Canon-McMillan High School students in Ms. Kim Johovich’s Family & Consumer Studies class participated in a unique service project recently: About 68 students helped prepare a hot meal for more than 150 folks at the Washington City Mission.
On Oct. 29, 15 of those students served their meal - chicken-vegetable casserole, buttered noodles, beef stew, spinach-and-cheese soufflé, tossed salad, fresh fruit salad and homemade biscuits - to City Mission staff members, residents and other locals.
The service project was spurred from a classroom lesson and discussion of the hunger problem in the United States.
“Visiting a local soup kitchen allowed the students to see first-hand that hunger is a national problem also found in our local community,” Ms. Johovich said.
Family & Community Studies is one of three foods courses offered at CMHS. Students enrolled in the course explore topics of food budgeting, consumer economics, global food issues, service to the community and more.
Canon-McMillan Horizon Foundation Presents $10K check to CMSD for McDowell Field Repairs, Maintenance
From left to right: Dale Murdock, foundation board member; Amy D’Amico, foundation president, Michael Daniels, Canon-McMillan School District superintendent; Scott Chambers, Canon-McMillan School District assistant superintendent; Manuel Pihakis, school director, and Frank Vulcano Jr., district athletic director.
The Canon-McMillan Horizon Foundation on Nov. 6 presented a $10,000 check to the Canon-McMillan School District – money that will help fund repairs and maintenance at the McDowell Field.
The $10,000 – which was donated to the foundation anonymously and stipulated for use at the field – along with about $8,900 in donations from the boys’ baseball boosters and proceeds from Powerade will be used for the installation of infield and sideline grass.
The district contracted with A&S Landscaping for that work, as well as the installation of an irrigation system for the infield grass and an upgrade to the warning track.
The Canon-McMillan Horizon Foundation’s mission is to connect the financial, material and social resources of the Canon-McMillan community and the district – with the intention of creating a bond that organizers hope is beneficial to both students, as well as the quality of life for the Canon-McMillan community as a whole.
To accomplish that mission, the Canon-McMillan Horizon Foundation will work to connect the needs of district teachers and students to resources in the community to help support programming, and purchase items that are not in the normal scope of the district’s budget.
Donations to the foundation may be given for general projects, or earmarked for special projects or programming. These monetary donations may be used to purchase materials for teacher-designed projects and more. Organizers said donations in the form of new or used materials also will be accepted.
By way of background, the Canon-McMillan Horizon Foundation was spearheaded three years ago by Vice President, Kathy Berry, and President Amy D’Amico. They, along with two other board members volunteered their time and resources to secure a 501c3 non-profit status. Eligibility for the Educational Improvement Tax Credit is pending.
Known as the EITC, the state program provides valuable tax credits for eligible donating businesses.
When the Canon-McMillan Horizon Foundation becomes part of the program, local businesses that offer monetary donations will be eligible to receive tax credits equal to 75 percent of their contribution - up to a maximum of $750,000 per taxable year.
This credit can be increased to 90 percent of the contribution, if the business agrees to provide the same amount for two consecutive tax years.
For contributions to pre-kindergarten scholarship organizations, donating businesses may receive a tax credit equal to 100 percent of the first $10,000 contributed and up to 90 percent of the remaining amount contributed up to a maximum credit of $200,000 annually.

CMHS Boys Soccer Team Wins WPIAL Championship
Congratulations to the Canon-McMillan High School boys soccer team, which recently won the WPIAL Class AAA title.
The game against second-seeded Fox Chapel High School was held at Highmark Stadium – and was a thriller.
A penalty kick goal late in regulation by senior striker Nick Sodini sent the team into overtime with a 1-1 score. Then in overtime, sophomore forward Brandon Byer scored the game-winning goal to secure a 2-1 victory and propel the team into the PIAA playoffs.
The mission of the Canon-McMillan School District, in partnership with the community, is to invest in our greatest resource, our students. We strive to teach, challenge and support all students to prepare them for college and careers with the information and skills necessary to compete, achieve and serve as leaders in a global economy as ethical and responsible citizens.
The vision of the Canon-McMillan School District is to graduate all students with the ethical and effective communication, critical and creative thinking skills necessary for success in an evolving global economy.
