Senior Class Group Photo – pick-up information

Members of the Class of 2014 may stop by the high school office to pick up their copy of the group photo of the Senior Class in caps and gowns.

This is a new tradition that was started this year.   The photos were purchased through the senior class funds and each member of the class is entitled to a copy.

Have a safe summer!



Dear Baldwin High School Students and Parents,

Thank you for a terrific school year!  We are looking forward to another great one next year, too!

Please remember the students’ schedules sent home on the last day of school were tentative.  There may be some adjustments made to our Master Schedule throughout the summer to ensure balanced sections in the fall.  All students will receive a new, updated schedule on the first day of school that should include the same original courses listed on the tentative schedule.  Every student’s schedule must include all four core subject areas.  If it does not, please contact the guidance office.

ALL SCHEDULE CHANGE REQUESTS FROM STUDENTS MUST BE MADE BY JUNE 30, 2014.  Please contact our guidance office to make an appointment with a counselor 412-885-7500 ext. 8062 if there is a concern.

Have a safe and happy summer!

Mr. Graves

ps – there will be updates and information shared on this blog throughout the summer when it become available.

Students at the high school will be dismissed at 11:00 today.  A “grab and go” lunch will be served prior to 11:00 for all students.

Go Highlanders!!!!


Class of 2014

Congratulations to the Class of 2014 who had a beautiful Commencement Ceremony last evening!

Here are some pictures from graduation at Baldwin High School – Class of 2014.


Graduation is On!

The weather looks like it is going to cooperate with us this evening, so we are moving forward with our plans to hold the event tonight, June 3.

Seniors are to be at the high school in the small gym by 6:00 PM.  Commencement will begin at 7:30 PM.

We look forward to seeing everyone here tonight.

Go Highlanders!


Graduation 2014

This is an exciting time of the year at Baldwin High School with the graduation of the Class of 2014 scheduled for today, and all of the end-of-year celebrations just a few days away.

As we prepare for commencement, we want to make sure our senior class, their parents, and families know the steps we are taking to hold our ceremony outside and maximize the number of spectators we can accommodate in the stands of our stadium.

It is our primary goal to hold our graduation ceremony outside as long as the weather cooperates.  This will enable us to welcome almost an unlimited number of spectators comfortably in the bleachers and on the grounds of the stadium; however, if the weather is wet then we will need to postpone the ceremony until Thursday, June 5.  The decision to shift the ceremony from Tuesday night to Thursday night will be made by no later than 3:00 PM on Tuesday, June 3.

If the weather continues to present issues for us to hold an outdoor graduation celebration on Thursday, then we will move the ceremony to the gymnasium Thursday evening.  Again, the decision to change the venue from the stadium to the gym will take place no later than 3:00 PM on Thursday, June 5.

Please know that we are very much aware that some of the family members of our graduates will be traveling in from out-of-town, and as we plan for the best, we must also prepare for the worst.  We will attempt to hold graduation outside on Tuesday or Thursday evening before we make the final decision to move it indoors on Thursday.  Again, the latest time for us to make the decisions will be at 3:00 PM.

In the event that the ceremony is moved to the gymnasium, we will have graduation broadcasted through closed-circuit television that will air in the auditorium.  This will allow for an overflow of spectators who may watch the event on the large screen and in comfortable seats.  Each graduate received three tickets during practice that will enable three of their family members to gain access to seats in the gym.  All additional spectators may watch the program in the auditorium or on their computer from home since it will be live-streamed through our district website.

Please monitor this blog, the district website, and also prepare to receive a Skylert message regarding any changes in the dates and location of the graduation ceremony of the Class of 2014.

We are very proud of our seniors and we are looking forward to a terrific send-off today or Thursday evening.

Go Highlanders!
