Save the date!! The Bethlehem Area School District wants you to mark your calendar for October 15th, 2017, where we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the opening of Freedom High School.
EYE ON ELEMENTARY: Freemansburg Elementary
The Bethlehem Area School District has 16 elementary schools, all in different locations, but all giving the same first class education. Every few weeks we focus on a new school and take a minute to show you what makes the school the special place that it is.
Today we take a look at Freemansburg Elementary school with principal Michael Alogna.
