Baldwin-Whitehall School District and the Remake Learning Network will be hosting a community event at Baldwin High School on May 26. 

In hopes of bringing together the Baldwin-Whitehall community, “Won’t You be My Neighbor” Day will be held in honor of Mister Rogers’ legacy in Pittsburgh. 

The Remake Learning Network is an organization based in Pittsburgh that focuses on the development of engaging and inclusive learning practices for today’s students. 

The event is open to all members of the Baldwin-Whitehall community, said Dr. Kara Eckert, the district’s student engagement coordinator. Student clubs from the school will be setting up booths in the central lot of the high school, similar to the Homecoming Carnival. Area businesses and organizations also will have booths.

Our goal is to partner with our neighbors, organizations, and businesses to bring everyone together to celebrate how great this community is,” Eckert said. 

It will be held in the central lot from 6 to 8 p.m. Food trucks will be available, as well as educational activities and games. 

“I was blown away at how popular the Homecoming Carnival was this year, and I’m hoping that this will be an event on a similar scale,” Principal Shaun Tomaszewski said.
