BASD Techfest 2015, Saturday, May 2nd - The public is invited to our BASD Tech Fest. At the Tech Fest, we will be showcasing BASD student projects from the elementary, junior high, and senior high. Prior to the showcase, keynote speaker, Dr. Lodge McCammon, will discuss his version of the efficient and engaging flipped classroom. You are invited to attend both the keynote address and the showcase. See the attachment for more details.
Dance Marathon Update - Unfortunately due to the weather, we will be postponing the Dance Marathon until next Friday, March 27th. The time frame for the day will not change. It will still begin at 1:00 and end at 9:00. There will be a dance for all students beginning at 6:30. The closing ceremony will be at 8:00.
Students who were unable to sign-up on March 20th due to a scheduling conflict may participate on March 27th. They just need to understand we won’t be able to get them a t-shirt because they have already been ordered. We would love to have them join us.
We are also going to have another Spirit Week to keep up the momentum for the Dance Marathon. Monday will be: Sports Team Day- show off your favorite team!
I would like to thank everyone for their flexibility and efforts. We have had many people work extremely hard to prepare for the Marathon. Postponing will take additional effort on their part and I want them to know how much I (and the students) appreciate it.

Sports Pick-up After School- Unfortunately, our athletic fields are not available to our athletic teams because of their soft conditions. The teams have worked together to utilize the large parking lot at West in addition to the gymnasiums. However, this situation has made pick-up at 5:00 very difficult. Beginning Thursday March 20th, we will have our athletes picked-up on the other side of the building (where morning drop-off is.) Hopefully, this will alleviate some of the congestion. We will continue to monitor the situation and especially hope for dry weather so that we can begin to use the fields. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
End of Third Quarter, Wednesday, April 1st - The last day of the third quarter is now Wednesday, April 1st. Reports will be distributed during flex period homeroom on Wednesday, April 15th.
Facebook - In an effort to stay connected to our parents, guardians, families, and community members, Junior High West is now on Facebook. Please “Like” our page to get updates and news all things West!
All girls lacrosse teams practice will be cancelled for today.
Morning Drop-off Procedures - We are having some problems with our morning drop-off procedures. I am asking everyone to work together for the safety of our students. I have attached a map to help everyone understand how they should drop-off their children.
I appreciate everyone's help with this.
Greg Galtere, JHS West Principal
Morning Drop-off Procedures - Please enter through the entrance across from Boyertown Park. Drive all the way to the back parking lot, turn around and then drop your children off on the sidewalk. If your child is here for a study session, he or she can enter the building early through the 80s or 90s hallway entrance.We have a lot of traffic here in the morning during a small window of time. We appreciate everyone’s help in keeping our students safe.
