100 and Counting
Congratulations to Trojan football player Dereck Darden, who, with a huge sack in the Trojan victory against Springfield High School in the District I playoff game recorded his 100th career varsity tackle. This year the Junior Middle Linebacker has almost doubled the number of tackles from last season. Going into the championship game with Pottsgrove he has recorded 69 tackles, 8 tackles for a loss, 2 big hits, 1 sack, 1 forced fumble, 1 pass deflection, and 10 QB pressures. Offensively as the Trojan Fullback, Dereck has 3 passes for 66 yards with 1 receiving touchdown and for 231 yards on 34 carries with 1 rushing touchdown Dereck has started every game since week 4 his sophomore year. His hard work is paying off and gives us another reason to say Proud to be from Pottstown.

Superintendent Rodriguez: Can guns make our schools safer?
For many students, parents and politicians, the school shooting in Parkland, Florida, was a wake-up call on just how vulnerable schools can be to major acts of violence. So we begin again the public square debate on all the questions that keep coming up since as far back as the Columbine shooting in 1999.
Hooray for a BEAUTIFUL day!!! Mrs. Swartz and her 2nd grade class at Lincoln made their way outside to the Outdoor Classroom to work on their long and short "U" skills. Thanks to all the volunteers who helped design and build the outdoor classroom, they gave us another reason to say Proud to be from Pottstown.
