Fall 2012

It is with great pride that I welcome you to Pioneer Valley High School. We are home to over 2600 students in grades nine through twelve and nearly 200 staff members who are dedicated to providing the best education possible by offering high quality academic and extra-curricular programs.

High school is an exciting time, and we want all students to make positive choices and have meaningful experiences. We encourage everyone to focus on academics and get involved in activities such as athletics, the visual and performing arts, and clubs and organizations.

As Pioneer Valley enters its ninth academic year of education, we continually ask for partnership from students, parents and community members. We all know that student success comes from working together, and the Pioneer Valley Panthers invite you to be a part of our team.

We are very proud of our new website. With a wealth of information about programs, events and opportunities at PVHS, it is updated daily and will be the primary method of communication. Please visit the site at 

I know everyone is excited about the 2012-2013 school year, and I look forward to sharing it with you. It is my hope that the students of Pioneer Valley always represent themselves well, at school and in the community. The traits of a true panther, as outlined on page five, are expected daily to demonstrate our school pride. Thank you for being a part of the Panther Family.

Yours in education,

Mrs. Herrera
