We are thankful! The YSWPCS staff got together at the Brentwood Firehall to celebrate Thanksgiving! We enjoyed a delicious buffet from Getaway Catering and a potluck dessert bar. It was a wonderful way to start the long holiday break by celebrating with our school family!
On November 23rd, 2016, YSWPCS had its first trimester award ceremony for the year. Almost every student received an award. Honor Roll was given to students with all Ss for Kindergarten and all As and Bs for 1st through 8th grade. High Honor Roll was given to students with all Os and Ss for Kindergarten and all As for 1st through 8th grade.
On Saturday, November 19th, YSWPCS hosted another successful Barnes and Noble Day at the South Hills Village location. We had several student performances, including our K-1 and 2-5 cheerleading squads, K-8 Spanish signing, K-8 Turkish singing, and K-8 chorus and band performances. We enjoyed storytelling from Barnes and Noble and YSWPC staff members. Students were able to make a holiday craft in the Children’s section of the store, as well as complete a store-wide scavenger hunt for a homework pass! Students also had the chance to enter a book raffle for four brand- new books. We had a wonderful turnout and were so thankful for the store purchases that helped us reach our fundraising goal.
Veterans day is a celebration to honor America’s veterans for their patriotism, love of country, and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good. During this time we welcomed veteran’s to the school for an assembly and to share stories and memorabilia with the students at Young Scholars of Western Pennsylvania. Together we say thank you to our Veteran’s for our freedom.
We had our first YSWPCS Fall Festival on October 28, 2016, which was a great success. We had request donations from varies business and some from our parents at the school, who were kind enough to donate. 210 people came for the event! We had face painters, crafts, games, pictures with Our Scarecrow Ms. Tina and photographer Kim, potluck, and a huge raffle. On behalf of the PTO Officers, we appreciate everyone that made food, cut out crafts and helped make this a successful event. Please join us for our first ever winter family bingo night in December, more details to come.
