Good evening. This is Dr. Strickland with the Week in Preview for March 19 – 23. Our March Million Minute Reading Challenge is still well underway. There are basketballs all over the school representing students’ 150 minutes read. Students are going above and beyond to place an emphasis on and spend time reading throughout the month of March. It’s amazing how much we can learn from reading! And … it’s fun! Please encourage your student to continue reading. As a reminder to parents of 6th grade students – the CogAT will be on Wednesday. All 6th grade students need to bring in their computers, chargers, and headphones on Monday so that teachers can prepare for them to have everything they need for the test on Wednesday. Parents, health and reproductive letters were sent out this week. Please sign those and return them to your student's P.E. teacher. We’ve entered the fifth six weeks of the school year – can you believe it? Please also encourage your student to continue their focus on learning every day. It’s going to be a great week at Piedmont Middle School! So proud of our PdMS Panthers!
The high school cross country team will be heading to Appalachian State University for team camp again this summer. We took several incoming freshman with us last year. It was a great opportunity to build team cohesiveness and for the freshman to get to know their teammates. The camp will be from July 22-26. The cost of the camp is $350 plus a $25 transportation fee.
