Parent Connection and Meetings

On September 2, 2014 Piedmont Hills held our first Parent meeting. It was a huge success. I would like to thank all the parents who came out and supported our school and the students. I am looking forward to seeing an even greater turn out at our next meeting. Our next First Tuesday meeting will be on October 7, 2014. I look forward to seeing you all there.

At the district office we have our African American Student Advocate meetings. This gives our African American parents a chance to sit and talk with the Superintendent Chris D. Funk and Juan Cruz, the  Associate Superintendent of Educational Services. The next meeting will be held September 11, 2014 at the District Office beginning at 6:00 pm.

I invite you all to please take this opportunity to have your voices heard and help create a new innovative global society for our students.
