Blogger's Note: A few items from around the Pottstown School District:

Pennies for Patients

Rupert Elementary had another great year with our Pennies for Patient fundraising campaign for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. 

The winning class, which raised $249.93 in memory of Andy Paravis and in honor of Jack Williams, was Mrs. Paravis's 2nd grade class. 

They earned a silver pennant to hang in their classroom and a pizza party. 

Three other classrooms raised more than $100 each. 

James Strohecker's 1st grade raised $187.42, Diana Dotterer's 4th grade raised $178.76, and Jacinda Bartolucci's 5K class raised $114.04, and they each will receive a bronze pennant. 

Rupert Elementary also earned a $100 gift card.

Student Jazz at Sunnybrook

The U.S. Army Band Jazz Ambassadors
The Pottstown High School Jazz Band will open for the US Army Jazz Ambassadors on Tuesday, April 14 at 7:30 p.m. at the historic Sunnybrook Ballroom.

Admission is free.

The high school band will perform from 7:30 to 8 p.m. and the U.S. Army Jazz Ambassadors will start performing about 8:15 p.m.

This is part of the Berks Jazz Festival and more information can be found at their web site:

De-Caffeinated Kids

Also at Rupert, the Java for Gents and Lattes for Ladies events attracted hundreds of parents who come in the early morning before school starts to spend some time reading to their children.

A good book for the students and some refreshments for the parents is a great way to start the day.
