Students Make Birthday Meaningful

Keep calm and bring on the birthday gifts? No, thanks. I'd rather relay and change the world.
A group of elementary students representing North Coventry and French Creek Elementary Schools attended a birthday party for North Coventry student, Paige Zebley, grade 3. Of her own accord, Paige, for the second year in a row, requested that in lieu of gifts, students donate to a charity. The generosity of the families allowed a $200 donation to the Relay for Life of Pottstown Team North Coventry Cancer Busters & Fight On Makenna. In the spirit of celebrating birthdays as milestones in life, Paige and her friends marked a special occasion in a truly meaningful way.

East Coventry Can't Stop the Feeling

East Coventry Elementary School celebrated good character traits today opening the assembly with this video.

National Ally Week

The high school Gay Straight Alliance celebrated Ally week September 26-30. Ally week is about diversity and living in harmony. An Ally is someone who actively supports those who may be marginalized and who are not in the group for which they identify. According to, "Ally Week is an opportunity for students to engage in a national conversation about the meaning of allyship. Ally Week is for everyone: straight and cisgender allies to LGBT youth are encouraged to learn about what actions they can take to support their LGBT peers, while LGBT youth can learn about how to support one another's overlapping, intersecting identities."
