Computer Class


by Tiana Contreras


A hobby that I enjoy doing in my spare time is drawing/coloring it is easy to do for me and it lets my imagination go wild. Art doesn’t take much materials unless you want to work with the stuff that can blend well. I used Adobe Photoshop to draw this picture. My type of art usually consists of drawing and coloring, and I often like to mix many styles within one picture. To draw I first  imagine the picture in my head (even if it is a bit exaggerated it will work) I imagine the details profoundly and think of how I can draw/color that. Oh I forgot one essential step, I have to listen to music. Anyways, then what I like to do is sketch it out before I actually start working on it. To do this it is best to use a pencil going on the paper lightly. Next I need to start on the beginning lines to get the basis of the picture down (depending on whether I am inking with my assortment of pens or just drawing with pencil i will use different tactics).  And finally after that is done I move on to the details like shading and little things here and there. Most of the time I will do the picture in parts. Now if you are wondering what is so wonderful about all the stuff I listed above, it is wonderful to me because it lets my imagination fly and it is calming. Not to mention when it is finished I get the greatest feeling in the world. Another thing that I love about this hobby is that while I am drawing I can create whatever creature thing I want and it can go from insane all the way to flat out ridiculous. Also drawing and art is a great way for me to express my thoughts, feelings, or even to express myself. Finally the last thing I like about my hobby is that I am able to make something great out of almost nothing. In conclusion, art is my hobby and I am fond of it because I can make a masterpiece out of a writing tool and my imagination.


Video Production




by Viviana Verduzco


This year we have done many projects in Video Production, one of which I have enjoyed very much has been our movie on the ASB Officers. One reason that I enjoyed doing our project on the ASB Officers is that we got to explore Motion. Motion is a program in which we have learned how to create, edit, and export videos. This year we will be using Motion to edit all our videos that will be presented in assemblies, including at Renaissance. Motion also allows us to present what we have learned so far and to give people an idea of what Pioneers Video Production class is capable of. Another reason of which why I enjoy our project on the ASB officers is that we got to use GarageBand. GarageBand is an app that we can create lots of different types of music to include in our videos. We learned how to experiment with different instruments such as brass instruments, pianos, wood winds, drums and many more. We also got to use different vocals that were provided by the app. Also, we learned how the different instruments go together and got to create our own music that was used in our ASB Officers video. To conclude, our video on the ASB Officers was a very interesting project that we did in Video Production.

My name starts with an I & ends with an L

I love peanut m&ms & many of my friends can tell

I love my family & even my younger brother that smells


My best friend is Anissa & sometimes my other friends call her salchicha

She makes me laugh & sometimes says I’m on crack

I hate to see her sad so if you mess with her it will make me mad


I love math & I believe it will lead me to a good path

That’s all I have to say for this class

Thank you for listening, that’s a wrap

Hi, my name is Ariana,

My best fiend is Liliana

I enjoy Math,

I love to laugh


I attended Sante Fe,

But now I go to Pioneer

Sometimes class feels like foever,

But at least I’m with my favorite teacher, Mrs. Fletcher!


I pick up our breakfast daily,

But sometimes I end up failing.

Even though Amaya’s the one who carries it,

I take credit… just a bit!


To conclude I hope you enjoyed my presentation

And hopefully the next one won’t be in translation.


Fatima A

Rap About Me


My Name is Fatima and I’m her to say,

I’m here to talk about me today.


First name Fatima, last name Alarcon

(although I do wish I had my mom’s last name, Arroyo


Born in Porterville, California

Not in France, not in Germany and not in Georgia

I go to Pioneer Middle School, and sometimes the teachers are pretty cruel

Nonstop homework, nonstop work and some people get in trouble if they smirk!

All my classes that can be are advanced, and both of those teachers give me a chance.

My skills are soccer, school and drums

And I’ll be a drum teacher when the time comes.


After I… graduate from Granite, I’ll go to USC

And I won’t stop til I get my doctorate degree!

My mom’s name is Maria, my sister’s name is Aime and I’m the youngest one,

Yeah, I’m the baby!


My mom works at Burton and my sister is in college, yeah, she’s at USC,

Showing off her knowledge.

I love ‘em both with all my heart,

And there’s nothing in this world that can split us apart.


This is rap

This is a rap about Fatima

This is a rap

And it’s about Fatima

Listen up!


Anyways, this is the end of my rap, so if you’ll excuse me..

I’m a going to take a nap!
