The weather was perfect for Three Rivers Village School and Arts Excursions Unlimited’s open house celebration in April.

Residents of Hazelwood with fond memories of the YMCA on Chatsworth had a chance to see inside again. Everyone admired the renovation work by Hazelwood Initiative. Kids played inside and outside. The art space that TRVS and AEU will share was busy with both kids and adults. People silkscreened t-shirts and customized buttons to pin on their clothing.

Families from the neighborhood and all over Allegheny County interested in enrollment at TRVS toured the building and talked with staff and parents of current students about the Sudbury school model.

AEU cooked hot dogs on the grill. And what’s a party without cake? Spirits were high and the atmosphere was festive.

We are so grateful for all who came to the event and made it the celebration we were hoping to have. Watch this space for news about more upcoming events for our neighbors!

TRVS is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 to 4:00 during the school year. If you weren’t able to make it to the open house, contact us to schedule a tour. We’d love to see you, whether you’re a family interested in play-based learning and raising children as free people with real responsibilities, or someone who knew the building back in the day and wants to see it full of life again.
