The Pottstown parish grade school welcomed the public to its Open House Jan. 29 to celebrate Catholic education. The students showcased their achievements in “Project Lead the Way,” an innovative program that introduces STREAM (Science, Technology, Religion, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) curriculum to students as early as preschool. During the Open House teachers showed how they incorporate STREAM projects into classrooms. Older students demonstrated their complex projects while younger students completed simple lessons to start their introduction to engineering, design principle and science learning. St. Aloysius School is located at 220 North Hanover Street in Pottstown, and enrolls 241 students. (Photos by Sarah Webb, except where noted.)
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
