Boyertown Area School District Students Win Reading Eagle Holiday Contest

We are proud to announce that three Boyertown Area School District students have recently been published in the Reading Eagle as part of their annual Gifts of Christmas contest. Sixth grade students Noah Goldberg, Gilbertsville Elementary School; Kati Kochen, Boyertown Elementary School; and Audrey Martignetti, Pine Forge Elementary School, wrote and submitted essays featuring their fondest holiday wishes. The Reading Eagle selected ten essays of the 75 that were submitted to publish.  Noah, Kati, and Audrey were part of the ten sixth grade students selected from local Berks County school districts. There were a total of 75 essays submitted. While there were no prizes given, the Reading Eagle made a $100 donation in the name of each
