Congratulations to Barrett Elementary for completing all the requirements to be considered a “PA PBS Network Participating Site” during the 2020-2021 school year. This school year is like no other and so the network adjusted requirements to our “Recognition” system.
Barrett Elementary School has been for 12 years, but never identified ourselves as such.
Thank you for your commitment to creating a positive school climate EVEN during these unprecedented times.
Steel Valley SADD asked each of their members to come up with a New Year’s Resolution that would reflect the vision of SADD which is “SADD envisions a world in which young people make positive decisions that advance their health and safety”.
Our SV SADD officers then designed a Word Wall with all of the resolutions!
“Amazing job!”, said Mrs. McCallister, SV SADD advisor.
Steel Valley HS Senior student, Isabella Sabo, was just accepted to the 2021 I Look Like a Cardiologist program that is run by the UPMC Heart and Vascular Institute. Admission was competitive with over 120 applications for 50 spots, and students were selected after a review of their application that consisted of transcripts, test scores, and three essays. Students will attend 4 virtual sessions in January and have 4 meetings with a paired young physician mentor. All students who complete the program will be given a letter of reference for them to use for summer programs, internships, and college applications.
On Tuesday, September 1, a new outdoor reading area in memory of Park Elementary Teacher Maria Heddleston was dedicated with her friends, family and colleagues in attendance. The reading area is located in front of the school on the corner of Cambria and Main Streets in Munhall.
There, children can swap, borrow or take a book and then read it on the area’s newly built bench.
Heddleston was a lifelong resident of the Steel Valley area and taught at Park Elementary for over 20 years. During the dedication ceremony, Park Elementary Principal Dr. Shaughnessy and Secondary Campus Principal/Federal Programs Director Bryan Macuga spoke about the huge difference Heddleston made in the lives of her many students.

In addition, she completed 285 hours of community service between July 1, 2019 and June 30, 2020.
