It’s the first day back to school for Chartiers Valley students! We all remember that dreadful day when we throw on our brand new clothes, tie up (or Velcro) our styling new shoes and throw on that backpack that is amazingly light without any books inside. Then we walk to the bus stop with Mom not far behind. In my case, I trudged out the front door and walked to the neighborhood elementary school in Mt. Lebanon. Then things would settle down a little bit when you'd take a seat at your new desk and meet your new teachers for the year. So we want you to share your child’s Back To School photos as he or she heads off to the school bus stop waiting to start another year. You can easily upload the photos or videos by clicking on the large “…

Chartiers Valley Middle School students participated in the annual fundraiser.
Chartiers Valley Middle School students participated in the annual Turkey Trot last week to raise money for needy families. The annual event on Friday raised more than $3,000 that will be used to purchase supermarket gift cards to area families in need during the holidays. The run from the stadium around the high school and back to the football field also raised awareness about exercising and healthy living. The public address announcer could be heard shouting encouragement that “running is fun” and “you can do it” to the students. The “winner” of the trot was sixth grade math teacher Jason Ward, who triumphantly raised his arms in the air after crossing the finish line before playfully collapsing on the track.

Sean Biancaniello is a new math teacher for the district.
Sean Biancaniello has teaching in his blood and he cannot wait to share it this school year with his students at the Chartiers Valley Middle School and High School.

Even though the school year is only two days in, the new mathematics teacher said he has enjoyed his first few days on the job. “What …
