These posters identify some of the many reasons...
Jamie Fazekas has a class of third graders at Rupert Elementary School who know how to show that they are proud to be from Pottstown.

As part of a lesson in community awareness, students made posters stating why they loved Pottstown. 

 At the conclusion of the lesson, the hallway outside the classroom proclaimed, “Why Room 207 Loves Pottstown.”

Included in their many reasons to have pride and love in Pottstown, were:

Ø Fourth of July Fireworks

Ø Maple Street Park

... students in Room 207 love Pottstown.
Ø Restaurants like Ice House Deli and Tornetta’s


Ø Big hills for sledding

Ø Parades

Ø Places to shop on High Street

Ø PAL Sports

The class proudly wore their “We Are Pottstown” tee-shirts for a class picture.

Rupert Principal Matt Moyer said, “It was outstanding to see Ms. Fazekas and her students display their Pottstown pride. I enjoyed reading the variety of reasons why they are proud of their hometown. I look forward to the day that these young people will become the new leaders of our community and give us more reason to say, ‘Proud to be from Pottstown.’”

Everyone in Mrs. Fazeka's class (even John Armato) wore their 'Pottstown Pride' T-shirts.
