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.

Students at Foster Elementary School observed Arbor Day on April 29, by planting a tree in front of the school. To commemorate the day and to celebrate Mt. Lebanon's 10th Annual Tree City USA designation, Foster students displayed artwork, read poems, played musical selections, and sang songs about the environment. The tree was donated by the municipality. School Board member Mrs. Elaine Cappucci and Commissioner Steve McLean made brief remarks during the ceremony. The highlight of the ceremony was the planting of a new tree on the front lawn of Foster.

About Arbor Day

Arbor Day originated in Nebraska in 1872, when the State Board of Agriculture adopted J. Sterling Morton's resolution that April 10 of that year be set aside for tree planting. The board awarded premiums for the greatest number of trees, cuttings, and seeds planted. More than a million trees were planted in Nebraska on the first Arbor Day, which is now celebrated on the last Friday in April.

Congratulations to Morgan Meer, grade 9, as the 2016 National Winner of the Christopher Columbus Essay Contest. Since 1996, the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution has joined with the National Italian American Foundation to sponsor an annual national essay contest on Christopher Columbus. The contest is open to students in grades 9 through 12 throughout the United States.

The topic was to discuss the similarities and differences between Christopher Columbus' voyage to the new world and Charles Lindbergh's first solo flight across the Atlantic Ocean and what affect did the 400 years between their accomplishments have on what each man hoped to achieve, the challenges they faced, and the skills essential to their success.

As the first place winner she is invited to go to Washington, D.C. in October to read her winning essay at the Christopher Columbus Celebration. She also receives $1,200 from the NIAF in addition to paid lodging and transportation to Washington, D.C.

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.
