A STEAM Academy
Students and Staff at Five Facilities to Transition to Synchronous Remote Learning Due to Special Election Tuesday, September 19th
PITTSBURGH, September 14, 2023 – Students and staff at five facilities – Pittsburgh Schiller 6-8, Pittsburgh Spring Garden Early Childhood Center, Pittsburgh Spring Hill K-5, Pittsburgh Sunnyside PreK-8, and Pittsburgh Woolslair PreK-5 - will transition to synchronous learning, September 19.
After the pandemic, it was difficult to re-build a strong school-to-home community. Pittsburgh Woolslair parent Erin Childs took that as a challenge. With the support of teachers and administrators, she re-started the Woolslair PTO and began a host of activities, including family social nights that feature crafts, movies, bingo and more.
