CELEBRATE! CELEBRATE! As a school, we had great results from the state assessment last school year. The students in 5th grade last year performed at an amazing level on their NeSA (Nebraska State Accountability) assessment. The 5th grade was 100% proficient in Reading, Math and Science. What a great accomplishment and celebration. Nice job staff, students, and parents. Just another reason to be proud of being a PIONEER! The higher level of excellence continues.
3rd grade is working on sequencing in our stories and writing. Mrs. Leishman’s readers wrote their recipes and Mrs. Szlachetka’s readers followed the directions. The 3 pictures here pretty well sum up the situations of “OH NO, I FORGOT!” In the end everyone was able to eat a sandwich. I do believe they will be more careful next time!
The dress code for this year’s homecoming dance will be the same as last year’s dress code, but this year we are going to allow jeans, shorts and t-shirts. We will not allow athletic shorts or sweats, and male students cannot wear tank tops. If you have any questions, talk to Mr. Green or Mrs. Shields. The dance will be held on Saturday, September 27, at the Community Building from 8:00 – 11:00. The cost is $5/person.
Independent art students are making the most of the building construction. Students were given permission to create a mural on two pieces of drywall that are currently blocking an old exit. The mural was created by seniors Vince Hartline, Michelle DeWitt, and Madison Queen. The students have plans to create another mural in the gym on two additional pieces of drywall.
