2nd and 3rd Grade Students had a fabulous field trip on October 21st. Despite the rain, fun was had by all. Students, teachers and chaperons visited Heinz Field and the Nationality Rooms. The field trip began at the North Shore touring the infamous Heinz Field. Going into Suites, Lockers Rooms, and down onto the field! After lunch, students met at the cathedral of learning to study and tour the nationality rooms. Students visited rooms represented by different countries and got to learn heritage and culture about each place!
