Just before school began for the year, Pittsfield Elementary teachers went on a bus trip that took them through the neighborhoods of their incoming students, with the goal of fostering stronger connections with their community. The final stop on the route was a happy surprise: Office Max. There, the teachers were gifted with school supplies for their classrooms. A wonderful way to start the new year!
