In June 2019, the district finalized the purchase of the facility that became Pioneer Elementary from the Boys & Girls Club of South Puget Sound. Minor tenant improvements were made during the summer of 2019 and the facility opened as a district-owned site in August 2019. For the 2019-2020 school year, four 5th grade classrooms from Discovery Elementary and four preschool classrooms were housed in the building.

An approximate 37,000 sq. ft addition was made to the building and existing interior space was modified to create a 28 classroom, full-size elementary school.

The vision of Pioneer Elementary could not have happened without the dedication and dreaming of all stakeholders. We are grateful to each of you who helped us get to where we are today. We can't wait until our community can see the final product!
