Artworks - 127 Days
The Bethlehem Area School District has absolutely incredible talent in its theater companies, from the high school level, all the way down to its elementary groups.
In October 2018, BASD Media cameras began following along as the Northeast Theatre company began its journey producing The Lion King Jr., and what it takes to put on a show of that magnitude.

Healthy Tips from Michelle Martucci, RD, LDN
Dietitian for Bethlehem Area School District
The ABC Tips - Q
Quinoa is a complete protein, which means it contains all nine amino acids our body cannot make. Quinoa contains fiber, which promotes good digestion and will help you stay full longer. It contains a high amount of lysine, which is needed for tissue growth and repair. Quinoa is a great source of antioxidants, which helps to prevent some cancers. In addition, quinoa contains heart healthy fats, which are known to be cardio-protective. There are 120 varieties of quinoa. Try quinoa as a side dish, in stuffed peppers, or add it to a cold salad.
