We have innovative staff here at Pioneer! Mrs. J, our speech pathologist, teamed up with Mr. Towner, our innovation specialist, to create and 3D print a mouth model. Students who work with Mrs. J, work on proper tongue placement to correctly pronounce letters and sounds. This new model is helping students more concretely see an abstract concept. We are so thankful for team collaboration to help meet the needs of our students here at Pioneer.

Day 2’s event: Our students got to hear Goodman Middle School’s Band and Choir perform. For many of our students this was their first school assembly and they made us proud! Take a look at these pictures. A special recognition of Ms. Julie Allison and our own Ms. Smith for bringing a love of music to kids. PSD can feel the beat!

We are so excited to see how our Pathfinders are showing kindness in our community! Many students have returned kindness hearts this week. It's not too late to bring one in!



Traditionally, the enrollment interest process for Pioneer Elementary opens mid-February; however, due to a changing platform, we will need to postpone the opening of the enrollment interest period to later in the spring. Our goal is open enrollment sometime between mid-March and mid-April. ENROLLMENT INTEREST WILL ONLY BE OPEN FOR TWO WEEKS THIS YEAR.

The Peninsula School District will host three Levies 2023 - Information Meetings in January, to educate voters on the two levy measures that will be on the February 14, 2023 ballot.

The three-year Replacement Educational Programs and Operations Levy (Proposition 1) will replace the expiring 2020 levy and provide continued investment in PSD staff and programs. This levy accounts for about 18 percent of the district’s overall budget.

The six-year Safety, Security and Technology Levy (Proposition 2) will provide enhanced safety, security systems and technology improvements across the District. It will create a dedicated funding source to better protect, serve and prepare our students for the future.

Voters can learn more about these levies and ask questions at these public information meetings. The meetings will be held on the following dates and times:

•Wednesday, January 11th at 6 p.m. - PSD District Office and Zoom
