School Announcements
Welcome Back to School!
Back to School Night was exciting as students of all grade levels came in to meet their new teachers.  Many brought their shiny new supplies with them and were all smiles as they saw their new classrooms, desks and cubbies.  We are thrilled to start a brand new school year with such great students, faculty and staff here at MLES!  Click here to view a slide show of more pictures from Back to School Night.
Attention New Band Students!
All beginning band members are invited to attend our Band Jumpstart Camp on Wednesday, August 13 and Friday, August 15 from 4-6 PM in the Pendleton High School band room.  If you have any questions, please contact Maggie Walters at mwalters@anderson4.org.
Reading on a Rainy Day
Thanks to everyone who came out to the library media center on Monday.  Mrs. Marshall enjoyed meeting all of you and can't wait to see you again! Summer is almost over, but there's plenty of time to keep reading!

Standards-Based Grading Link
Check out our new side link devoted to Standards-Based Grading and Reporting!  This link provides an excellent 10-minute informational video about Mount Lebanon's first year using standards-based grading.  More resources are to come, so check back soon.


Spotlight on Standards Based Grading and Reporting

What should be in grades? Grades should include individual achievement only based on the published learning goals for the school/district.

What should not be in grades?
 Effort, attitude, behavior, attendance, punctuality, tardiness, group work, and so forth should not be in grades, unless they are specifically stated in the standards for a grade or course. These should be assessed and reported on separately.” 
~ from How to Grade for Learning, O’Connor


At Mount Lebanon, our teachers strive to assess student learning based on students’ progress toward the standards of learning.  As you look at your child’s standards-based report card, you will see information on your child’s progress with standards that were taught that nine weeks.  You will also see a section on lifelong learning skills that addresses students’ work ethic, etc.  If you have questions about your child’s growth as a learner, his/her teacher is a phone call or an email away.  Ask them. 


Standards Based Report Card Presentation
If you would like to view the Power Point presentation on Standards Based Report Cards that was used at our Parent Meeting on September 5, it is available for you here:  Standards Based Report Cards Presentation

Thank you to all of those who came to our Parent Meeting.  We appreciate your questions and your support as we move forward in Standards Based Grading.
