Mr. Parkins' , Ms. Benfield's and Mr. Reddig's students took over the media center and for three days turned it into a civil rights museum. Sixties protest songs played soflty in the background as students toured the exhibits their classmates built from scratch. Exhibits on topics such as Ralph Ellison's The Invisible Man to the murder of Medgar Evers and Emmitt Till, from Hernandez v. Texas to Swan v. The Board of Education, students learned their power to question and to act.
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!
