Pottstown Schools Invites Parents of Young Kids

Blogger's Note: The following was provided by the Pottstown School District. 

The Pottstown School District wants to hear from Pottstown families with children elementary age and younger, what they need to better connect with other families, the schools and the community.

Families are invited to get connected at a new series of Let’s Talk community conversations.

This season the Let’s Talk community conversations will be held at each of the four elementary schools to make it easier for more families to come out and participate.

The conversation topic will be: Building Connections for Our Children. 

In addition to great conversation with other parents, Let’s Talk includes dinner, child care, raffles Spanish interpreters and children’s entertainment.

We invite you to come out, meet with other Pottstown School District families and share your thoughts on any of these dates:
Wednesday November 2, 5:30 to 7:30 at Elizabeth B. Barth Elementary School, 467 W. Walnut St
Thursday November 3, 5:30 to 7:30 at Franklin Elementary School 970 N. Franklin St
Monday November 7, 5:30 to 7:30 at Rupert Elementary School, 1230 South St or
Thursday November 10 from 5:30 to 7:30 at Lincoln Elementary School, 461 N. York St.

While the adults talk and network, children will be entertained with arts and crafts and story time by the Pottstown Regional Public Library and, new this year, Jeff Swider Magic Show. 

Mr. Swider is a Pottstown resident coming out of his magic show retirement just for this one time series of events so; you don’t want to miss the opportunity for your children to see this show.

And besides, your kids REALLY want to go.

Don't take our word for it, just ask them:

For this movement to be successful, Pottstown School District family participation from all social, cultural and ethnic groups is crucial. 

Your participation is valuable. We invite you to come out, 

Let’s Talk, have your voices heard and be part of Our kids…Their Future.

The Our kids…Their Future or Let’s Talk conversations are supported by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation and the University of Pennsylvania Penn Project for Civic Engagement. 

The grant has enabled the school district to work with the community-particularly families, as well as the local agencies and community leaders who serve them- to determine how the home school partnership can be strengthened, to find out what can be done to increase family participation and to improve support for ALL children’s growth and development from birth through elementary school.
