Here are a few things I've run across in the hallways that show me what a great school Piedmont is. Take a peek at all the awesome around this building:
Below are some student work samples along the hallways that are just too good not to post: Good job teachers who made these assignments and students who created them!
Here are a few photos of student active learning throughout Piedmont. I don't remember having so much variety and choice in my day!
That blur you see in the background is a sixth grader trying to make deadline for the "Create an App" contest! The foreground is the balsa wood bridge they re building. Building apps in language class and bridges in math class, when will the authentic learning ever stop? At Piedmont, the answer is never!
Here are a few images from Read Across America Week at Piedmont:
Piedmont Pi-rates always celebrate on 3.14
But this Friday is an extra big day for Piedmont in 2014!
Students and staff walked to school along the Sugar Creek Greenway to raise money for students in Malawi via the #PiedmontWalkforEd Twitter campaign.
After working up an appetite got to measure, calculate andi then eat pie for Pi Day throughout the school. Photos below as they happen!
How can poor Tau Day compete when Pi Day has such great songs for Ms. Delery's and Lamb's classes to sing along to (and snacks to eat!)
Below are the Walk for Ed Photos. Piedmont Students raised thousands of dollars for children in Malawi to go to school.
And we WERE just speaking of chickens at Piedmont in case you forgot already about 7th Grade Science Chicken Wing day! But how could any chicken-based discussion be complete without mentioning the fantastic performance of the Piedmont Odyssey of the Mind team? Where else but Piedmont can you find multicultural chickens (including their cousin from Italy, Chicken Alfredo!) and a farmer with a Michael Jackson glove singing about the joys of a vegetarian dinner theater?
And all to explain why the chicken crossed the road as part of the "Seeing is Believing" long -term problem competition!
We are so proud of Coach Joyce Love and her creative team! These students built their own props, wrote their own scripts, created their own costumes, sang their own songs, choreographed everything and did a fantasic job. They took second place in style at the NCOM Central Region competition and we look forward to what mischeif they create next year.
Celebrating Piedmont : a blog of Happy Happenings
"Celebrating Piedmont" logs only a small fraction of the learning magic the teachers of CMS' Piedmont Middle School, an IB World School. create daily. In that sense, it is authored by all the staff and students of Piedmont. It is curated by Ms. Gurthie who can be reached at the icons above. She'll be happy to brag about Piedmont's teachers and students any chance she gets! Please note this blog has only just begun and we have so much to show off! Come back again soon!
