Brian Elias
Piner Freshman, Brian Elias, at the annual Martin Luther King Jr. Speech Contest. He won second place in his division and did Piner very proud!

Piner's Teydid Rojas is the Physical Education Student of the Month for January. Teydid is a leader and great encourager. She supports all students as well as she actively participates in the freshmen curriculum and activities. Teydid is certainly an example of what a student of the month represents as seen in her amazing character qualities and her willingness to actively engage with her best effort in 9th grade P.E. It is a great privilege to have Teydid as a student.

Season of Giving-Toy Drive
The Season of Giving is here! Beginning next week please show some love to our community by donating a toy of a $5-$10 value to the Monroe Toy Drive. Collection boxes will be set up in each 4th period classroom. We need toys for children ages 4-8, as well as board games and art supplies for fourth, fifth, and sixth grade classes. The fourth period class that donates the most toys will earn a pizza party hosted by ASB! Toys collected until Friday, December 8.

2016 SCL Finals
On Saturday the Cross Country team competed at SCL Finals at Spring Lake. The Varsity Boys, Varsity Girls and JV Girls ended their season in 2nd place after some very close races. The JV Boy ended their season undefeated with a first place win!

This week 350 Piner students started a campus wide thematic study revolving around the book "The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks" by Rebecca Skloot. Integrated loosely across 4 disciplines- English, Social Science, Biology and Health Science & Biotechnology- students came together for the launch presentation where teachers introduced the topics and activities they will cover as well as their reasoning for choosing the book. This story of Henrietta Lacks and her cells, taken without consent, the revolutionary impact on medical research and the insight into cultural, racial and scientific issues of the time make this book a good fit for our team of teachers! (Ms. Benson, Ms. Barcelon, Mr. Converse, Ms.Coster, Ms. Langhals, Ms. Lecus, Mr. Mantoani, Dr. Marchbanks, Mr. Slaten Ms. Stevens and Ms. Walls !) Students will engage in extracting their own DNA and discuss historical and social implications for "who owns your cells?". They will research a disease and its impact on world history as well as investigate scientific studies from the past such as the Tuskegee syphilis study, that breached moral boundaries and lead to informed consent and required scientific ethics for all clinical trials. Cell division and cancer will be studied in Biology with a group event titled Cancer Awareness Day slated for November 18th.

Pedro Sosa
Piner's Pedro Sosa is the Physical Education Student of the Month for October. In the elective class of weight lifting, Pedro is the first to start working out and the last. He has set an example for the younger students of what it means to work out. He has set a standard for all in the class to follow with his work ethic. Because of this, Pedro is the PE student of the month. Congratulation to Pedro Sosa from the PE Department.
