A huge thank you to the NA community for selling out the spaghetti dinner!  The proceeds will go towards printing/postage costs from the Peebles Fire Hall meeting, printing costs for the neighborhood flyers distributed prior to the public hearing, and yard signs to be ordered next month.

The next school board meeting is Wednesday, February 27th at 7pm in the Carson Middle School auditorium. If you are interested in speaking, please contact Rose Mary Ryan at or 412-369-5437.

The SaveNASchools Spaghetti Dinner is sold out! We have stopped online sales because we cannot accept more than 300 reservations. We would like to thank the community for its overwhelming response to this event!

If you are interested in ordering yard signs, but were unable to purchase a ticket to the dinner, please email Thank you!

The community had 15 days following the January 30th public hearing to submit information into the public record (the deadline was midnight on February 14th). In the last two weeks, over 400 letters were sent to the North Allegheny School Board opposing the closure of Peebles Elementary.  All 400+ letters will become part of the final record.

We want to thank each and every member of the community who has taken the time to advocate on behalf of the 3,500+ elementary students in the district as part of this movement.  Our message is being heard by board members.

Please join us for the Save NA Schools Spaghetti Dinner on Monday, February 25th from 6-8pm at the Franklin Park Volunteer Fire Hall.  This event will be an opportunity for the community to come together and enjoy a fun-filled evening of food and games, while discussing the final strategy leading up to the vote.  Catered by Park Cafe and Catering, the meal will include spaghetti with your choice of sauce (meat sauce or marinara), Breadworks bread, tossed salad, and homemade cookies for dessert.  A Chinese auction will be available thanks to the participation of several local businesses. Join the fun, order yard signs, ask questions, and become part of the effort.  Dinner tickets are $5 for kids under 10 and $10 for everyone else.  We request that you purchase dinner tickets in advance.

You can order dinner tickets on-line by clicking here or by clicking on the flyer below. We look forward to seeing you on February 25th!

We are encouraging residents to do the following 3 things this week:

1) Email Rep. Mike Turzai and ask him to advocate on behalf of Peebles the same way he did for Bradford Woods. In the fall of 2011, when Bradford Woods was proposed for closure, Rep. Turzai met with school board members and told them he did not want Bradford Woods to close. We are requesting that you email Rep. Turzai at and ask him to tell the school board he is opposed to closing ANY elementary building in the district.

2) Send a letter to the school board by emailing school board secretary Rose Mary Ryan at If you spoke at the hearing, simply draft your comments into a letter and address it to the entire board.

3) Mark your calendar for Monday, February 25th. SaveNASchools will be holding a spaghetti dinner fundraiser from 6-8pm at the Franklin Park Fire Hall. This event will be an opportunity for the community to get more information, discuss strategy, and order yard signs. Click here for the Spaghetti Dinner Flyer and here to purchase tickets.
