Dear Baldwin-Whitehall Community:
The District has received notice that Weyman Road in Whitehall will be closed from Baptist Road to Village Lane (behind Caste Village) beginning on Monday, September 25th though about mid November.
We expect this closure to directly impact our transportation schedules, not only for Harrison Middle School, Whitehall Elementary School and McAnnulty Elementary School, but for the other schools that our fleet serves as well since most of our buses travel the roads near the affected area at some point during the morning or afternoon routes.
The District has made efforts to adjust schedules and routes to minimize the impact of this closure, however we ask for you patience and understanding during this time. If buses are running more than 30 minutes late, SKYLERT messages will be used to communicate with the families.
While we regret this inconvenience, the long term goals will result in a safer community for everyone.
Randal A. Lutz, Ed.D.

Startable 2017 Recap
It was another wonderful year of Startable! This summer's rigorous eight week curriculum featured 14 maker courses and more than 20 entrepreneurship workshops. For the first time, we also piloted a music program that resulted in six students releasing their own debut album.
On August 17, the program culminated in a final event and showcase where students could premier their businesses to the community. The final event featured a market of student products, a pitch competition, and an album release party.
In two hours, the students made over $5000 at their market, almost twice the amount that was made during the 2016 market. This year's pitch competition awarded almost $2000 in cash prizes and featured six talented students laying out their business plans for investment. The winning pitcher, Dominique, created a bedroom set for African American young women promoting self-love.
The night wrapped with a live concert by our music cohort, which brought down the house with its energy and considerable talent. Check out the event coverage from the Pittsburgh Post Gazette and Remake Learning.
For many students, the summer was just the beginning of their business ventures. Check out our student business directory for links to active social media, shop and album pages where you can follow their journeys and purchase work.

You run a mile. You eat six donuts. And then you run another mile. Sunday, Oct. 1, at 10:30 a.m. in Schenley Plaza.
That's if you're in the competitive division of the Pittsburgh Donut Dash, a crazy and awesome fundraiser for the ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease) foundation Live Like Lou.
But don't panic: There's a "casual" division also: You run OR WALK a mile. You eat a donut or two IF you want to. You run OR WALK another mile.
Join Mr. Harrison and the Purbalite, Lit Guild, the Girls Volleyball Team, the Boys Soccer Team, the Special Olympics and Key Club members! Here's the scoop:
*This is NOT an official Baldwin event. Students will register on their own, and get their own transportation down to Oakland and back home.
*What does this thing look like? It's a flat, one-mile loop around Schenley Plaza. Check out photos below and here: http://www.pghdonutdash.org/the-event/
*How to register: https://pghdonutdash.crowdchange.co/fundraiser/476
*If you're interested, please send me an email at email@example.com so I can make a list of the teams, clubs, and classes participating.
