It was another great day at Pittsburgh Oliver High School. On Friday April 3, 2009, Pittsburgh Oliver engaged in a Staff vs. Students basketball game to cap off March Madness. This was a beautiful event. The staff squad was comprised of instructors, security, and providers. The student squad had members of our basketball teams, student council and ROTC.

The only frown’s were on the faces of the staff as we lost 59 to 57. (more…)
