Frankenstein 1930 will be presented by The Mt Lebanon High School Evening and Technical Theatre Companies on November 9-12 at 7:30 p.m. in the High School Fine Arts Theatre.
Harking back to the original concept of Frankenstein, this version amplifies the film's suspenseful horror and adds greater depth of character and motivation as well as a new and different love story. All of the eagerly anticipated elements are here: the stone walled laboratory, the crazed scientist, angry villagers, a swooning heroine, a fearful storm and the hideous yet pathetic, deadly creature with its confused mind and powerful, undisciplined body.
Adapted from Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley's book by Fred Carmichael the play is directed by James Marsh, set design by Greg Kuhar, costume design by Maresa Bahr and lighting/sound design by David Stoklosa.
General Admission tickets are $7.00 may be ordered online at www.mtlsd.org/tickets or call 412-344-2067.

On October 20, 2016 the program Dare to Dream: REIMAGINING OUR ELEMENTARY LIBRARIES was held to begin exploring new opportunities to enhance the Mt. Lebanon School District elementary libraries. A well-attended audience of school administrators, school librarians, teachers, parents and community members gathered to hear Keith Webster, Dean of University Libraries at Carnegie Mellon University share the latest thinking in 21st Century school libraries to help shape the vision for our library initiative. Dean Webster also discussed the importance of maker spaces in libraries where students have a common space to explore and create across disciplines such as design, math, engineering, art, music, computer science, and literature.
During the program, Dr. Timothy Steinhauer announced that Mt. Lebanon parents and alumni David and Noelle Conover made a gift of $175,000 to help us make this re-imagining a reality for our libraries. This generous gift ($25,000 for each elementary school) will help with the initial funding of a Matt's Maker Space in each elementary library. The hope is that others will join the Conover family in supporting this initiative.
The Conover's gift is in honor of their son Matt who lost a courageous battle with cancer in 2002, when he was just 12 years old. Matt attended Foster Elementary and Mellon Middle School. He had a passion for technology so it is fitting that Matt's Maker Space rooms are at the cutting edge of STEAM education. According to Noelle Conover, "They are the kinds of spaces that will allow our students to be not only competitive but will let our students "Dream!" Matt's Maker Spaces will be as unique and different as our elementary schools are." We thank the Conover family with our deepest gratitude for their generosity and support of our schools and we invite our elementary community to become involved in this initiative.
Next steps: Our elementary principals will convene committees in their schools to discuss the vision for their particular library. If you are interested in participating, please contact your building principal.
Thanks to our wonderful Mt. Lebanon Crossing Guards, our students are kept safe on their way to and from school each day. No matter what the weather-snow, sleet or rain-these dedicated individuals are always at their posts with a smile and helping hand. They are the first to welcome our students to school in the morning and the last smile they see on their way home. These women and men are an important part of our school communities and we thank them for their service. #leboproud

We are pleased to announce that Mt. Lebanon High School has earned accreditation by the Middle States Association Commissions on Elementary and Secondary Schools, a worldwide leader in accreditation and continuous school improvement.
"We are pleased to have earned accreditation by the Middle States Association and to share in our success with the greater school community, especially the teachers, parents and students who worked so hard to make this possible," said Principal Brian McFeeley. "Accreditation confirms and validates the work we do each and every day to ensure a top quality education for our students."
Accreditation is a self-evaluation process that schools voluntarily undergo to demonstrate they are meeting a defined set of performance standards. The accreditation process helps schools – and ultimately students – to continuously grow and improve.
The process begins with a self-study that is conducted by the school and requires input from school leaders, teachers, parents and students. Following the self-study, a team of volunteer educators from Association member schools conducts an on-site peer review visit to observe school operations and interview various stakeholders.
The visiting team makes its recommendation to the Middle States Association Commissions, which votes on the accreditation.
"The accreditation process examines schools in a holistic way, supplementing student testing data and providing a more complete measure of a school's performance," said Henry G. Cram, Ed.D., president of the Middle States Association Commissions on Elementary and Secondary Schools. "School leaders, teachers and parents are to be commended for working together to create a concrete plan focused on providing high quality education for all students."

We are pleased to announce that Ms. Susan Meer, Mt. Lebanon High School chemistry teacher, has been selected as a recipient of the 2016 Yale Educator Award.
This award, sponsored by the Yale Office of Undergraduate Admissions, recognizes teachers and counselors from around the world who inspire and support their students to perform at high levels and to achieve excellence. Students entering the Yale Class of 2020 were asked to nominate outstanding educators who have deeply impacted their lives.
Ms. Meer was nominated for the award by Nancy Lu and then selected as a winner by a committee in the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. In their announcement, the Yale selection committee noted, "As our committee reviewed nominations, we were constantly reminded of the unique and critical role that exceptional educators play in shaping their students' futures by encouraging them to pursue their goals. The entire admissions office credits the excellent quality of this year's freshman class to teachers and counselors like you who have been shaping our students long before they arrive at Yale."
Congratulations to Ms. Meer on this honor.
