Field trips are essential learning experiences. If a school says "we don't have time" they don't understand how students grow Field trips benefit the whole child and are inherently interdisciplinary and offer a chance to see the ways academic subjects fit in to real life. Piedmont 6th, 7th and 8th graders are always travelling to learn, even if its just a walk uptown to a museum, park or business in our neighborhood. We take advantage of all the resources in our city including the colleges and our partner the Hilton Center City. The big class trips are to Atlanta for 6th grade, Washington, DC for 7th grade, and the Outer Banks for 8th grade.
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!
