Dear Parents/Guardians of 5th Grade Students,


Congratulations! Your child is about to begin the transition from 5th grade to 6th grade and join us at Nitschmann Middle School for the 2020-2021 school year.  At Nitschmann Middle School, we are extremely excited to welcome your child to our school!


We will be hosting three parent/guardian webinars on Zoom for incoming 6th-grade parents & guardians. This is a great way to hear right from Dr. Mayes & Mr. Horlick about all of the opportunities for your child next year, review our transition plan, and hear about our 100th Anniversary Celebration next year! Please click on the date to access the link for webinar registration: January 24 @ 7pm; January 26 @ 7pm, & January 28 @ 7pm .


Please find all of these dates and information on our Nitschmann Middle School website at https://basdwpweb.beth.k12.pa.us/nitschmann/ or on our social media sites on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram! Please look for our Sunday emails, posted to our website, for up-to-date information. You can also start receiving Nitschmann Middle School messages by downloading the BASD app from your smartphone app store and adding Nitschmann Middle School as one of your contact schools. This is the best way to get information quickly!


We look forward to meeting with you and your child to make their transition to middle school a “roaring” success!
