A MESSAGE FROM MRS. HYLAND

Dear Berkeley Hills families,

A Warrior shout-out to our awesome Berkeley Hills boys basketball team

All of us at the Berkeley Hills Campus are so proud of your hard work and dedication to an excellent season as Eden Christian Academy Warriors. 

Special thanks and appreciation to Mr. Nestor and Mr. Dean for coaching our 5th and 6th grade team!

Chapel News

Last week, the Berkeley Hills Campus welcomed Joel Gray, Pirates Community Outreach Coordinator, who presented the Long Live Their Legacy honoring Negro League Baseball. Students enjoyed the interactive presentation!

P ittsburgh is one of the few cities that had two Negro League teams, the Homestead Grays and Pittsburgh Crawfords , and both thrived before Jackie Robinson broke baseball's color barrier with the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1947. Many Negro League games were played at Greenlee Field in Pittsburgh's Hill District.

Students enjoyed the interactive presentation learning about the League, its ties to Pittsburgh, and the significant role it plays in our game today.
