Soldier Letters

The Y-Club at Piedmont Academy collected handwritten letters for the troops to open on Thanksgiving as a part of The Bert Show’s Big Thank You. Every year, the Bert Show, a radio show out of Atlanta, collects handwritten thank you letters for every single service member that is deployed to open on Thanksgiving. These letters hugely impact the morale of our troops who are unable to be home with their families for the holidays. This year, 4 students in second grade received a letter back. The soldier told the students about his career in the Navy and about his specific job in Afghanistan. He told them about his family and answered some questions. Most importantly, the students were thanked for the friendly letters that made their time away from home easier. Students who received letters in Tara Pope's second grade classroom included Dylan Pitts, Savannah Stanton, Dalton Wallace, and Emily McEwen

Favorite Reading Series and Book Reports

I have created a form for your son/daughter to complete to let me know about what they would like to read and what kind of book projects they would like to do on the books. It's very short and will only take a minute of your time!
