Connect Ed - November 17
Good afternoon Piedmont Families,
This is Principal Eley calling with the week’s announcements. First of all, we have a great deal to celebrate this past week and I would love to give some shout outs. First, our girls’ basketball team won Tuesday night against Cuthbertson. Thursday, our boys’ team won their away game against Marvin Ridge. We are so proud of both teams and how hard they are working this year. Our wrestling team also took a big win Thursday night in their match against Parkwood. Friday, we celebrated the induction of nearly 100 8th grade students into Piedmont’s chapter of the Jr. Beta Club. Saturday, our cheerleaders won 1st place at the Marvin Ridge cheer competition and our Robotics team took home a 2nd and 4th place finish out of 32 teams at the Union County Fall Robotics’ Classic. We are so proud of all our Piedmont Panthers. Keep up the hard work!
Now for this week’s announcements. The next 8th grade DC trip payment is due Monday, November 18th. Tuesday, we will have a home basketball game and Thursday we will have a home wrestling match. Please come out to support our teams. Friday, we will be welcoming Piedmont High School, Union County Early College, CATA, and Monroe Health Academy to Piedmont to talk to our 8th graders about their programs.

On each due date, money will be taken until the end of the school day and will NOT be accepted afterwards.

This is not the exact itinerary for this year’s trip but it will give you an idea of what you will be doing while in DC.
