What a Beautiful Day for a Festival!
On September 26th, our school participated in Heidelberg’s Oktoberfest! We celebrated Autumn by having a Pumpkin Ring Toss game! The weather was wonderful and the company was even better!
Our school was overflowing with love on September 22nd and 23rd as we celebrated our Annual Grandparents Night! Everyone had fun working together to decorate picture frames, eat some delicious food and then work it off during the dance contest! Congratulations to all of the winners and runners – up for your artistic talents!
Young Scholars went to Cocina Mendoza for lunch and we had a great time! The students experienced very authentic Mexican meals and had to order everything in Spanish. The owners were so friendly, they gave us free churros for dessert and they were muy deliciosos!
Wednesday, September 23, 2015 First and Second grade scholars celebrated the first day of fall with a trip to Trax Farm! Students learned about the farm with a fall tour of the produce cleaner, bee hives, and tractor ride. We tasted apple cider and fresh picked apples. Each student also picked a pumpkin to take home!
On September 28th, Charis Alton (Nyla, K) brought a future Young Scholar, Kevin, with her. We discussed bringing our school into the community by advertising for and possibly sponsoring a local youth football league. Then, to finish out the month, we had breakfast with not only 1 but 2 families! Amanda Staub and Thomas Jones (Lilly, 3rd grade) and Dionna Rojas Orta (Felipe, 5th grade and Gabriel, 2nd Grade) spent some time together with us.
On Wednesday, September 16th, YSWPCS welcomed Mike Harvey from WTAE and “Fantastic” Zack from the Carnegie Science Center! Mike talked about different weather patterns that affect us in Pittsburgh and different weather patterns that occur around the country.
