LMSD Transportation Department Wins Award

Congratulations are in order for the Lower Merion School District's Transportation Department. On November 23, 2022, the Eastern Pennsylvania Alliance for Clean Transportation (EP-ACT) presented LMSD Transportation Supervisor Uldis Vilcins with their 2022 Environmental Excellence Award.

The award is presented to an organization that exemplifies vision and environmental stewardship, and has been a staunch supporter of EP-ACT and alternative fuel vehicle technologies during the tenure of its membership.

According to the presenting organization, this level of recognition is traditionally considered for organizations with 4 years+ of EP-ACT membership and service. In addition, the organization typically provides support to EP-ACT through participation in sub-committees, special events, and membership in executive committees and/or board of directors.

Congratulations to our Transportation supervisors, office staff, bus drivers, maintenance technicians and bus aides who not only safely transport thousands of students each day, but also are doing their part to protect the environment!

Harriton National Honor Society Delivers Thanksgiving Meals

For the tenth year, members of Harriton High School's National Honor Society partnered with the Montgomery County Office of Children and Youth to help provide holiday meals for families in need. The students held a school-wide Thanksgiving food drive and collected monetary donations to purchase gift cards.

The students sorted the non-perishable food donations into meal boxes for 100 families identified by the county, ensuring that each family would have what they need to celebrate the holiday. They decorated the boxes with Thanksgiving greetings and numbered each one so that every family would get what they needed.

On Friday morning, November 18, 2022, 47 seniors from Harriton's National Honor Society helped unload the boxes from trucks that were driven to the county offices in Norristown by members of the School District's Operations Department. The students also provided $3000 in gift cards that county social workers will give to the families to buy perishable items to complete their holiday meals.

Since this project was started, Harriton students have helped 1000 families in this manner. County Commissioners Kenneth E. Lawrence Jr. and Joseph C. Gale commended the students and the wider Harriton community for their generosity and thoughtfulness for others.

Harriton teacher Donna Rossi, who serves as the National Honor Society's faculty advisor, noted that just about everyone at Harriton participated in the effort, including students from all grades, professional and support staff, bus drivers, custodians and nurses.

This project -- led by some of LMSD's most academically gifted and actively involved students -- exemplifies the District motto, "Enter to Learn, Go Forth to Serve."

Kiran Cup Squash Tournament Fundraiser for Lower Merion Township Scholarship Fund

On November 26, 2022, The Cynwyd Club will host a non-US Squash sanctioned charity tournament to benefit the Lower Merion Township Scholarship Fund in memory of Kiran Khurana. Kiran and her parents were tragically killed in a plane crash in August 2019, and this terrible loss has been felt throughout the community.

Kiran was a 2018 graduate of Harriton High School. She participated in Lower Merion's District-run squash program beginning in elementary school and throughout her middle and high school years. She was a dependable member of the nationally-ranked Harriton-LM squash team, often surprising her opponents with her ability to get to shots that seemed impossible to return. Kiran's tenacity and work ethic were matched off the court with strong academic skills and a love for learning. Kiran had recently finished her first year at McGill University and had unlimited potential. The Harriton/Lower Merion community misses Kiran and honors her memory.

The "I Play for Kiran" Tournament will be run in either a round-robin or more traditional bracket format based on the number of interested players. Play will either be best of three or a traditional five-game match. All levels and ages of players are encouraged to participate (elementary through adult, novice to expert). And if you prefer to cheer the players on from the stands, please join us on November 26.

All participants must follow all of The Cynwyd Club Rules including wearing white clothing, appropriate eye protection and all COVID protocols. COVID rules may change with CDC recommendations, so please be aware of any information regarding these changes.

Financial assistance is available to LMSD students. All questions regarding this event can be emailed to iplayforkiran@gmail.com. Start times will be released on 11/25.

How to Register

  • Register online here until 11/23
  • After 11/24 please email iplayforkiran@gmail.com to register.
  • On the day of the event, you can pay through your mobile device. Text KIRAN to 41444 or bring a check for $45 made out to "Lower Merion Township Scholarship Fund" to the event.

Affordable Internet Connectivity Program

Financial Help for Families to Connect to the Internet

The Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) will allow many American households to reduce their internet service costs by up to $30/month.

There are three different ways to qualify, and you'll be able to take advantage of this benefit if you meet any one of them.

  • The first category is income — specifically, whether the money you make annually is at or below 200% of the federal poverty level. For an individual, that would be $27,180. For a couple (or any household of two), the total is $36,620. For a family of four, that total rises to $55,500. The full income chart is available here.
  • Second, you'll also qualify if you or someone else in your household is a beneficiary of assistance programs including Medicaid, the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC), the Veterans Pension and Survivors Benefit, and more.
  • Finally, you're also eligible if you've already met the criteria for an existing low-income program from a local internet provider in your area.

If you'd like to claim this benefit for your family, you can start the process right here.

Which internet service providers are participating?
