Full STEM Ahead – Environmental Science

Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics….in the BASD we nurture it all…and all with some of the finest, most committed teachers in Pennsylvania. Full STEM Ahead is a series put out by the BASD, which focuses on new topics for our younger students exploring STEM ideas, presented by some of our finest teachers.

In today’s video, FHS AP Environmental Science teacher Mr. Baltz as he takes time out and shows how high school students conduct research impacting the Lehigh Valley.

Eye on 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 William Penn Elementary school with principal Eric Fontanez.

Healthy Tip from Michelle Martucci, RD, LDN

Dietician for Bethlehem Area School District

Avoid words like “never” or “bad” with foods. Instead discuss that some foods are “sometimes” foods since they are not as healthy for us to eat as “everyday” foods such as fruits and vegetables.

Baseball Umpires Needed

Bethlehem Umpires Association (BUA) is actively taking applications for baseball umpires! Whether you are an experienced umpire, or looking to break into the game as a rookie, we have the appropriate level for you.

We offer a competitive level of play for all levels of experience and the opportunity to umpire throughout the greater Lehigh Valley area. Our organization officiates over 1500+ games for Little League, Travel Teams, Connie Mack, Youth Legion, and LVMSBL (Men’s League) from April until November.

Take your passion for sports and turn it into a part time avocation that will enable you to give back to the community. We accept members starting at 16 and offer education, training and mentorships to improve your skills and obtain higher level games as you gain more experience.

If you are an experienced umpire and you would like to try to get involved in a group we would love to hear from you.

We meet the 3rd Tuesday of each month from February through September, contact us today through our website ( or email us at for more information! We look forward to speaking with you soon about umpiring for the BUA.
