These Trojans Are Invading Greece! (With Your Help)

Trojans! Let's get revenge for that sneaky horse trick, and send 

some of our own to Greece to wreak our revenge ... or at least
to learn something. To the Bingo Tables!
So as all of us who know our Homer know, the Greeks arrived on the shores of Troy bent on destruction and, after a few years of posturing and fighting, they slipped in the front door inside a horse.

Well, the Pottstown Trojans want their revenge.

So, they're invading Greece, but they can only do it with your help.

Pottstown High School students enrolled in either Advanced Placement U.S. Government and Politics or Advanced Placement Calculus classes are planning a trip to the place where democracy and mathematics got their start -- in ancient Greece.

But since the robotics team has not yet invented a time machine, they can't go to ancient Greece, but have to be satisfied with modern Greece.

The trip is in April, but more money needs to be raised to give these students, many of whom have never been out of the country or, for that matter, on an airplane, the experience of a lifetime.

Although they have already collected more than $4,000 in donations, more is needed and one way you can help is by showing up on Saturday, Feb. 8 at the high school cafeteria for a Bingo fundraiser.

There's something in it for you -- more than $4,000 in gift certificates, gift baskets and other prizes -- as well as the knowledge that you helped to broaden the horizons of students who are doing some of the best work in the district.

Contact information is listed in the flyer above.
