A field!

Thanks to a donation from Patient First, located at King Street and Shoemaker Road, Connie Nye, the creator of Sweet Water Education, was able to visit and present her program to the students.

The three-day program is called "Sweet Dream" and is looks at habitat, focused on the subject of animal habitats.

As part of the school's STEAM curriculum, it includes hands-on interactive activities such as field exploration, outdoor lessons, habitat songs and team scavenger hunts.

As one of the most under-funded school districts in Pennsylvania, Pottstown Schools reach out and take advantage of community partnerships to create learning opportunities for students.

Another reason to say Proud to be from Pottstown.
