Lehigh Carbon Community College
Lehigh Carbon Community College has announced the students with an academic grade point average of at least 3.50, who were named to the summer 2019 semester Dean’s List. They are, from Bethlehem, Jonathan Fitzmaurice, Jennifer Gross, Stephenie Mathis, Ashley Sabol, Rebecca Siegfried, Destiny Soto, Kate Taylor, Katey Vandergrift and Joanna Vazquez; from Fountain Hill: Mark Crimaldi; and from Hellertown: Jillian Beck.
Five Crossing Guards serve the neighborhood around Thomas Jefferson ES. The crossing guards are employees of the Bethlehem City Police Department. Many of Thomas Jefferson’s students walk to and from school, and the crossing guards keep them safe at some of North Bethlehem’s busiest intersections. Some of the guards also cross students from Northeast MS and other local schools. They know many of the students by name, and with almost 95 years of combined experience, they know some of the students’ parents and grandparents too.
For some, Aug. 26 was a daunting experience: their first day of school ever. For others it was the first day of their last year at St. Anne’s ES.
A warm welcome awaited all 270 students from Father Anthony Mongiello, Principal Karen Bentz and teachers from kindergarten to eighth grade.

Any other time of year, the street between Broad and the Central Moravian Church is known as Main Street. However, during Musikfest, the street becomes a venue named Provident Bank Main Street. It has all the fanfare that Main Street traditionally has plus performing stages for concerts, street vendors, buskers and music as far as the ears can hear. One of the groups performing routinely on Provident Bank Main street this year, was a group of current Liberty HS students and alumni who called themselves the Orbital Drumline.
