Piedmont families are invited to the upcoming sessions with our Spanish partner, Viva El Espanol. The sessions coincide with our Spanish class times, but families (including siblings) are welcome to come at any convenient time, and need not be participating in our program to attend.
This is an opportunity to learn more about our educational philosophy, the process of learning a second language, get to know the Viva el Espanol teachers. Piedmont Language School board members will be on hand to update you on the World Language Review with the school district and discuss how we are working to raise awareness and support for providing all our students (K-12) the best possible language and cultural training.

The Trischool Site Council will meet on Tuesday, October 2nd 3:30 – 5:00 in the Havens Library. Everyone is welcome to join!
One item on the agenda will be a continuation of the world language review. Last year, this included discussions of the benefits of early language learning and the feasibility of a K-5 world language program during the school day.
Please try to attend the meeting or contact PLS board member Amy Weaver who is a Beach site council rep (firstname.lastname@example.org) with your thoughts about world language for our K-5 students.
