Link Crew Gives Warm Welcome to Class of 2022


The week before school started, the High School Link Crew student mentors and faculty advisers welcomed the Class of 2022 to the high school. It was a fun, friendly introduction to the high school that hopefully made the 450 students in our freshmen class feel more comfortable and less stressed for the start of high school.


Special thanks go to the junior and senior Link Crew leaders who were trained as mentors to help guide our 9th grade class through their first year of high school, and the high school faculty coordinators Mike Locke, Shelly Saba, Christy Smith and Katelyn Deet.

The Mt. Lebanon High School program was also featured in The Almanac. 



Growing Up Mindful

The Mt. Lebanon School District and PTA Council hosted a presentation by Dr. Christopher Willard on Growing Up Stressed or Growing Up Mindful on August 20 to a standing room only audience in the Fine Arts Theatre. The response to the presentation was very positive. Dr. Willard not only spoke about how mindfulness is good for our kids but is also very good for adults. As he said, "Stressed out, anxious adults create stressed out anxious kids."
