Piedmont Presents Earth Day: Protect Your Shelter

In honor of Earth Day, Piedmont Middle’s faculty and staff created an exhibit of artwork made from up-cycled/recycled materials. These works of art were made in conjunction with the “Give Me Shelter” Art in Education staff development workshops. Using 95% re-used, recycled, or re-purposed salvaged/found materials and treating it as quality art materials, teachers had one month to create their art work.

The exhibition’s goal is to stimulate environmental awareness, encourage conservation, and promote new ways of thinking about art, sustainability, and the environment.

Piedmont Alum Shares Knowledge of Japan

This was just one of the interesting tidbits that Tori Fuchs, Piedmont Middle School Alum and daughter of Mrs. Gwinn, came and shared with sixth grade Social Studies classes. Tori is currently a Senior at University of North Carolina Greensboro where she is double majoring in Asian Culture and Graphic Design. She was able to attend a school in Japan during a study abroad opportunity where she increased her knowledge of Japanese History and Culture. She then shared that knowledge with us.
