Over 150 elementary students in the Pottstown School District took part in the Olympics but they did not have to travel any further than the auditorium of Pottstown Middle School. Students participated in the 17th annual Pottstown School District’s Reading Olympics Competition. The Reading Olympics requires teams of students to read 45 books in preparation for the event. Each round of competition sees two opposing teams attempt to answer 20 questions given in rapid-fire fashion from the moderators. After a question is asked about a book, teams huddle to determine the correct answer. One point is awarded for each correct answer and Olympic ribbons are awarded for overall performance. The district teams qualify to compete in the annual Montgomery County Intermediate Unit competition which annually attracts over 500 teams and 7,000 participants.  

Pottstown girls, boys face off in Chopped Challenge, Reading Eagle 3-21-2017

By Holly Herman

Eriq Johnson could hardly wait to see what ingredients he and his teammates were getting to whip up a sandwich and a dessert Monday in the Chopped Challenge at Pottstown High School.

"I was baking all weekend with my mother," the 17-year-old junior said, waiting for Grumpy's fifth annual competition to start. "I really love cooking."

The boys were competing against the girls in Jackie Mathias' culinary class in the competition modeled after the popular reality television show, "Chopped," on the Food Network.The winning sandwich and dessert will be sold on the menu for a year at Grumpy's Handcarved Sandwiches, 137 E. High St.

The girls appeared to be starting at a disadvantage.

There were only two of them, but there were seven boys.
