The PBS show Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood visited Mt. Lebanon High School a year ago to film a segment with our band and then senior, Cecilia Larson. We are excited to announce that the show featuring Cecilia and our band will air for the first time on Thursday, February 18 at 9:00 a.m. on PBS (WQED). If you're not a member of the four and under set or don't have younger children, you may not be aware that Daniel Tiger is a superstar who carries the legacy of Mister Rogers' Neighborhood on to a new generation of children. The show is part animation featuring Daniel and his friends O the Owl, Katerina Kittycat, Miss Elaina, and Prince Wednesday and part live action filmed in Pittsburgh. The Fred Rogers Company contacted band director at that time, Louise Marino to see if they could film a segment at the high school since they had heard about our acclaimed High School Blue Devil Marching Band. So be sure to tune in to Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood on February 18 at 9:00am to cheer on Cecilia and the band. Ugga Mugga!!

Vote Now For JMS STEM Video

The 2016 Student Video Contest is sponsored by Catalyst Connection, a non-profit economic development organization that helps small manufacturers in southwestern Pennsylvania improve their competitive performance. Catalyst Connection created the "Explore the New Manufacturing" Program to help build a strong pipeline of talent and give young people a new perspective on the exciting and current career opportunities that exist in the manufacturing industry. The Student Video Contest communicates this accurate image of manufacturing to students' peers, parents, teachers, and community members. With the pilot of this new program, eleven middle schools are participating in this STEAM initiative and seek to answer the question, "What's So Cool About Manufacturing?" The Project aims to create a regional awareness of careers in manufacturing using peer-to-peer videos that will promote manufacturing and provide possible career opportunities for this generation of students. They also work to address the need for a skilled workforce within the manufacturing industry, show the students the interconnectedness between the arts and manufacturing, and engage local manufactures in education. Read more about Catalyst Connection, Explore the New Manufacturing and their educational efforts.

Six of our eighth graders at JMS formed a team that visited Caterpillar Global Mining in Houston, PA. Eighth grade students Michelle Dang, Maya Doichev, Vaughn Glace, Joey Harrington, Jacob Malizio, and Jonah Silverman created a video as a part of a STEM Video competition. Vote for the video until Friday, February 12.
