Culinary Creations!

Students in our Culinary Classes made these projects before the holiday break. The designs are on display in the case near the cafeteria.

The members of each class were challenged with designing the house and theme, making templates for the dough, cutting and baking, and decorating. Everything was done from scratch with food items only.

Second place team: Win Aung, Amanda Martin, Trevon Wilder, Danny Hall, Chase Mitchell, Tommy Mowers, Bishnu Adnikari and a little help and guidance from Ms. McGough & Mrs. Sikora.

BHS Artists Recognized!

Twenty-one of our students have been recognized by the Alliance for Young Artists & Writers through the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards.

This is a remarkable achievement and milestone for these young artists. A panel of twelve artists, art educators, and art professionals selected our students’ artwork as the best work submitted by the Pittsburgh Arts Region’s Teens.

Entries of completed registered artwork in the Pittsburgh region totaled 1,846.

WOW! We couldn’t be more proud!

Here’s a link to check out their work:

Outstanding work!

Baldwin Highlander Choir students Stephen Tsambarlis and Scott Friedman performed at PMEA District Chorus this past Saturday.

Stephen qualified for the Regional Level and will be performing at Trinity High School in the PMEA Region I Festival next month.



Second Semester Schedules

In an effort to save paper, we are asking students to view their second semester schedule on-line prior to Wednesday, January 21, when they return to school after the extended Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend.

Students who do not have access to a computer outside of school may stop in the guidance office or main office on Wednesday morning to obtain a copy of their second semester schedule.

Go Fighting Highlanders!


How did She Ask you to the dance?

We started a “HOW DID SHE ASK YOU TO THE DANCE?” Campaign on Twitter & are asking students to send pictures to @BHSActivities & share their story! #SadiesSnowBallBHS2015

We will also display the pictures that are sent to Twitter during the dance so everyone can see the variety of ways people were asked on a BIG screen.

Remember, the Snowball Dance is on Saturday, January 31, from 7:00 PM to 10:00 PM.

Tickets are on sale during all lunch periods.

See you there!


PMEA District Band!

Over the weekend, five Baldwin students participated in PMEA District Band at North Allegheny HS:

Sarah Dillinger, Clarinet
Rachael Lane, Baritone
Malia Mueller, Clarinet
Kevin Skinkis, Trumpet
Laura Stumpf, Flute

During the district festival, our students had the chance to work with Ralph Ford, a nationally recognized composer and music educator.

Additionally, as part of the festival our students had the chance to audition for PMEA Region Band, to be held on February 11-13 at Hickory HS in Hermitage, PA.

Laura Stumpf placed third chair in her audition and will play Flute 1 at Region Band.

Congratulations to Laura and to all of our students for representing us so well!


Sadies Snowball Dance – Saturday, January 31, 7:00 PM

Since our Homecoming Dance was such a HUGE success, we are now planning for our winter Sadies Snowball Dance. (Sadies Dance is a setting where girls typically ask boys to the dance)

The dance will be held in the high school gym and we encourage all students to come and join in the fun on Saturday January 31, 2015. It begins at 7:00 PM and ends at 10:00 PM.

Tickets will be on sale during all lunch periods starting January 12th through January 30, and will be $10.

This is a nice way for our students to spend a nice cold winter evening.

Go Highlanders!


Junior Achievement Opportunity

We are pleased to announce that Baldwin High School will be participating in the new JA Company Program.

Dennis Gilfoyle, who is the President of Junior Achievement of Western PA, has graciously donated his time and offered to run the program here with Mrs. Reynolds at Baldwin. It is an entrepreneurship program.

Basically we are starting our own company, will create a product that we will sell, and run our business. Students will pick everything and run the business. JA of Western PA is also donating a $200 startup fee for our company.

Dennis will be here on Wednesday, January 21, during both 7th and 8th periods to meet with any students who would like to get more information. Because this will be a company and we will be electing our board of directors and our financial person and creating our logo and product, we will need your commitment to attend the program if you decide to join. We are hoping to get between 15-20 students in our company.

We will require at least 80% attendance and you must keep up with all of your classes. We have not decided on which day of the week as of yet, but the plan as of right now is to meet weekly after school from 2:30 – 4:30 between January and the end of April. This is a fantastic opportunity to learn all about how to create and run a business like an entrepreneur.

This is a great resume builder and will be a huge asset to any of you looking to go into the business field. Participating in JA Company program will be an advantage to you if you are applying for college to get into a competitive business program.

Mark your calendar and come either 7th or 8th period on Wed January 21. We will start the program the following week. Email Mrs. Reynolds with any questions: [email protected]
