The International Club hosted a pulsera sale again this year to raise money for the Pulsera Project in Nicaragua. Pulsera means "bracelet" in Spanish, and students purchased a unique pulsera for $5 to support this endeavor. The second year of the fundraiser set a school record by raising $1815 for the Pulsera Project, of which 100% of the money raised goes straight to the project.
Mrs. Medford's art students were afforded the opportunity to complete the Lanterns Around The World project after receiving a grant from the Union County Education Foundation. The viewer will learn of the artist’s country or subject of choice, in addition to the historical use of the lantern. The lanterns are currently on display at Unionville Elementary and will return to Piedmont High for the Student Artist Showcase that is opened to the public on May 24th from 4:00 – 5:30 pm.
On May 7, students in Tracy Price’s advanced art classes were recognized during an art dedication ceremony at the new Health and Human Services Department in Monroe. When she was approached about the project, she stated that, "I was very honored because I knew that the Health and Human Services Department knew that Piedmont High School’s art program was very capable and talented."
