The Piedmont Leo Club was busy serving in the local community during the holiday season. Members rallied within the community beginning with a joint effort with the Unionville Lions Club at their annual Turkey Shoot. Piedmont's Leo Club members helped set up the venue and maintained fresh targets throughout the annual event that raised funds to benefit the Unionville community. With the funds raised from the Turkey Shoot, the Leos assisted the Unionville Lions Club with adopting Christmas angels at New Salem Elementary School by participating in a Christmas shopping spree to provide a special Christmas morning for all. The Piedmont Leos also independently provided a special Christmas for our own high school Piedmont families.
Students in Mrs. Sizemore's class have been working hard on a crayon upcycling project that will spread holiday cheer to a local elementary class. The project involved the students working collaboratively to gather old crayons from Piedmont classrooms and then upcycle them to design fun holiday designs. The holiday crayons will now be shared with the Exceptional Children's Program at Unionville Elementary. Piedmont is super proud of the collaboration and teamwork that this project fostered as the holiday crayons will be a festive and fun addition to the Unionville EC program.

Congressman Dan Bishop spoke to Civics students at Piedmont and shared his experiences in politics and offered advice for students on how to better understand current political events in our country. Bishop noted that students are living in unprecedented times and are having to react to ever-changing circumstances mostly caused by Covid. He further stressed the importance of reading, seeking different viewpoints on issues, and volunteering to learn more about the election process and how the government works. Students participated in a Q & A session after the presentation where they sought his feedback on issues such as the economy, the election, Covid recovery, and the differences between the major political parties.
Good evening Piedmont families. This is Principal Dylan Stamey with several important updates and reminders.
Union County Public School is providing an important update about instructional models. In an effort to plan for second semester classes, teaching schedules and more, UCPS is launching a Virtual Academy Application for middle and high school students. If your child will remain in or transition to the Virtual Academy for the second semester, you must complete the 6-12 Virtual Academy application via Scribbles. The application period will open Friday, Oct. 30 and close Sunday, Nov. 8 at 11:59 p.m.
- If your child will remain in Plan D and continue with our school’s Virtual Academy, you must register on Scribbles.
- If your child will move from Plan B (in-person) to Plan D (Virtual Academy) you must register your child on Scribbles.
- If your child will remain in Plan B and continue in-person learning at school, two days a week, there is no action for your family.
- If your child will move from Plan D (Virtual Academy) to Plan B (in-person), there is no action for your family.
Under Plan B, students are expected to attend school (in person) on their assigned day. Students who do not attend school will be marked absent.
We ask that as you make the best educational decision for your student, please understand that Plan D students’ schedules will reflect options that are available on the virtual platform. Not all classes offered in the face-to-face setting will be able to be offered in the Plan D virtual platform.
To access Scribbles, click here or visit the UCPS homepage and click on the I Want To section.
If you have questions regarding your options for the 2nd semester, please contact your child’s grade-level counselor or administrator.
Senior parents and students, we are already hard at work preparing for graduation and it’s almost time to order diplomas. Diplomas are legal documents and must reflect the name printed on the birth certificate. Senior birth certificates have been reviewed for spelling and punctuation and updates have been made in PowerSchool. Please check your student’s name in PowerSchool, the way it appears will be how it is on the diploma. If you have any questions, you may contact the Counseling Department.
Finally, parents we ask that if your student is not feeling well to please keep them home until they are symptom-free. We want to ensure our school is as safe as possible. If you have any questions about whether your student should attend school due to illness, please do not hesitate to call Piedmont High a7 704-296-3170.
Thank you for your continued support and I look forward to another great week at Piedmont High.
El período de aplicación se abrirá el Viernes 30 de Octubre y se cerrará el Domingo 8 de Noviembre a las 11:59 p.m.
Si su hijo va a permanecer o pasará al Plan B para el aprendizaje presencial en la escuela, dos días a la semana, su familia no deberá tomar ninguna acción.
