On Friday, students at Piedmont IB and Concord Middle Schools worked together on a global aid project. Students spent hours setting up a proper food packing site according to regulations, then, after a dinner break in which a portion of the money they spent went to fund more suppies for needy families, the students spent hours again packing food to send to Central and South America.
"Feed My Starving Children" partnered with the restaurant chain Tacos 4 Life to host a Mobile Pak event. The Mobile Pak event uses community volunteers to package rice, soy, vegetables and vitamin powder to send to Central and South American aid organizations that help feed kids and families.
Thanks to Piedmont 7th grade science teacher Mr. Anderson for facilitating the event. He says it was a good deed and also a learning experience for the students, "Students participating in the event and completing subsequent reflections helps students realize that what they do locally, can make a difference in the world... all while doing something fun."
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!
