Blogger's Note: The latest from John Armato, director of community relations for the Pottstown School District.

Recently, the employees of Pottstown Community Health and Dental Care provided Barth Elementary students with the “tools for school.”

Representatives of the center distributed the packets which included folders, crayons, pencils, rulers, notebooks, and erasers to a representative group of students who they met in the school library.

Barth Principal Ryan Oxenford said, “it is rewarding to see all the happy faces on our students as they accept the supplies which they will be able to use both in the classroom and at home. Their academic success is dependent upon having all of the ‘tools for school’.”

Beth Desch, a representative from Pottstown Community Health and Dental Care, said, “we are very happy to be able to provide these supplies to our youngest citizens and hope that it helps prepare them for the future.” 

The donation of supplies was part of the National Health Center Week Celebration.
