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.
