The results are in. We are excited and humbled that the Pierz Schools community voted in favor of the bond referendum that was on Tuesday's ballot. We are eternally grateful to you for this affirmation of our needs. Students in our district will benefit from these facility investments for generations. Thank you for your support.
The unofficial results are below:
993 – Yes
We understand that not everyone voted Yes on the referendum. While there is disagreement on how to manage our facilities, we believe there is common ground in supporting the needs of our children. We will build on that common ground to ensure that we all move forward together.
Continue to follow us on our Facebook page and the district website at www.pierz.k12.mn.us for updates on next steps in facilities planning. We will be engaging staff, parents and other stakeholders in the design process for the new classrooms, kitchen and band room. We value your input and welcome any comments you might have. Feel free to contact Superintendent George Weber at 320-468- 6458 or firstname.lastname@example.org, or any member of the school board .

Robotics, Competitive Speech, Drama Club, Choir, Band, Business Professionals of America, Future Farmers of America, Art Club, Athletics, Peer Helpers, oh my! All these activities and more are providing our students with incredible experiences and skills that will serve them well into their futures.
From Dave Rocheleau, Activities Director for the district: “There is no question that education-based activities greatly enhances student achievement. High school and elementary after-school activities are intended to enrich a child's education. Our activities at Pierz Schools are definitely an extension of the school day! Our fields, courts and hands-on activities are some of the most important classrooms we have for our children. In these experiences, our students are learning time management, teamwork, resiliency, assertiveness, perseverance, discipline, hard work, self-control...the list goes on and on.”
We are proud of our past accomplishments and even more importantly, we are dedicated to pushing ourselves to keep building upon our past successes to make us one of the best schools in the state. Pioneer Pride!
