Congratulations to 4th Grade student, Mason Dick, for coming in 2nd place in the Pittsburgh Pirates Charities Action Math Baseball Virtual Tournament held at the end of May! Our 4th Grade classroom had 3 students place in the top 10!
Since the tournament could not be held in person this year at PNC Park, the students were able to participate and compete against other students in the Pittsburgh/WV area through this online platform. We are so proud of all of the hard work and dedication of our 4th Grade students! Way to go!
