Purpose: To give students opportunities to develop leadership skills by organizing and carrying out school activities and community projects.
Student council members plan events that contribute to school spirit and community welfare. The student council serves as the voice of the student body by sharing ideas, interests, and concerns with the school-wide community.
Students learn about all of the aspects of theater by reading through a variety of scripts. Students gain confidence through drama games and activities. Students have the opportunity to audition for acting and stage parts. Our end goal is to put on a student-led show in front of an audience of family members and/or students!
We are pleased to use Drama Notebook for incredible scripts in our programs.
Honor Choir is Piedmont Intermediate's foremost choral group. Our primary focus is to provide students with an opportunity to sing in two and three-part harmony while learning basic vocal techniques. Students meet before school two mornings a week. Honor Choir performs concerts and shares patriotic music as part of the Veterans Day Assembly.
Book Club members can join based upon the book we are reading. Not every book is for everybody, so any student wanting to join a book club can do so on a book-to-book basis. Book Club meets once a week during the first 5th and 6th-grade lunch in the library. Students are given a reading schedule at the beginning of book club, and the expectation is that students have read the assigned pages before the meeting so we can discuss the pages read. At the end of the book, we will have a treat day and, hopefully, Zoom with the author if he or she agrees.
Craft Club meets every eight weeks during lunch in the library. During Craft Club, we create easy, handmade crafts as a seasonally specific group. Mrs. Rhoades walks students through every step of completing the craft. Students can take their creations home at the end of the meeting. Every student is welcome in the Craft Club, and there is no signup.
