JMS International Night a Great Success
January 24, 2014
JMS families enjoyed performances from Japanese drummers, student dance performances, and Chinese Dragon entertainers.

Jefferson Middle School held its 7th Annual International Night last night and despite the cold and snow, hundreds of families turned out to enjoy delicious international cooking, games, and entertainment--all for a good cause--to benefit orphanages in Haiti. The staff, students, PTA, and especially, JMS teachers Ashlee Beckett and Molly Wetmore, worked very hard to create a memorable event for families and community members to come together and celebrate the rich cultural diversity in Mt. Lebanon. State Senator Matt Smith and State Rep Dan Miller presented JMS Social Studies teacher, Ms. Ashlee Beckett with citations from the PA House and Senate to recognize her work in organizing the International Night and for her selection by Duquesne University for the Mind, Heart and Spirit Award. This award is given to Duquesne alumni who exemplify the Mission of the University in their daily lives through career successes, community service, and service to others.

The JMS PTA also contributed to the success of International Night. The organization was awarded the 2013 Pennsylvania PTA Cultural Awareness in Family Engagement Mini-Grant. The $500 grant was awarded to help support the International Night and was the first grant of this kind to be awarded by PA PTA.
