Building Pride/Building Character with PPS Students
Thanks to contributions from 11 corporations through the State’s Educational Improvement Tax Credit Program (EITC), PHLF is involving 12 Pittsburgh Public Schools in its “Building Pride/Building Character” program of field trips and book-publishing projects this January through June.
Fourth-grade students from Pittsburgh Dilworth toured their school and neighborhood in February and will contribute their ideas and artwork to a book tentatively titled, Exploring Places: Connecting to the Real World.
Fifth-grade students from Pittsburgh Phillips, Banksville, and Colfax toured Carnegie Mellon University in January and February and developed their skills as explorers, artists, and poets.
Below is a photo gallery highlighting the tour of the neighborhood and Carnegie Mellon University.
