 12:55 pm. The PioneerGram has details on all of our schedules for you.


Seniors! We are so excited this year to celebrate all students committed to pursuing an education beyond high school. Whether you plan to attend a community college, a 4-year university, a certification program, the military, or any other education past high school, Reach Higher Decision Day will be a wonderful opportunity to recognize the hard work of our graduating students. We will be having a quick walk-up event on Tuesday, May 4th, from 10:30-12:30 in the front parking lot, where students can stop and take a picture in front of the school, wearing a shirt, hat, or other swag representing their commitment after graduation. We would greatly appreciate your input by answering the survey, located in the PioneerGram, as we start the planning process. Contact Mr. Baxter if you have any questions.


Yearbooks are still available for purchase, but supply is running out! You can visit the Jostens website to order your copy today.
