Riverview students share their global mindset

Riverview School District  |  Posted on

A group of elementary students in grades 1-6 in Riverview School District had the opportunity to learn about foreign languages and culture in a unique after-school experience with some global-minded high schoolers. The older students, Marina Pietz, Francesca Lio, Mikaela Colins and Emily Pietragallo, each earned a Global Scholars Certificate through the World Affairs Council of Philadelphia this past school year. The four created the language and culture curriculum, which they shared with the elementary students, as part of the Capstone project for their certificate. Over their high school tenure, the Global Scholars were required to take classes on world affairs and global studies, complete 20 hours of global service, and participate in global affairs activities, such as Model United Nations, according to an article in the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.
