At Broughal Middle School, summer is a time of both rejuvenation and opportunity. Broughal students are invited to attend Broughal Rocket Summer Learning Academy from June 19th to July 27th (Monday through Thursday only) 8:30 AM – 12:30 PM. During summer camp, students will participate in a variety of fun and engaging science, math, and literacy activities. Both breakfast and lunch will be served daily. An OPTIONAL recreation program will be offered in the afternoon to all students enrolled in the morning program. Information regarding these opportunities will be provided when the student receives his/her acceptance letter.
BASD Parent Survey is Now Open
Attention Parents!!! Broughal could use your help with trying to find better ways to serve our students and families. All you need to do is complete the 2017 School Improvement Survey for Middle School Parents.
Always we want to take time to thank our community partners for all they have done to support Broughal families throughout the course of this 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.
