The Boyertown Area Times - - LOCAL NEWS - From Am­bler Sav­ings Bank

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.
