Dear families:

I am incredibly excited to start my fourth year as Principal of the Intermediate and Middle School. Ms. Worman and I cannot wait to get to know your child as among our shared goals are to be visible, responsive, and available to meet the needs of our students as they embark on another school year. Working as a team toward your child’s success, we will communicate with our teachers, guidance counselors, and students to foster a welcoming and safe learning environment.

We are very excited to announce several new initiatives for the upcoming school year. This year our students will have the opportunity to participate in a year-long service project where we will partner with several schools in the Berks County region to assist a local animal shelter. We will also be continuing our Brandywine Heights Middle School: Google Classroom that will serve as a virtual resource to assist our students in character and resiliency development and we will continue to utilize the Too Good for Drugs Program to build these traits in our Intermediate School students. Among these initiatives, we are most excited to rollout our school-wide P.U.L.S.E plan, which focuses on the character traits of Pride, Unity, Leadership, Service, and Engagement and our focus on increasing mindfulness in practice to become more empathetic and caring individuals.

I consider the key to success at our school is a “commitment to character.” I firmly believe that a strong commitment to character will help your child be successful in their endeavors. I encourage students to work hard, be resilient in the face of challenges, and be humble in success. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns at: 610.682.5131 or Also, please follow our Facebook: and Twitter accounts at: @rfarina_BHASD and @cworman_BHASD for information, updates, and pictures.

Sincerely, Robert C. Farina
