We hope you are having a wonderful start to the school year! The Broughal staff is very excited to see all of our children and their families at school for the Southside Community Cultural Night on Tuesday, October 11th from 6-8pm.
Congratulations to Broughal’s Music Program!!!
The Music Department trip was wonderful and our students made us so proud! They brought home the following awards:
● Excellent Overall in Jazz Chorus
● Excellent Overall in Full Chorus
● Excellent Overall in Jazz Band
● Excellent Overall in Orchestra
● Superior Overall in Marching Band
● Esprit De Corps
This is the highest overall award !! Esprit De Corps is defined as “a common spirit of comradeship, enthusiasm, and devotion to a cause among the members of a group.”
Always we want to take time to thank our community partners for all they do to support Broughal families throughout the course of the school year. Just Born Inc., Lehigh University, St. Luke’s, and the United Way – working with you strengthens us immeasurably and we are truly grateful for your support.
Our focus continues to be on improving literacy and student achievement. This year we have restructured our English Language Arts program so that students have one class period devoted to a combination of reading and writing, and a discovery period where we can target the needs of each individual student. Students take assessments like Scholastic Reading and Math Inventories, Classroom Diagnostic Tools (CDT), Keystone Exams, WIDA, and Pennsylvania System School Assessment (PSSA) to identify areas of strength and weakness. Teachers are continually reviewing this data and using it to strengthen areas that need attention as we seek to challenge, inspire, and motivate Broughal students to maximize their potential. Parents are encouraged to contact their children’s teachers or guidance counselors to review performance data and help bolster their students’ achievement. Contact information for all staff members is available in our Staff Directory located under the School tab above.
