Connect Ed - Jan 13
Good evening, Piedmont families. This is Dr. Strickland with the Week in Preview for January 14 – 18. On Monday morning, every student will be participating in the Social Studies or Science North Carolina Final Exam. Students delivered their computers to their testing locations Friday afternoon; however, we are still needing some of our students to bring in their chargers and/or computers. Please talk with your student to make sure that they have either turned it in or have it with them for Monday morning.
On Tuesday, we are taking advantage of some time after the exams to get students acquainted with their second-semester teachers. This is an excellent opportunity for them to meet their teachers, learn their expectations, and be introduced to new content material.
We have a basketball game at home on Tuesday. All students who would like to attend will stay in their homerooms until they’re dismissed to go to the gym. Please have all rides at school by 6:30 pm to pick students up after the games.
We are looking forward to another great week at Piedmont Middle School where Every Minute Matters.
