My daughter and I had fun yesterday morning at drop-off, donning our Piedmont purple and greeting parents with a Giving Campaign pen and pin to celebrate the official launch of Piedmont’s largest fundraiser for our schools. Please take a look at the individualized letter that you should have received at home yesterday and read below for more information on the campaign. Our schools need our support more than ever. Thank you in advance for your participation and generosity.
Friday marks the beginning of autumn, and there’s no better way to ring in the fall season than Harvest Festival weekend. Put on your walking/running shoes and partake in the FallFest 5K, benefiting the PUSD Wellness Center, on Saturday, September 23, at 8:30 am at the Piedmont Community Hall. To register, go to Piedmont Fall Fest Registration and click on the “Register Now” button. Medals and prizes will be awarded to the top winners in all age categories! If you don’t want to walk, run or stroll, please consider volunteering. Course monitors are needed to keep the race safe. To sign up, please use this link: Volunteer Sign ups for Fall Fest. On Sunday, September 24, enjoy the time-honored tradition of the Harvest Festival from 11:00 am – 3:00 pm in Piedmont Park. Bid on your child’s grade-level scarecrow (thank you scarecrow volunteers!), play carnival games, win a baked good at the Cake Walk, get your face painted, and much, much more, while helping support our elementary schools. See you there!
Our lunchtime activities are starting this week with art on Tuesday and Wednesday, a SERVES community service activity on Thursday, and a science project on Friday. Thank you to Lara Dickinson for organizing and leading the program and to volunteer parents Christina Vo, Katie Gudiksen, and Alissa Welch for running some of the lunch activities. More information on the program will be sent next week.
