    Books

    Promoting and encouraging literacy and a love of reading is an important goal at Pottsgrove and we are proud to be a part of that by sponsoring the prizes for the Reading Department's 100 Book Club. Kids who read at least 100 books by the beginning of May are recognized at the annual Awards Day assembly and earn a special tee shirt (or a $5 gift card, if they choose). The top 10 readers receive an extra-special prize. Get started with a reading log today!

     


    We show how much our staff and teachers mean to us with appreciation luncheons. We also support our staff with teacher stipends ($75 for classroom teachers, $40 for specials), as well as purchasing items for the classrooms like reading rugs, books, and supplies.
