Spring Choral Concert – Excellent!

Our BHS choral students performed a most enjoyable spring concert this evening showcasing their beautiful talents.

The program began with the choir standing in the aisles of the auditorium singing a capella while Tommie Lin Kesten performed a dance routine in memory of her brother, Ty. It was very moving.

Throughout the concert the variety of songs were vast and the range of our students’ talents was impressive.

It was truly an enjoyable night to hear beautiful voices and relaxing music.

Bravo!

Keystone Testing Days

All students are to be at school on time during ALL Keystone testing days.

Students who come to school late on the testing days who do not have a doctor’s note or legitimate reason to be tardy will be marked unexcused. This will impact any student who is on Social Probation.

All students are to be at school on time during ALL Keystone testing days.

School begins at our normal time – we are simply operating on a schedule that allows our students who are required to take the test to have uninterrupted time to complete the assessment.

We are operating on the same type of schedule that we have for the past three years – beginning at 7:45 AM.

All students are to be at school on time during ALL Keystone testing days.

Some of the greatest athletes

Good luck and congratulations to all of the athletes participating in the Special Olympics held at Baldwin High School. This has been a tradition for the past 30 years that we are proud to support.

The rain has not dampened any of the spirit and enthusiasm displayed by the athletes, family members, and volunteers.

Prudential Community Service Award Honoree

We received links to videos that highlight one of our seniors, Colin Harding. He was recognized in Washington D.C. last weekend for his volunteerism and community service.

It is impressive that he was able to provide a service to Children’s Hospital that continues to have a positive impact on teenage patients.

Colin is certainly one of our many outstanding students at BHS.

Senior Steel Center Students

BHS senior students who attend Steel Center will have their annual Senior Recognition Ceremony on Monday, May 16, in the CCAC south gymnasium at 7:00 PM. This is an opportunity for our students to be recognized for their time and training in their particular trade program.

This is not considered a, “graduation” from Steel Center and does not indicate the senior students are no longer required to attend Steel Center in the mornings. Our Steel Center seniors’ last day at Steel Center is the same as their last day at BHS – May 25, 2016 (excluding their attendance requirement at graduation practice May 26, 27, and June 1).

Congratulations to all of our seniors who are about to enter a new chapter in life.

Used Book Drive

If your house is cluttered with gently used books for kids in kindergarten through eighth grade, please consider donating them to the Lit Guild Book Drive to benefit Pittsburgh Carmalt School, a Pittsburgh public school in Brookline with a library that could use some help.

Books may be delivered to the high school until May 13, 2016.

Thanks!

Artwork Viewed by Congressman Tim Murphey

Natasha Yeso’s artwork submitted by request to Congressman Murphey’s office for temporary local display.

The piece is to represent our school district, so she decided to depict a family spending time together, having a picnic by the river to show the unique landscape and scenery of Pittsburgh. Natasha found a clever way to include a Steeler jersey and a Heinz ketchup bottle to further identify Pittsburgh.

Natasha is a junior.

Nice Artwork!
