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.)
