Each semester at Pioneer there is a thing called Renaissance. At Renaissance, people get awarded for their hard work throughout the semester. There are a total of 6 different categories a student can qualify for. The 6 categories are 3.0-3.49 GPA, 3.5-4.0 GPA, Increase of .5, Attitude/student of the month, IXL, and AR. A student can earn just one of these and get recognized for it. They get a shirt with the theme of the Renaissance for that semester. The theme is always different each time and never the same. At Renaissance, the students sit down and watch some acts until their category is called. When it is called, they exit the gym and go into the back. When it's time to go in, the students enter a walk around the gym high-fiving people. The students then walk up on to the stage and stand there to be recognized. Lastly, two raffle winners are called up to receive a special bag full of prizes.
Each school year Pioneer Middle School has two Renaissance assemblies. One is at the beginning of the year and the other one is at the end. Whoever makes it to the Renaissance gets a shirt that is deigned by our school. My favorite shirt would have to be the most recent one. The theme for the last Renaissance was "Clash of Grades". Renaissance is always a time to celebrate because it rewards those who try hard, get involved, and do the right thing. The most recent Renaissance is definitely my favorite. The acts were entertaining and the music for the dance was better too. Many people made Renaissance and were invited to the dance afterwards. More then half of the room was dancing. All in all, Renaissance is a great place to be at the end of the semester.
At the end of each semester there is a big thing we do called a Renaissance. The Renaissance is where the teachers present students to the school for whatever category they made it in. The categories are AR, IXL, Student of the Month, 3.0-3.49 GPA, 3.5-4.0 GPA, and increased 5.0 GPA. If you succeeded in any of those categories then you get a shirt with whatever theme it is that semester and you get to be in the Renaissance assembly. At Renaissance you first get seated and then you watch other students preforming acts and at the end watch a movie created by Mr. Percival and his students in Video Production. You also get to go to a dance at the end of the day and just spend time with your friends there.
