Piedmont PTSA inadvertently started an email beef when they requested staff pet photos for an upcoming book fair display.
Mr Reddig set off the “chain of madness” and soon each staff member was trying to prove that their pet was the cutest of all.
Which one truly is the cutest pet? You’ll have to decide for yourself.
Be sure to visit the book fair to find out which Pirate pet belongs to your teacher!
Whether attending a wedding in formal attire or casually doing chores at home, our Pirate pets are always helpful and good-looking, as the above dogs illustrate!
The addition of cute props is making this a tough decision!
(Some staff tried to sneak their children and boyfriends into the contest)
Cats V Dogs: it’s too hard to choose! (maybe go with the fish?)
Pirate parents are a sporty bunch so like to put their pets in jerseys as you see below.
Ms Winegardner students had the privilege of working with a UNC Charlotte clarinet professor and a guest composer today. Students learn how to use the garage band app on an iPad to create modern radio dramas.
The 8th grade students recorded the script and design their own sound effects using the latest filters and technologies. Thank you so much to Mrs. Winegardner into the UNC Charlotte out reach for helping the students have this unique musical creative experience!

6th Grade Hosts Sci Fi Author Talk
As you know from this blog, Piedmont IB was the first school in North Carolina to receive the state's Global Ready designation.
Now we're going intergalactic.
10 days after hosting our first International Night, the 6th grade will go out of this world. The students are receiving a visit from Scott Reintgen, author of Nxyia.
Nyxia is a thriller about 10 teens who launch into space. The characters come from a wide range of countries and backgrounds and it is an accessible read that students can feel comfortable diving into. During the presentation, students will get a chance to think about what they want to do with their lives and get a glimpse into what it takes to make a dream come true
Students who purchase a book can have it signed if they bring it to the talk.
Piedmont International Baccalaureate hosts our first International Night on April 20th at 4:45. I'll update this post with more photos after the event but right now Senora Lugo and the WL teachers are working hard to prepare. This intro video featuers students at Piedmont speaking just a few of the languages in our school as part of the many cultures that make up the Piedmont family! Enjoy!

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!
