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.
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!
