To the BASD Staff, Parents, Students, and Community
Welcome to the BASD e-News. A BASD education works to IGNITE curiosity and imagination, ENCOURAGE creative cooperation and individual growth, and EMPOWER leadership and global thinking. The e-News is designed to share events and activities going on in the BASD and the Lehigh Valley and show how we are #builtbybethlehem. It is our hope that you find it informative outlining BASD student and staff achievements, BASD opportunities, and area events taking place.
If you would like to acknowledge a student or staff member or share an upcoming event, please feel free to e-mail my executive assistant, Barbara Clymer, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
