Congratulations to our High School Model UN Team on their big first place win at the Penn State University Model UN Tournament on November 10-13 in State College. This was the fourth year of the Penn State Model UN Tournament, and our students have won first place every single year. In addition to this team award, four students—namely, Jacob Dale, Eion Wilson-Manion, James Perotti and Grace Brown—won first place honors and four others—Ben Akhtar, Jenny Yu, Marley Howell and Antonio Carapella—received second place honors. Model UN faculty advisors are High School Social Studies teachers George Savarese, Adam Lumish and Pete DiNardo. We both thank them and congratulate the entire team on their success.
The 2016 Student Academic Outcomes Report is a collection of aggregate data from the 2015-2016 school year used as indicators of programmatic and student success. This report represents summative achievement data that the District collects throughout the year via capstone assessments such as the SAT, ACT, Advanced Placement (AP), Keystone, and Pennsylvania System of School Assessment (PSSA) exams.
According to Dr. Steinhauer, "The report represents our commitment to use data to inform our decision-making. The many, many pages of data give us an important high level view of our student's academic performance from which we make important educational decisions.
From a systemic point of view we continue to see high academic performance and positive growth. Although some of the charts and graphs you see may not indicate statistically significant changes in performance the associated trends generally appear to moving in the right direction. The report represents the high quality work that our administrators and teachers do every day."
Each year the students and staff in our schools observe Veterans Day. We in the Mt. Lebanon School District join the nation to recognize and honor all those Americans who have served or continue to serve our country in the Armed Services.
Today, there are more than 25 million veterans living among us. This day reminds us that we need to pause and recognize the contributions made by our veterans and those currently serving, and thank them for their devotion to our country. We must not allow the passage of time or the comforts of peace to erase the memory of their service and sacrifices.
As we observe Veterans Day, please take some time to learn more about the accomplishments of our nation's veterans, their dedication and courage, and their willingness to risk their lives to preserve our liberty. On this day and every day please do not forget the members of your family, neighbors or members of the community who have served our country. Please keep our present service personnel in your thoughts at this time as they serve throughout the world.
We're All In This Together
"We're all in this together" is the theme of the 2016-17 opening day video for staff.

Congratulations to our High School Campus Manager Ms. Pam Wagner for being honored with the School Board Extra Mile Award at the November 21 School Board meeting. Ms. Wagner was nominated by High School Unit Principals McGinty, Dirda and Thompson in the nomination said that " Pam is responsible for being the "eyes and ears" of the administration throughout our High School buildings. Her genuine interest in our students and staff is obvious as she works tirelessly to ensure a safe school environment. Pam takes a proactive approach with students by building relationships that lead to positive outcomes and welcomes students into the building each and every morning with a smile so as to create a warm and caring environment to start the day. As a result, students trust her and go to her with their problems which are just one example of the positive impact which she has made on our High School student body."
