Famiy Fun Night and Celebration

This year, South Mountain celebrates its 10-year anniversary as a United Way of the Greater Lehigh Valley Community School. To commemorate this milestone, our annual Family Fun Night from 5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m., Wednesday, February 22, will include a celebratory component. The celebration will kick off at 4:30 p.m. with a brief news conference that will highlight the success of the Lehigh Valley’s first Community School.

Family Fun Night features free food, carnival games, face painting, Zumba, indoor sports games, Bingo, and various other family friendly activities. The event is Free and open to the community.

United Way of the Greater Lehigh Valley supports Community Schools through partnerships with youth and family-serving providers, corporate sponsors and community volunteers to provide a better learning experience for its students who may otherwise not receive such resources.

Today, South Mountain has made great strides in academic performance and student attendance. Half of its 1200 students are engaged in after school programs such as tutoring, mentoring, music, theater, sports, STEM (hands-on learning through science and technology experiments) and leadership programs.
