Join Us for #PittsburghForPPS: A Back to School Event

Pittsburgh Public Schools has teamed up with some great partners for our official back to school event, #PittsburghForPPS! This is our ninth consecutive year hosting this 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 2021-2022 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) near Heinz Field on Friday August 20, 2021 from 11 AM - 3 PM.  This event is drive up only.

#PittsburghForPPS is your official back to school event with FREE food, ice cream, Turner's Tea, stuffed book bags, hand sanitizers, cloth masks, and more! 

A very big thank you to this year's partners: PNC, The Pittsburgh Pirates, The Pittsburgh Steelers, The Pittsburgh Penguins, Comcast, City of Pittsburgh, WAMO 107.3, PT Services Group, United Way of South Western PA, and Eat N' Park Hospitality Group! This event would not be possible without their teamwork and contributions.
