  • Welcome
  • Hello!  I would like to personally welcome you to Pioneer Trail Middle School and thank you for visiting our website!  I am very excited to being another school year and have the opportunity to meet so many new Panther students and families.  Our Pioneer Trail Mission Statement explains our belief that Panthers are Always Working for Success!  As a community of learners, we live this daily as evidenced by all that we accomplish.  Everyone in the Pioneer Trail community – students and staff – strive to BE OUR BEST each and every day!  Middle school is a new and fun time in a student’s life that begins to open doors to their future.

    As a parent, I know how crucial parental involvement is to every child’s education!  I encourage open communication and working together for the benefit of your student.  Please feel free to call or email me anytime if you have questions or a great idea to pass along.  Also, there are many opportunities for you to get involved at Pioneer Trail.  Please contact me directly if you are interested!  ecarpenterpt@olatheschools.org

    Together we will have a great year!  As always, remember that “It is GREAT to be a Panther”!
