Priest hosts a Planetarium, thanks to Grow Up Great partnership

Priest hosted a mobile Planetarium, allowing students from Priest and Beard Early Childhood to experience the magic of the night sky as part of the Early Childhood Initiative in collaboration with PNC Bank.

In May 2010, the PNC Foundation announced a $2.1 million investment with the Detroit Public Schools Foundation, the Detroit Science Center and the Music Hall Center for the Performing Arts to establish new programs in science and the arts for underserved preschool children in the Detroit Public Schools.

PNC’s commitment leverages the experience of the three institutions to create new programs in preschool teacher training, add activities to enhance the arts and sciences curriculum of the Detroit Public Schools pre-k program and engage parents in their children’s learning experiences, according to PNC.
