Hello Pardners! Come join us for a great time at Ducklahoma
“...where the wind comes sweeping down the plain!”
Most people are familiar with those words, but fewer remember these words in the opening verse,
“...Plenty of room to swing a rope! Plenty of HEART and plenty of HOPE!”
DUCK WEEK embodies this idea of “...plenty of heart and plenty of hope” - it only seems fitting that we would lasso a name like DUCKLAHOMA.
DUCK WEEK is a charity week in which the students of Piedmont Schools lead their entire community in an effort to raise funds for our carefully chosen recipients (to be announced). Along the way, the students will learn what real life generosity looks like and how, working together, they can impact someone’s life in a way they never thought possible. This community effort encourages everyone to give a bit of themselves for the sake of others. During the week of March 8th - March 13th, students of Piedmont will hook their wagons and head off together on this great adventure; finally settling in for a united effort at staking our claim by easing the financial burden of our recipients.
We will be working harder than ever to make sure the recipients receive as much financial help as our efforts can provide. Thanks to generous supporters like you, each year we have been able to make a significant difference in the lives of individuals and their families. It is hard to imagine how difficult life can be when a loved one is sick, not just the brokenness over the suffering, but the stress of financial burdens as well.
Together we can make a life-changing difference for these families!
On March 8th we will kick up our heels and kick off DUCK Week as we embark on an ride that is sure to be FUN. That wind you hear sweeping down the plain is calling each of us to swing a wide rope in the open spaces of our hearts and give hope to those in need. We appreciate your support in years past and know we can count on you again in 2015. Thank you for being a difference maker!
Every year our students carefully select the DUCK Week recipient(s). This year is certainly no different. However, the students are still in the selection process as they are charged with the great task of having to make some important decisions on how to help some very special people in our community. As soon as the decisions are finalized, we will be sending out a message letting our community know who the 2015 recipient(s) will be. Thanks so much for understanding Pardner!

Words from our Student Council
Duck week is all about celebrating our community by giving back. It’s a beautiful thing to get to see people come together and show generosity to those who are in need. The week may be tiring, but every second is so completely worth the effort and energy.

DUCK Week is my favorite week of the year. To see they way our community rallies around our recipients is truly amazing! There is no better town than Piedmont when it comes to taking care of its own people. Everyone genuinely cares and is enthusiastic to help in any way, shape, or form. I love Piedmont and I love DUCK Week.
