Teacher InductionThis week we welcomed a new group of enthusiastic teachers into the District with an orientation and induction program led by assistant superintendents Dr. Marybeth Irvin and Dr. Ron Davis. The first morning kicked off with a welcome from School Board President Mary Birks and an opening session with Dr. Tim Steinhauer. The District Induction team includes teachers, principals and administrators and provides a comprehensive, practical overview of the District's mission, strategic plan, and expectations. Discussions focus on student mastery of academic standards, learning about the community and community expectations, discussions of professionalism, school safety and stakeholder engagement. The first day ended with a school bus tour of the community and our neighborhood schools to give the new teachers a quick introduction to the Mt. Lebanon.

This summer, as part of the District's REIMAGINE Our Elementary Libraries initiative, a group of Mt. Lebanon teachers from each of our elementary schools attended the Children's Museum Makerspace Boot Camp. In preparation for the opening of the Matt's Makerspaces in the seven elementary schools this fall, the teachers took part in an immersive four-day professional development workshop to experience and understand the philosophy and practice of making. The teachers took part in hands-on workshops that focused on fiber projects, coding and building in the museum's makeshop. They explored the processes, materials, and approach of successful maker education and the training to bring these back to our new makerspaces.

The new makerspaces will give students the chance to collaborate, tinker, experiment, and create. The mission of the Mt. Lebanon School District "Reimagining Libraries Initiative" is to facilitate maker-centered learning through the establishment of Matt's Maker Spaces in each of the elementary buildings. The goals of maker-centered learning are to encourage exploration of the design and engineering process, computer science, and creative tinkering to foster critical thinking, collaboration, communication, and persistence in problem solving.

With the addition of Matt's Makerspaces in our libraries, our students will have a creative space to explore their ideas, create in technology or art, build and engineer or just try new things thanks to the generosity of Mt. Lebanon alumni Noelle and Dave Conover. Click here to learn more about our REIMAGINE Our Elementary Libraries initiative.

The Mt. Lebanon School District is looking for community members and Mt. Lebanon High School Alumni who are passionate about their profession or area of interest and would like to share their expertise with our students. The Mt. Lebanon School District Community Speakers' Bureau connects our teachers with individuals who have a desire to "pay it forward" by offering a presentation or sharing a skill or passion with the next generation. Additionally, all teachers in the district will have access to the information collected so every student in the district can potentially take advantage of this collaboration. This initiative is led by the High School STEM Academy and the Global Studies Program departments.

For the fifth year in a row, students of Dr. Mike Gullo organized and led a school supply drive and collected gently used school supplies during locker clean-out days. This year, the students wanted to make a larger impact, so they met with Mrs. Janice Cherry at Jefferson Middle School, to see if JMS would contribute items from their locker clean-out days, which they did enthusiastically. As a result, the High School collected more than 120 pounds of gently used school supplies from this year's locker clean-out days and along with those items collected from Jefferson Middle School. High School librarian Mrs. Christy Smith connected the students with the Education Partnership which takes gently used school supplies and makes them available in an open warehouse where teachers and students from the Pittsburgh area can visit and 'shop' for free to donated the supplies.

Thanks to the student leaders from the high school: Ryan Roseweir, Ava King, Laura Boswell, Allison Jones, Lucy Klug, and Megan Dietrick and the student leaders from Jefferson Middle School: Caroline Kenney, Kelsey Cadahia Frankel, and Madeline Gyurina who took the time at the end of last school year to make a difference for other students as they start the new school year.
