Line Mountain Youth in Philanthropy
On Tuesday, April 18 our Youth In Philanthropy students and advisors joined more than 190 students from 13 school districts in our region to present grant awards to grantee organizations in the surrounding community. This was our school’s inaugural year in the program. Over the past year, our Line Mountain students received rave reviews for their performance from donors, board members, directors, and associates of the Community Giving Foundation’s YIP program. As their advisors, Mrs. Poltonavage and Mrs. Yisrael couldn’t be prouder of the students and the manner in which they represented the Line Mountain School District.
The purpose of Line Mountain Youth in Philanthropy is for students to discover the meaning of philanthropy, learn about the local non-profit world, and take part in the grant-making process. Through this program, students are empowered to make a positive impact in their communities now and in the future. For the 2022-2023 school year our Youth in Philanthropy club awarded the following grants:
- Transitions of PA – Big Life Journey Program. This program will help students address issues related to self-esteem, responsible decision making, self-awareness, and facilitating positive peer interactions with the intention of helping students to reach their potential in developing a positive social emotional skill set that they can carry forward in their lives.
- Camp Dost – A Program of the Ronald McDonald House of Danville. This program was conceived to give pediatric cancer patients the opportunity to enjoy a summer camp experience without having to worry about the overall challenges of fighting cancer. Our grant will help send 4 campers to camp for an entire week.
This year, 65 grants totaling $63,500 were awarded through Community Giving Foundation’s Youth in Philanthropy program. For more info visit: https://csgiving.org/2023/04/youth-in-philanthropy-awards-2023-grants/
There were many grants awarded to school district programs and initiatives. We hope next school year you will take the opportunity to apply for the grant funds available through this outstanding program.

Randy Weiser Memorial Classroom
The Line Mountain Randy Weiser Memorial Classroom is beginning to take shape. This outdoor classroom is being built by faculty and students in honor of long-time Middle School Teacher Mr. Randy Weiser. The outdoor classroom will be used by the High School and the Middle School for outdoor learning and leisure during the Spring and Fall months of the school year.
The Color Of Flight
From the Daily Item: “Art teacher Wes Wagner and math teacher Charles Keer and their students unveiled ‘The Color of Flight’ in the hallway between the art and math departments. The wall mural, which depicts an eagle flying out of a hallway, uses leading lines and contrasting shapes to create the illusion of space and dimension.
Anamorphic employs a unique form of perspective in which the art can only be viewed properly from one single vantage point. Away from this point, distortion and warped forms create a uniquely abstracted image. As a person walks down the hall away from that vantage tile, the proportions of the mural becomes oblique and exaggerated. The art changes because it is based on a grid system that has tapering geometric proportions.”

Parent/Student Digital Citizenship Videos
Digital citizenship is the appropriate and responsible use of technology. Too often we are seeing students, as well as adults, misusing and abusing technology but not sure what to do. The issue is more than what users don’t know, it’s what is considered appropriate. The videos provided below will help parents educate themselves as well as their children in the appropriate use of technology and social media.
