Exploring a Kindergarten Center At Edgewood School

I would like to invite you to attend any of the three public meetings, which will be live-streamed for your convenience. The meetings will explore the possible reconfiguration of our school district to address ongoing concerns at the middle school. Last year, we contemplated the idea of a fifth grade center at The Edgewood School.

While still a viable option, we will now explore the idea of creating a kindergarten center at the former Edgewood Elementary School and making our elementary program first through fifth grade and returning the middle school to grades 6,7,8. If you would like to hear more about this proposal and provide feedback for board consideration, please attend any of the public meetings or to watch our Facebook live stream at Pottstown School District.

I am sending you an email of all meeting dates, times and locations. This information will also be listed on the website and will be open to all members of the Pottstown Community. Please click here to see the dates and times for these meetings.

Passion for the arts and a heart of gold leads to award

Since the age of three Pottstown High School Senior Emily Weber has had a passion for the preforming arts. Her passion along with a warm caring heart helped her earn the coveted Girl Scout Gold Award. The Gold Award is the highest honor in Girl Scouts. It is awarded to fewer than 6%of Scouts annually.

One of the requirements to earn this honor is to complete an 80 hour project where the scout demonstrates extraordinary leadership through a Take-Action project that has a sustainable impact in their communities. This project typically takes a scout 1-2 years to complete. Emily created, organized and taught a six week dance camp, named, Care to Dance? She partnered with Steel River Playhouse during the summer of 2018 to host the camp. She had over 45 students in grades 1st through 12th participate.

Age group classes were held twice a week, teaching a difference dance style each week. At the end of the program each attendee received a participation patch that Emily personally designed. Her efforts also helped to support the Steel River Playhouse. Emily received great feedback from students and parents alike, along with Steel River Playhouse staff who noted her dedication and passion for wanting to share the joys and value of dance.

Along with giving students an opportunity to try different styles of dance the program introduced families to the many programs available at Steel River Playhouse.
