For the third year in a row, Piedmont hallways have been taken over by flashmobs, furry critters, and student creations as our sixth graders engaged in a choice-driven genius-hour project called "Love of Learning."
Students had a class period over the quarter to explore a topic of interest to them in greater detail and then to share their new knowledge and skills as well as learn from others at the annual LOL showcase.

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.
