“We moved to Piedmont for the schools. We stayed for the community.”
We’ve heard this refrain at school pickup, at parties, and in the coffee line at Mulberry’s. It’s true for so many of us.
Piedmont’s extraordinary schools not only attract families looking for an exceptional education, they also bring together those interested in building and maintaining a place where everyone belongs. The schools, the heart of our community, are why we moved here.
We are all too aware that a great public school education isn’t free. Each year expenses go up while funding from the government, and funds from the very generous parcel taxes, remain about the same. Next year, the gap between what our schools receive from government and parcel taxes, and what Piedmont spends on education, is $2,132 per student. A contribution to the Giving Campaign will help fund teachers and aides, librarians, arts, music, honors and AP courses, wellness, and more. The Giving Campaign funds the things that make Piedmont schools special.
Join us on September 19th as we launch this year’s Giving Campaign. Make a donation that is meaningful to your family. Help maintain the teachers, staff and programs that mean so much to our kids.
