Rotary Adopts Carnegie Elementary
The Carnegie-Collier Rotary distributed Power Tools Homework Kits to all students of Carnegie Elementary on Thursday, December 8 during a special presentation. The kits included basic school supplies of scissors, glue, pencils, crayons and more. They were donated to over 400 students in the school in cooperation with the Pittsburgh-based organization, The Education Partnership.
The afternoon presentation in the elementary auditorium included the introduction of Justin Brown, executive director for the Education Partnership, who encouraged students to work hard, be kind and take chances.
Representatives from the Carnegie-Collier Rotary also spoke with students and Clifford the Big Red Dog was on hand to offer a "high five."
In addition, Carnegie teachers will be gifted with classroom supplies.
