    A.R. Party!!!!! 

    By: Annete

    The very first time we had came here we had an Awesome A.R party. It had 2 Wii’s to play with. With the Wii we were playing a game called  super Mario Kart Race. It was a blast because me and my friend were playing around with these sticker mustache that Ms. Vasquez had gave us  and it was a very fun time. Then they had announced who had won some presents for their A.R goal that they had reached.  Their were all kinds of gifts some were candy’s bags, books, and much more. I almost forgot that they had gave us some delicious mouth watering food. one more thing is there a photo booth that Ms. Vasquez had arranged and everybody had been joining and making funny faces with with mustache and laughing all the time. The photo’s that we had taken are going to be placed on the yearbooks so all the people that had not made their A.R. goal had missed out on all the fun that we had. 

  • Renaissance

    By: Jaden

    Did you attend the fall renaissance dance? If you would like to know about the fall renaissance it was a dance for people who met there A.R goal, had 3.0-4.0 grade point average, or were students of the month. After showing each student everyone went back to class in the 5th period. After lunch the kids who achieved their goals left in the beginning of 6th period right after attendance. The other kids spent all the time in their class while everyone else was dancing and having fun in the Fall Renaissance dance. Hopefully next time you can attend the fall renaissance dance and won’t be left out.

    Have you ever heard about a party to celebrate the ones who worked hard at school, then yes it’s called the Renaissance. Did you know that Pioneer Middle School is the only school that has Renaissance! Renaissances is for the students who studied really hard and have good grades. Many students got recognized for their outstanding work they got something really special. Last Renaissance was a succeed, many students attended and everyone had a great time. There is even a talent show where you can sign up and be in the Renaissance! A lot of students showed their talents by singing, playing a instrument, dancing and more. Plus you get a t-shirt to wear at the Renaissance, so people know that you went isn't that great. Also another Renaissance is coming up! To get in the Renaissance is from IXL, A.R, Student of the Month, G.P.A, Grades and Attitude, so if you meet one of those goals than you are definitely in. We hope to see you there.

    At our recent first semester renaissance, Grades by Pioneer, some of the students had the opportunity to come up with a talent and perform it in front of the students. There was dance teams, cadets, singers, the drum line, and the teacher’s dance performance. As part of the performances we had to practice in between the whole time until renaissances, specific days if you were on a team. When the date was getting closer Mr. Ortega would check up on how we were doing. The day of, we get called up to the multi-purpose room a little earlier so we can practice. We get an opportunity and then renaissance’s people start coming in as well as every one else. Mr. Ortega would call us up to perform in an order as he would like. Mariachi also performed at renaissance.  They sang “Las Mananitas” for our principal, Mr. Valdez. As the students would line up according to there GPA, they would call up a performance and take them back stage to get ready as soon as the curtains opened up. That’s how renaissance worked for the talent show part, then after that they had a dance.

  • Leadership

    by Enedina

    In my 8th grade year I was involved in an elective called leadership. Leadership was fun this year because throughout the year we got to do a lot of fun activities during lunch for students to enjoy. Like for example some of the fun activities that we did involved students getting wet, sticky, grossed out, or eating and that was really fun to watch. Leadership is also fun because you get to participate in lots of other stuff like dances. Dances were done by leadership and decorating dances was fun to because you get to skip class and then have a great time afterwards. Leadership students like me were also in charge of the student store. That means that we would be charging the customer and making sure nothing gets out of the store without being paid for. That was fun because every worker would get a free snack for working and we got to meet new people that we didn't know while we were working too. So I think that the student store was the funnest thing for me to do in leadership throughout the year because that's where me and my friends hung out most of the year.

  • Math

    by Julieta

    The math competition, also known as Math Superbowl, was March 24, 2015 in the Visalia Convention Center. There was two coaches. One was Mr. Brenner and the other one was Mrs. Cates. To get into the competition you have to have good grades in math class which means doing all your work and getting good scores on tests. There were two teams. One was the eighth grade and the other team was seventh graders. There were five students in each team. We had four meetings in Mr. Brenner’s classroom.

    The day we were going to the competition, we had to be at school at 6:30 a.m. and we left at 6:45 a.m.. We stopped at Barlett to pick up the students that were participating in the competition. When we got to Visalia Convention Center, we sat at a table to wait for Mrs. Cates to sign us in and wait until the competition started. There were 3 tests. The first one was individually. The second test was with kids from other schools that we didn’t know. The second one we couldn’t have anyone from our school in our team. The third test was with out team which was the Pioneer MS team. Before we left, we had the award ceremony. There were ribbons and trophies. The ribbons were for each test. Each test had two ribbons, the excellent ribbon and the superior ribbon. The trophies were for the students that did very well in all three tests. Pioneer brought home five ribbons by four seventh graders and one eighth graders. We left the convention center like at 1:40 p.m.. We got to Pioneer like at 2:40 p.m.. We stayed in Mrs. Cates class until the bell rang.

    Math in the 8th grade year has been a great experience. My math class was great because of my math teacher, Mr. Moreno. He makes everything so much easier, and he knows how to explain it. He asks everyone if they know how to do the subject, and if we don't he makes us understand. My grade was very bad in his class, and he helped me raise it to a C. This is why my math class was great.

    My year in math has been impeccable. We have done many things in math class. We have done things like posters. The posters were used to explain math problems that involved tables and graphing. Everyday we went into math class we did IXL, which is used for language arts and math practice, for the first twelve minutes of class. Although my math teacher Mrs. Cates♥ is retiring this year, the students next year will be able to do the same things as us the following year. Another thing we do almost everyday in class was correct homework. We go through all of the problems step by step so we can understand it better. Plus, we do unit tests after every unit to check if we were really paying attention and to check if we really understood what we were doing.


    by Liset

    Math is a great subject. With the experience of math you can do lots of things. Mrs. Cates is a great math teacher. She teaches things like how to solve for X, how to solve big equations, and how to find the slopes of equations. She makes math really fun. I really recommend for kids to listen in class because if you don't you might not know how to do division, multiplication, or how to solve problems. Math is easy, all you have to do is focus, focus, focus while the teachers are explaining it.

    Math this 8th grade year has been a great experience. The teachers make sure you understand the subject before moving on to the next one and they are all very helpful. My math teacher, Mr. Moreno, made me understand math with a whole new perspective. The way he taught it helped make it easier to understand. Math, at first, was confusing. We had to learn so much in such little time that everything just built up. By the middle of the year, or even before that, you'll get the hang of it. My experience with math was creative, it just depends on the perspective you have on it. For previous 8th graders, when it comes to math, you should really pay attention. Theres various types of math subjects and you can easily get confused. 8th grades your last year at Pioneer Middle, you should make the best of it.
