Green Means Go, Be Active! Campaign has officially kicked off district-wide with healthy cookout celebrations at all our schools. Students enjoyed a picnic atmosphere complete with the aroma of BBQ chicken, the taste of sweet baked beans, and enough watermelon for second helpings. Elliott Southard, Principal at Mount Lebanon Elementary, notes, "The healthy cookout was a great way to celebrate not only healthy decisions regarding food choices, but also healthy decisions regarding one's overall lifestyle." The healthy cookout is the first of many opportunities to make healthy choices featured on our Green Zone Card program. Students were given the card at the cookout which identifies several fitness and nutritional options where participants can earn hole punches for making healthy choices. Once all to punches are earned, students and employees alike can submit their card to redeem their prize. Upcoming Green Zone Card Events include: 10.08.14 -International Walk to School Day and 11.08.14-Townville’s Turkey Trot.

2014-15 Supply Lists
“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.”

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.
