Tour Pittsburgh Phillips K-5 on South Side

Pittsburgh Phillips K-5 invites parents and community members for a tour of the elementary school, located at 1901 Sarah Street, on Wednesday, October 14th at 6:00 p.m. This event is a great opportunity to learn more about the school¹s students, programs, and achievements.

"Whether their child is starting Kindergarten next year or in future years, we hope that parents and families will stop by to learn more about our school," said Mr. Rodney Necciai, Principal, Pittsburgh Phillips K-5. He added, "We are also eager to share information about the Pittsburgh Promise and what we are doing as a school to provide the necessary "Pathways to the Promise" steps that we are taking so that all of our kids have the right foundation from which to someday take advantage of this unique opportunity." (The Pittsburgh Promise is now in place to help our students to "Dream Big and Work Hard" by providing scholarship monies for post-secondary education that is available to all of our students, regardless of income.)

During the event, guests will tour the school and learn about the curriculum, including the Spanish language emphasis of the school. Guests will have an opportunity to ask questions of Mr. Necciai and several parents of students who currently attend the school.
