There are great opportunities for all Pioneer students to be involved in the Pioneer community. Here's a brief look at some of the enriching experiences offered to our students through clubs, activities and exploratory classes.

Mathcounts: The mission of Mathcounts is to increase enthusiasm for and enhance achievement in middle school mathematics throughout the United States. Our teams members will meet at different times; the 7th & 8th grade Mathcounts meets Tuesdays at lunch with Mrs. Burdette,  6th grade Mathcounts meets at lunch Tuesdays with Ms. Daien. Meeting are once a week at the beginning of the season, and become more frequent as competition time approaches. The Mathcounts website has further information.

Math Strategies: This is a support class which is designed to increase confidence in mathematics. Students are pre-taught math concepts before learning these skills in their regular math class. We also work on strengthening basic facts. This is a smaller class which allows for more individualized attention.

National Junior Honor Society: NJHS serves to honor those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of Scholarship, Leadership, Service, Character, and Citizenship. Chapter membership not only recognizes students for their accomplishments, but challenges them to develop further through active involvement in school activities and community service. Students grow in leadership skills through individual community service hours and and group service events. Check out our NJHS website for application information, the event calendar & individual service opportunities. 

Sixth Grade Camp:  The “Camp Experience” is an extension of student classroom experiences and one that Pioneer administrators and staff find to be truly valuable. For four days and three nights, campers will engage in activities that heighten their environmental awareness and stimulate their personal growth, cultural enrichment, and ability to work within a team. Students will learn to apply, firsthand, the concepts of life sciences that are taught further in the school year. While at camp, students will have a true outdoors experience as they work, play, and eat together. Website: https://sites.google.com/pccsk12.com/pioneer6thgradecamp/home
