Forging History & Community in Bethlehem - 2018
In an updated version from our 2016 video, field trips make the curriculum come alive for students. With the Foundation for the BASD's support, the BASD is in the multi-year process of establishing curriculum-based field trips for each elementary grade (approximately 1,000 students per grade). The two-hour field trip titled, Forging History and Community in Bethlehem takes BASD 5th graders to the Steel Stacks Campus to reinforce class concepts related to our nation's/city's industrial heritage as well as instill a new generation's pride in their city. The interaction among the students, teachers, and organizations so closely associated with the past and present of the city will promote a "common bond" among diverse populations of Bethlehem.
Both Liberty High School and Freedom High School's Proms were held at SteelStacks this year. Liberty High School's Prom took place on May 11, 2018, and Freedom High School's Prom took place on May 18, 2018.
