Hang in there!

Cold, gray days make daily life seem even more difficult than it is. Set goals and chip away at them. There is definitely still time to make this a productive school year! The end of the first semester is Thursday, January 23, 2020. Students and their families can log into the Home Access Center and check grades and assignments. If there are any missing assignments, either make them up at home or the public library or make arrangements with teachers. This is the time of year when eighth graders are meeting with high school counselors and we want every student putting their best foot forward.

Always set aside time to read a book or a magazine. According to, when you read, your brain “lives” the experiences you read about and the language center in your brain increases. Your attention span grows and you become more empathetic. Wow! Find something to read at home, the public library, or visit Broughal’s library as soon as we return to school.

Rockets Need Launchpads

Mornings can be busy, especially as the weather turn colder and there are more warm clothes to put on. One way families can help is to have a launchpad for students to place their backpacks, Chromebooks (8th graders only), and coats, shoes or boots that will be put on to head to school. Preparing the night before makes the morning rush less stressful for everyone. Eighth grade families may want to plug Chromebooks in near their launchpads so they are charged and ready to go for the next school day.

“By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.”

Embrace Opportunities

As the school year progresses, we encourage all students to embrace opportunities to obtain school supplies, join activities, clubs and sports, and make the best of this school year!


We are grateful for everyone who makes it possible for our students to come to school every day, on time, ready to learn. We are also grateful for all of the cooperation that makes events like What’s So Cool About Manufacturing and The Little Mermaid such amazing opportunities for our students to develop and share their talents!

Thank you…

  • …students and families for making daily attendance a priority since you know the habit of attendance will help students do well in the classroom and in future jobs!
  • …teachers who make the classroom exciting so students will not want to miss out on learning.
  • …support staff and community volunteers who provide the extra attention our students need.

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.
