Parade scheduled to celebrate Mt. Lebanon school's national award
Lincoln Elementary will celebrate earning its third National Blue Ribbon School designation on Thursday afternoon with a parade around the neighborhood and a ceremony at the Mt. Lebanon school that will temporarily close some streets.
The parade of more than 430 students, staff and administrators will start in front of the school on Ralston Place at 2:30 p.m., proceed down Akron Avenue to Overlook Drive, then travel back through the Beverly Road business district to the school about 3 p.m. Proclamations honoring the school will be read by state Sen. Matt Smith and Rep. Dan Miller, both Mt. Lebanon Democrats.
Beverly Road will be posted as “no parking” from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Thursday, and police will close it to traffic for about 20 minutes shortly before 3 p.m. as students parade through, said Mt. Lebanon police Lt. Aaron Lauth.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments â either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
