As I walk by our students' collaborative reproductions of some of the world's most famous works of art, I am struck by the metaphor: That's how we are. Each one of us contributes a piece of what we do well and in doing so we create something more magnificent than any of us could do alone.
Look at any of these squares alone and you have a pretty good piece of middle school art, but put them together and it is breathtaking.
Any of us alone are pretty good, pretty darn good usually, but put us together and we are what makes Piedmont magical.
Here is Piedmont Alum ad my former seventh grade student Lia Beresford searching for herself in her 8th grade class photo hanging in our hallway. Why do 30 year olds come back to visit us twenty years later? Because of the magic we make by bringing the best of what we are every day to these students. Thank you for using your strengths to make us all we are. There is nowhere else like us and each one of us makes this school what it is.
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!
