At the District's Opening Day Kick-Off today, we filmed a "Welcome Back to School Wave" with administrators, faculty and staff. It was a fun way to let students know we're looking forward to welcoming them back next week. Enjoy!
The Mt. Lebanon School District is looking for community members and Mt. Lebanon High School Alumni who are passionate about their profession or area of interest and would like to share their expertise with our students. The newly launched Mt. Lebanon School District Community Speakers' Bureau will connect our teachers with individuals who have a desire to "pay it forward" by offering a presentation or sharing a skill or passion with the next generation. Additionally, all teachers in the district will have access to the information collected so every student in the district can potentially take advantage of this collaboration. This initiative is led by the High School STEM Academy and the Global Studies Program departments.

Thank you for your interest. We look forward to hearing from you!
New for this year, each elementary school will kick-off the school year by holding a Meet & Greet for students and families to see their classroom and meet their teachers on Thursday, August 25 from 6:00-8:00 PM. We look forward to welcoming our students back for the 2016-17 school year! Please contact your building principal with questions. See you soon!

Today, a new group of enthusiastic teachers was welcomed into the District by Dr. Steinhauer, administrators and School Board President Larry Lebowitz and Vice President Mary Birks at the kick-off of the teacher induction program. Induction is led by assistant superintendents Dr. Marybeth Irvin and Dr. Ron Davis and includes a week of instruction by most of our administrators and continues with meetings throughout the year. Our induction team includes teachers, principals and administrators and provides a comprehensive and practical overview of the District's mission, strategic plan, and expectations. Discussions focus on student mastery of academic standards, learning about the community and community expectations, discussions of professionalism, school safety and stakeholder engagement. The day ended with a school bus tour of the community and our neighborhood schools to give the new teachers a quick introduction to the Mt. Lebanon community.
The Mt. Lebanon School Board voted at the August 15 Regular Meeting to appoint Stephen Strotmeyer to fill the vacant seat on the Board due to the resignation of Elaine Cappucci. Mr. Strotmeyer is an epidemiologist at the University of Pittsburgh, a six year resident of Mt. Lebanon and has children in the schools. Mr. Strotmeyer will serve through the end of 2017 and has indicated that he plans to run for school board during next year's election.
The Board solicited candidates from the community, conducted public interviews during a Special Meeting held on August 8, and deliberated and voted at the August 15 Regular meeting. U.S. District Judge Terrence McVerry was on hand to administer the oath of office after which Mr. Strotmeyer took his seat on the Board for the voting meeting.
The Neighborhood Ford Store presented the Ford Junior Grand Prix Trophy to Mt. Lebanon student Riley Andrews at Kenny Ross Ford South.
Riley won the competition at the recent Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix, where he built and raced a car of Lego's in the unlimited class. Riley's model had the fastest time of .97 seconds and earned him the first place trophy.
Riley, like many other winners in past competitions, participated in the annual Neighborhood Ford Store event for several years prior to winning this year.
Neighborhood Ford Store is a group of 81 Ford dealers in western Pennsylvania, southeastern Ohio, the panhandle of Maryland and north central West Virginia.
