Pittsburgh Public School’s official back to school event, #PittsburghForPPS, returns and we are celebrating TEN years! PPS has teamed up with some great partners to host this wonderful event and we want PPS families, like yours, to join us.
Every year, we welcome thousands of families to an event designed to equip families with the resources necessary to achieve a healthy start to the 2022-2023 school year. Presented by PNC, #PittsburghForPPS is open to all current Pittsburgh Public School students and will take place in the North Shore at Gold Lot 1 (W. General Robinson Street) and Acrisure Stadium on Monday, August 22, 2022, from 11 AM - 3 PM.
Families can participate in the event in THREE ways:
- DRIVE THROUGH: Family can drive through Gold Lot 1A to pick up stuffed bookbags, food, masks, hand sanitizer, books, and more!
- IN-PERSON: Pre-registration is required. Families who would like to receive a free haircut, hairstyle, and/or manicure are invited to park and visit the FedEx Great Hall at Acrisure Stadium for those amenities. Families can pick up stuffed bookbags, food, masks, hand sanitizer, books after hair and nail care services. REGISTER HERE
- BUS STOP DROP OFFS: Beginning at 12 PM Noon, families can visit one of 15 bus stops across the city to pick up stuffed book bags while supplies last.
