Students in the after-school Writer’s Club at Pittsburgh Beechwood created personal coats of arms out of stained glass, thanks to the help of artist Rona Moody. In addition, students from five Pittsburgh Public Schools––Phillips, Roosevelt, Colfax, Beechwood, and Fulton––either have or will soon be sketching Pittsburgh details, composing poetry, and publishing booklets of their work.
From January to June 2012, PHLF is involving 13 Pittsburgh Public Schools and more than 650 students in grades three through five in social studies and art activities, field trips, and trolley tours as part of its “Building Pride/Building Character” educational program.
These enrichment programs––and many more that are scheduled––are possible because of the contributions PHLF received in the fall of 2011 through the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania’s Educational Improvement Tax Credit Program.
We thank Huntington Bank, PNC Bank, BNY Mellon, ESB Bank, Allegheny Technologies Incorporated, Frank B. Fuhrer Wholesale Company, Bridges & Company, UPMC, and Hefren-Tillotson for their generous support.
