Mrs. Deanna Hess, the District Chairperson for Health Services, was selected to receive the 2019 Highmark Foundation Advancing Excellence in School Nursing award in the School Nursing Practice & Leadership Award category. Winners in this category have demonstrated leadership in school health and exhibit qualities of care and compassion.
As part of the award, Mrs. Hess received $1,500 which she has chosen to use for health-related supplies and equipment for our schools. She was presented her award by Ms. Yvonne Cook from the Highmark Foundation. While Mrs. Hess was nominated for this award by Dr. Marybeth Irvin with letters of support from Dr. Steinhauer and Mr. Kitsko, her contributions, expertise and caring are well known across the District. We are pleased and proud to see her excellence recognized in this way.
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.

This month Governor Tom Wolf announced the grant recipients for the School Safety and Security Grant Program. We were very pleased to learn that we will receive $476,660.00 over two years―the second largest award in our region for a broad range of training, equipment, and infrastructure enhancements.
The District's grant proposal was based on the Administration and School Board's emphasis and concern for student mental health and well-being, and the building level safety and security assessments that were completed in partnership with the Mt. Lebanon Police Department.
The grant includes funding for trauma-informed counseling and training, and an additional 136 cameras and the hardware to support them. It also includes an expansion of our communication capacity.
This grant provides an additional $476,000 to the District's effort to address both the mental health and well-being of our students and staff and the significant capital safety and security improvements occurring throughout our buildings.
Special thanks go to Dr. Marybeth Irwin and Dr. Ron Davis for writing such a successful grant, and to Mr. Rick Marciniak and the Mt. Lebanon Police Department for their contributions to this meaningful and important school safety grant.
