Greenery improves lives at Pittsburgh Pioneer
The greenery of the new Sensory Garden at Pittsburgh Pioneer will improve the lives of everyone in the school’s community, but especially its students. At the dedication ceremony for the Garden on Tuesday, June 15, students doned their hand-decorated gardening hats, the chorus sang and applause was constant as speakers testified to the innumerable benefits of the Garden and praised Principal Sybia Kunst and her amazing school.

Student Jimi Hutchin performed “God Bless America” at the beginning of the ceremony as well as performing “Ode To Joy” on the keyboard.
The Pittsburgh Pioneer chorus sang “I Believe I Can Fly” and “The World’s Greatest,” two songs whose lyrics reflect just what the school is all about.
