Connect Ed - Dec. 13
Good evening. This is Dr. Strickland with some important midweek information. Thursday is going to be a busy day. PTO is sponsoring ROAR from 3:30 – 5:30. For students who are in the 6th grade or have 6th grade siblings, we ask that parents come to pick them up through the regular car-rider line. For students who are in the 7th or 8th grades, we ask that parents come in through the bus lot to pick up their students. Our 7th and 8th grade bands will be performing in the high school auditorium on Thursday at 7:00 p.m. Also on Thursday, North Carolina School Report Cards will be sent home with all students. North Carolina’s school report cards are an important resource for parents, educators, state leaders, and others, providing information about school- and district-level data in a number of areas including student performance and academic growth.
For the rest of the week, Student Council is collecting items for the Christmas Bureau. They are in great need of new toys, gifts, and clothing for children through 10 years of age. Please make sure that you are checking our website for important information.
There are now announcements regarding Credit by Demonstrated Mastery and PSAT information posted. If you have additional questions about CDM or PSAT, please contact a Piedmont Middle School Counselor.
Lastly, the school will be closed for the winter break Monday, December 18th through Monday, January 1st. The school will re-open on Tuesday, January 2nd. From the entire staff at PdMS, we want to wish you and your family a wonderful, relaxing, and safe winter break!
This is Dr. Strickland with the Week in Preview for December 11 – 15. There are a lot of activities going on at Piedmont Middle School this week! Important to remember, though, that your students’ learning is always most valuable and most important! Monday morning, we will be celebrating our Spelling Bee. Tuesday, we have a home wrestling match, a basketball game away, and our PTO is sponsoring Tissue Tuesday! We surely would appreciate having your students bring in boxes of tissue on Tuesday! Thursday is a big day with our next ROAR event, the blood drive, our basketball teams playing at Cuthbertson, and our 7th and 8th grade band concerts. The band concerts will be at 7:00 pm in the high school auditorium and the band students would greatly appreciate your support! Friday afternoon, our students who participated in Invest in a Panther at a minimum of $60 will have the opportunity to participate in the Big Event! Our offices will be closed December 18th through January 1st. As I always tell our students, those two weeks will be an excellent time to READ!! We hope you have a restful holiday and we look forward to seeing all of our students back on January 2nd.
