Empty Bowl Fundraiser

Please join us on March 8, 2018 from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the Jefferson Middle School Cafeteria for the first Mellon and Jefferson Empty Bowl Fundraiser.

Students from both Mellon and Jefferson's BIT, Art, FCS, Orchestra, and Choral Enrichment classes have joined forces to help combat hunger in Western Pennsylvania.

For a $10 donation, you will receive a modest dinner of soup, bread, and water, much like a meal someone in need would be served at a soup kitchen. Also included is a chance to win a beautifully crafted ceramic bowl made by our Art Enrichment students. During the evening you will be entertained by Mellon's orchestra and chorus performances. There will also be children's activities and games.

As part of the event, you are invited to join Elizabeth Rychcik from Outreach Teen and Family Services as she presents "Fostering Empathy in a 'Selfie' World". Together we will uncover why nurturing empathy in our children isn't optional, but essential. Practical strategies for combating this generation's self-absorption epidemic will also be addressed along with game changing tips for dealing with technology addiction.

All proceeds from the evening will be donated to the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank.

We would also like to thank our generous donations from the following local businesses: Bonefish Grill, Houlihan's, Redwood Cafe, Rania's Catering, Giant Eagle Market District, TGI Friday's, and Eat 'N Park Restaurant.

Tickets may be purchased in the BIT rooms at both Jefferson and Mellon before and after school. They are $10.00 and checks should be made payable to MTLSD.

Questions should be directed to:

Gwen Kassep -- gkassep@mtlsd.net or Deanna Amenta -- damenta@mtlsd.net

JMS International Night: A Celebration of Culture and Heritage

JMS International Night

Jefferson Middle School held their annual International Night to celebrate the rich cultural diversity of the school. JMS families packed the school to enjoy an evening of food and entertainment from around the world. There is no better place to sample delicious food from every corner of the world as families shared their favorite family recipes for the pot luck dinner--no better way to start off the night than with a community meal. After dinner, the entertainment kicked off in the auditorium. Students proudly displayed their ethnic heritage by performing traditional dances that required great skill and a lot of practice. In addition there were games and raffle baskets that raised $5,600 for the Cali Orphanage Fund to benefit orphanages in Haiti and Colombia. This event has raised thousands of dollars over the years to benefit the work of these orphanages. Congratulations to the JMS community, faculty, students and parents for another successful International Night.

Pennsylvania Students Make Winning Investments!

SIFMA Foundation Stock Market Game™ Students Outperform the Markets!

Pittsburgh area students are showing the world just how much they know about business, the global economy, and investing by creating top performing portfolios.

The Stock Market Game™ curricula, lessons, and hands-on student activities combine content knowledge, critical thinking, research and analytical skills in a state-of-the-art, real-world, online simulation. It provides teachers with curriculum that reinforces Pennsylvania teaching standards, STEM requirements, and 21 Century Skills, while helping students learn the fundamentals of long-term savings and investing. Students enhance their knowledge in core curriculum subjects including math, language arts, and social studies, and they develop life skills such as financial preparedness, teamwork and business knowledge.

An independent study by Learning Point Associates found that students who participated in the SIFMA Foundation's Stock Market Game scored significantly higher on mathematics and financial literacy tests than their peers who did not participate. They also found that teachers who taught The Stock Market Game reported that the program motivated them to better plan for their own financial futures. The Stock Market Game has been named the only program that successfully increased scores on the Jumpstart Coalition's test of high school students' financial literacy.

Awards will be presented to 4th-12th grade students whose investing strategies earned their hypothetical $100,000 portfolios the greatest returns during the Spring 2018 semester."As we celebrate our 40th Anniversary, the Stock Market Game continues to make learning about the capital markets fun and engaging, drawing students in and enabling them to learn about otherwise complex but important economic concepts such as inflation, price indexes, cycles and trends. We are proud and thrilled for all of our student teams who reached the top spots in the Pittsburgh area SMG competition!" said Melanie Mortimer, President of the SIFMA Foundation.
