Mt. Lebanon science students Alexander Hall, Carter Hall, Star Rosnick, Rebecca Schwartz, and Troy Weaver participated in the 77th annual Covestro Pittsburgh Regional Science and Engineering Fair on April 1 at Heinz Field.. Each student presented an individual research project to a variety of judges from both industry and academia. Alexander Hall achieved a 4th place category award for physics. Mr. Kyle Tilger is the faculty advisor.
The Covestro Pittsburgh Regional Science & Engineering Fair celebrates its 77th year of open competition of research projects in the fields of science, mathematics, and engineering. This competition is open to all students in grades 6-12 from the 23 counties within Western Pennsylvania and one county in Maryland. The Science Fair has been a Pittsburgh tradition since 1940. It is also the third oldest science fair in the United States under the affiliation of Society for Science and the Public, which facilitates the International Science and Engineering Fair.
The Mt. Lebanon School District was among the top ranked school districts in the nation in the 11th annual Digital School Districts Survey by the Center for Digital Education and the National School Boards Association. This is the third straight year the District has been recognized with this prestigious national award. The District was ranked #2 out of 10 (up from #3 last year) in the mid-sized student population category of 3,000 - 12,000 students and the only school district in Pennsylvania awarded in this category. The award showcases exemplary school boards' and districts' use of technology to govern the district, communicate with students, parents and the community, and improve district operations. This award is a reflection of the collaboration between the District's technology and communications departments. The award highlights the launch of our new website, citing the extensive amount of information made available to parents and the public; the District's use of social media to engage our constituents; and the innovative use of technology both in infrastructure design and to enhance learning in the classroom.
Mt. Lebanon High School will present Peter Pan on Thursday, May 5 through Saturday, May 7 at 7:30 PM in the high school auditorium. There will also be a special 2:00 PM matinee show on Saturday, May 7 followed by an opportunity for children to have their photos taken with Peter, Captain Hook, Wendy, the Alligator, and the rest of the Neverland gang. Peter Pan is a colorful and lively show based on J.M. Barrie's classic tale and featuring an unforgettable score by Morris "Moose" Charlap and Jule Styne with lyrics by Carolyn Leigh and Betty Comden and Adolph Green. ZFX flying effects will provide cast members with the magic of soaring through space.
Peter and his mischievous fairy sidekick Tinkerbell visit the nursery of the Darling children late one night and with a sprinkle of pixie dust begin a magical journey across the stars that none of them will ever forget. In the adventure of a lifetime the travelers come face to face with a ticking crocodile, a fierce Indian tribe, a band of bungling pirates, and of course the villainous Captain Hook.
Featuring the iconic songs "I'm Flying," "I've Gotta Crow," "I Won't Grow Up," and "Never Never Land," and a rousing book full of magic, warmth, and adventure, Peter Pan is the perfect show for the child in all of us who dreamed of soaring high and never growing up.

Each year since 1945, the Pittsburgh Section of the American Chemical Society has sponsored a contest for secondary schools in the tri-state area to recognize outstanding achievement by the students and their teachers as well as encourage interest in chemistry among school students. Congratulations to high school freshman Emma Imbarlina for winning Third Place for the first-year students in a large school. Emma will receive $100 along with her award. Her teacher is Susan Gillette Meer, and she is in her 9th Grade Honors Chemistry Class. This is the 11th year in a row that Mt. Lebanon students have placed in the top three spots in the competition.
The contest recognizes three categories: first-year students in large school, first-year students in small schools, and second-year students. The contest is also used to qualify students interested in participating in the International Chemistry Olympics and to identify students for scholarships. This year approximately 130 of the area's top students from approximately 25 schools competed for prizes and scholarships.
All winning students, their parents, and their teachers are invited to attend an awards banquet in May to celebrate their noteworthy achievement with the American Chemical Society.
