Here at Pioneer Elementary, we are a tight-knit group of learners, teachers, support staff, friends, families, volunteers, and community partners. Our top priority is our students’ safety and our goal is to provide opportunities that allow our students to grow academically, socially, and emotionally. We partner with our students’ families to ensure our students receive the highest quality education possible. We partner with our local community groups to ensure that our students have as many exciting experiences as we can offer. We understand that raising kids is a team effort so we work with county service providers to ensure that all children’s needs are met. Welcome to the Panther Family!

Meet the Principal

Carmen Glaister

Hello and welcome! My name is Carmen Glaister and I’m the Principal of Pioneer Elementary. This is an amazing school and community and I’m so grateful to be a part of it. I look forward to working with your child, with you, and with your child’s teacher this school year. If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions about our school, feel free to send me an email or give me a call. Our students’ safety is my primary concern, followed closely by their academic and personal growth.

Education is like a three-legged stool: The student, parents, and school are each a leg. If any of those legs isn’t giving its best effort, the stool will fall over. We are all part of your child’s education team and want your child to receive the best education possible. With that being said, if you ever have any concerns about what is happening in your child’s classroom, please contact his or her teacher and request a meeting. If you would like some recommendations on how you can best support your child’s education, please reach out to me.

Here’s to a wonderful school year!


Carmen Glaister
