St. Joseph Catholic School in Verona

St. Joseph Catholic School students and staff want to show their communities how much they are appreciated.

The Verona-based parochial school at 825 Second St. will host its inaugural Community Appreciation Day from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. May 19.

Principal Tina Bucci said she expects people from Penn Hills, Verona, Plum, Oakmont and surrounding areas to attend the free event.

“Our faculty and students support many community programs and participate in several service projects,” she said. “Our students will be offering tours of our amazing school. All of our visitors will have the opportunity to experience the awesomeness of being a part of the St. Joseph School community.”

Free breakfast pastries, coffee and juice will be available until 11:30 a.m. Free hotdogs and fries will be served from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.

First responders will have their emergency vehicles on display and planned activities will include two story time sessions and two STEAM activity sessions for children in addition to face painting, craft vendors and raffles.

The school raised more than $600 for Diocesan Chimbote Mission and $1,000 for UMPC Children’s Hospital Child Life Department.

Call 412-828-7213 for more information about the school or event.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
