Each June, we bid farewell and best wishes to those members of our faculty and staff who are retiring. Through their diligent and skillful work, our retiring employees have enriched the lives of our students and their colleagues, and have directly contributed to the District's success. We are grateful to them.

This year we have 1 administrator, 4 faculty members, and 9 support staff retiring. Together they represent over 261 years of expertise and experience.

At the May 20 School Board meeting, they were presented with a certificate and a Mt. Lebanon pin as a small token of thanks and appreciation for their dedication to the District's mission to provide the best education possible to each and every student. Their contributions were foundational to the success of our students and schools.

Some of the retirees attended the School Board recognition held on May 20.

Here is the complete list of retirees for the 2018-2019 school year.
