Knight News: March 26, 2018
10th and Green Elementary has a "Crayons to College" initiative, in which each grade level visits a local college. This way, every student will have visited all of the Berks County colleges - RACC, Penn State Berks, Albright, Alvernia and Kutztown - by the time they leave 5th grade. 🎓
Kudos to RHS staff member Sharon Rossignoli, who was recently featured in a Berks Teen Matters blog post.
Congratulations to Communications Director Kristin Boyd Edwards, who was named to Lehigh Valley Business' 2018 Forty Under 40 list.
High five for our RHS National Honor Society students, who volunteered at the Reading Recreation Commission's Easter Egg Hunt at 11th and Pike this weekend.
Grace Asberry Jones received national recognition for her years of service with the Reading School District, and her legacy continues to inspire us. Read about the late Mrs. Asberry Jones in a blog by the Berks Historical Society.
