Mr. Robert Pappas

Dear Pioneer Middle School Families and Community Members,

It is with a great deal of excitement and pride that I join the Cooper City community as Principal of Pioneer Middle School. Cooper City and Pioneer have a long standing tradition of success and I look forward to carrying on that great tradition for years to come.

From the moment the school board approved me as your new principal I have heard nothing but wonderful things about the staff, students and families of Pioneer Middle School. Each person I meet and talk to shares examples of why Pioneer Middle is a great place for kids. It is evident that Pioneer and the Cooper City community is filled with great people.

It is my goal to continue to ensure that all Pioneer students are provided a high quality education in a safe environment. The education, safety, social-emotional needs and mental health of our children is paramount. Middle school is such an important time in the life of a child and we will work to ensure that we meet the individual needs of each student so that they have a well-rounded, engaging learning experience.

Unfortunately we are currently dealing with very difficult times as a community, a district and a country with the impact of Covid. This pandemic has brought on challenging circumstances that have impacted us in a variety ways. The end of last school year was incredibly difficult to navigate.

Now the opening of the 20-21 school year is a major concern. I assure you that I will communicate with all of you every step of the way as we do everything we can to provide the best learning environment possible for your children.

Remember that the District has opened up another survey for you to provide input on your personal choices for how you prefer school to reopen. For this survey you do need to log in through your child’s single sign on account so that they can track the data for Pioneer Middle specifically.

Ultimately we will get through these challenges together. I look forward to working closely with all of you and meeting you over the coming weeks and months.

Thank you and stay safe.

Robert Pappas, Principal
