Ambler Bank donates to Teachers in the Park summer program
Boyertown Area School District students from Washington Elementary and Colebrookdale Elementary will be spending six weeks enriching their education this summer, thanks to a donation from Ambler Savings Bank. Roger Zacharia, president and CEO of Ambler Savings Bank, along with Retail Officer, Erin Cohen, and Ambler Savings Bank Trustee and President of the Foundation for Boyertown Education, Greg Herb, presented a check for $20,000 to the Foundation for Boyertown Education for the summertime program.
The Teachers in the Park program is the Boyertown Area School District’s summer learning program and will add a second location this summer at Bally Community Park, while also continuing the program at Boyertown Community Park. The program will run for six weeks and focuses on reinforcing skills learned during the school year. The locations provide a non-traditional learning environment that has enabled students to explore a broader curriculum scope.
Last summer, 38 students attended the Boyertown location. The district is hoping to have 50 or more students enrolled in the program this summer.
