Students being read to by Joe Pottstown Singled Out For Early Childhood Education Leadership Mercury 2-11-19
As the state budget season kicked off with the presentation of Gov. Tom Wolf's budget, early education advocates kicked off their efforts to ensure that budget funds pre-kindergarten education. For their setting, they chose the Learning Annex building on North Franklin Street where several of the Pottstown School District's Pre-K Counts classrooms are held. It is an easy program to support, said Schools Superintendent Stephen Rodriguez, because "it emotionally prepares students to deal with the world, and economically, it is the best way to invest in education."  Click Here to Read More.

the Girls of PHS wrestling team Girl Power: Female foursome in PAC proving wrestling isn’t just for the boys

They’re described by such terms as “pioneers” and “trailblazers. ”Some people consider them “inspirations.”
Others may consider them a “novelty.” But, first and foremost, they’re high school girls looking to establish their place in a sport that’s been almost exclusively a domain of manhood since the ancient Greeks competed in it at their Olympic games. Pottstown’s team has three girls who are a presence on the varsity roster: Zoe Earle, Julianna Figueroa, and Mia Bumbarger. Zoe and Julianna, both sophomores, wrestle at the lower end of the weight scale; and Mia is a freshman competing at 145. Click here to read their story
