Thank you and Goodbye

Thank you to the Baldwin-Whitehall School District, Baldwin High School, and the entire Baldwin-Whitehall community.

It has been a true pleasure serving as Principal of the high school for the past six years. In my 31 years in education and throughout my experiences in several school districts in both south-central and southwestern PA., – the students, staff, and community of the BWSD are truly the NICEST!!

Thanks to everyone for the chance to work with you, and please know that I will always fondly remember my time as a Fighting Highlander.

I will miss the people the most.

Be well, and remember – Once a Fighting Highlander, always a Fighting Highlander!

With Warm Regards,
Walt Graves (Retired) 🙂

BHS – Business as usual on Final Day – Safe and Secure

In an effort to sustain open and transparent communication, this message is to inform and stop any inaccurate rumors from being spread.

A situation that began on social media over the weekend was brought to the attention of the BHS administration yesterday. The BHS administration immediately investigated and determined the information was unsubstantiated.

There was never a threat to the safety or well-being of anyone at our school.

We will continue to operate under, “business as usual” conditions during these final two days of school.

Good luck to our underclassmen as they take their final exams.

Graduation Ceremony Preparation and Safety Precautions

We are excited to celebrate the Class of 2019 during our traditional Graduation Ceremony that will begin in our stadium at 7:00 PM.

We will follow the same safety precautions during our graduation ceremony that we implement during our athletic events and programs that are held in our stadium throughout the year.  All bags will be checked before spectators are permitted to enter the gates; and open beverage containers will not be permitted into the stadium.

We are also emphasizing the restriction of any noise-makers, horns, drums, musical instruments, etc. during the ceremony in order to maintain the dignity of our graduation program.  The restriction of noise-makers also ensures that the names of all of our graduates are able to be heard and appreciated.

We look forward to a beautiful evening tomorrow night as we celebrate our graduates!

Congratulations Class of 2019!

BHS Competitive Cheer Routine – Rebroadcast

Good News!

Our BHS Competitive Cheerleaders will be showcased on ESPN U performing their “Nationals Competition” that took place in Florida a few weeks ago. The broadcast is scheduled to air this Saturday, at 9:00 am on the ESPN U channel.

BTW – Only the top teams that earned a metal are slated to have their routines shown, so the re-broadcast of the event is a pretty big deal for Baldwin High School and our cheer program.

Congratulations, BHS Competitive Cheer Team! We are VERY proud of you!
