Good afternoon Piedmont families,
This is Principal Eley with this week's updates. 8th grade students have an opportunity to apply to join the high school's JROTC program second semester. Students will learn more about this opportunity in Panther Time on Tuesday, November 30th as well as learn how to apply.
On Wednesday, December 1st, we will be pulling students who need additional supports during Panther Time. Students and their homeroom teachers will receive a schedule and we will work to send home letters to families to outline these supports. Please reach out to the school if you have any questions or want more details.
As a reminder, we are looking for peer tutors to join us again this year to work with peers on various class assignments. If your student is interested in serving as a peer tutor, please have him/her complete the brief interest form linked below.
I hope you all have had a wonderful Thanksgiving Break, and we look forward to seeing you tomorrow!
Message from PTO

November 5th was another great “Top Cat” ceremony for students that were chosen for the month of October. The students chosen really enjoyed their recognition time as well as their rewards. We are looking forward to being able to do this again on December 3rd. Those recognized will be students who have been chosen by their teachers based on their encouraging character and for the positive way they stand out to their teachers and staff. Each teacher will select one student from his or her classes and they will be honored at the Top Cat ceremony the first Friday of each month. The students will be provided a breakfast biscuit and a refreshment. Afterwards there will be a drawing where one student from each grade level will be chosen to receive a gift card. We are very proud to honor these students who strive their best to be a “Top Cat”.
We have included a signup below if you would like to help send in items needed for events such as the Top Cat ceremonies and other sponsored PTO events throughout the year. If you are able to help in any way we would greatly appreciate it. You can send the items needed in as soon as you can and have your child drop them off in the office letting the staff know they are for PTO event donations.
The media center staff is still in need of some extra help on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. We have extended the calendar through the end of the school year.
