Good evening, Piedmont families! This is Dr. Strickland with the Week in Preview for October 22 – 26. What a great week we had last week with Invest in a Panther ending and The Book Fair! This week promises to be just as wonderful, if not more. Tuesday will be an Early Release Day. We'll dismiss all students at 12:15. We’ll be celebrating Unity Day and Red Ribbon Week beginning this Wednesday. Wednesday we encourage everyone to wear ORANGE. Thursday, wear plaid as we’re all PLAID TO BE DRUG FREE! Friday, wear your Piedmont gear as we’re PROUD TO BE DRUG FREE! We’ll continue Red Ribbon Week through the middle of next week. Also, as we celebrate Unity Day which is all about being kind to one another, I wanted to ask for your help. We found out this week that the Union County Community Shelter announced that their pantry was empty. Well, we’ve decided that it’s not kind to know that your neighbor is hungry and not do something about it. So, we’ll be collecting food this week to help them out. If you are able, please send in nonperishable food items this week. Mrs. Vitulli will be collecting those in her room. Let’s see how full their pantry is after Piedmont Middle School does our part!
Oct. 29th, 30th, 31st, and Nov. 1st
Can be purchased at Target, WalMart, Amazon, and Boxed
Please fill out this form if you would like to participate in the first Piedmont Middle Community Band. This will be a no cost opportunity for you to play your instrument again! We will be meeting Tuesdays and Thursdays in the middle school band room from 7am- 7:45am beginning October 30, 2018. We will perform on the 7th and 8th grade band concert December 13, 2018 at 7pm (location TBD). If you play a non-traditional band instrument (violin, guitar, bass etc) we will try our best to include you as well. For all members interested in participating: you will need your own instrument (we can help with the big ones- tuba, baritone, french horn) and you will need to be an approved UCPS volunteer. If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Vitulli (firstname.lastname@example.org)
