Talent Show: Each spring, Piedmont Middle School holds its very popular and exciting Talent Show to showcase the impressive talents of its students.  The wide variety of performances includes everything from magic acts to modern dance to classical violin and flute.  All students are invited to perform in the show.  Auditions are held just to double-check that performances are appropriate for school.  Students attend their grade-level show at an in-school assembly, and then the entire show is held in the evening, and all students and parents are invited to attend. The Talent Show is a very popular and exciting event at PMS.
