Pioneer Middle's First LEGO League team meets on Mondays after school until 5:00pm. This activity requires a little more dedication that a regular club because the team members are preparing for a competition. First Lego League team members are preparing for a robotics competition, a science presentation offering solutions to problems involving trash removal, and a core values task where students demonstrate their ability to work as a team.

Perhaps the most highly-anticipated event for the beginning of the year was the return of Maker Club on Wednesdays. Even on the first day of school, students were asking when Maker Club would begin! We had our biggest group for Maker Club yet and continue to add new members as the weeks go along. We even added a new advisor, Ms. McKenzie, to our club as well.

Fridays are home to two different library clubs. Newspaper Club will continue to meet on Fridays and students are already hard at work on articles and comics. At our first meeting of Newspaper Club, students brainstormed different things they would like to see within the newspaper. Our goal is to publish a newspaper each quarter.
