Pioneer Middle School

Welcome to school year 2015-2016
at Pioneer Middle School
Mission Statement

Pioneer Middle School is a great place to learn. 

We are committed to providing a safe, secure environment where everyone values academic excellence and personal growth.

It’s hard to believe that September and the start of the 2015-2016 school year is just around the corner.  It seems like we just stood outside and waved goodbye to our students in June.  The summer here at the Middle School has been extremely busy and active.  Middle School and High School summer school, professional staff development, recreation programs and band lessons to name a few.

Myself, Mr. Weidner and Mrs. Slocum along with our teachers and staff have also been working hard this summer to make sure that the 2015-2016 school year is better than ever.  Pioneer Middle School continues to be a child-centered, family focused and an educator friendly place.  As a staff and a building of one, we will continue to instruct using cognitive engagement, critical thinking and 21st century skills.  In addition, we will be encouraging our students to show pride in themselves, become passionate about something they are interested in and to learn how to persevere through challenges.  Our goal is to promote the intellectual development and academic achievement of all students and the personal and social development of each child in addition to partnering with parents and guardians.

We look forward to seeing our returning families and students on September 2nd as well as welcome our 5th graders and new students.  Pioneer Middle School is a great place to be.  If there is anything I can do, please do not hesitate to contact me either by e-mails at or 716-492-9393.
