Recently, the Heritage Alliance provided third graders from Wescosville, Lincoln and Jefferson elementary schools in the East Penn School District with a hands-on history experience.
Students visited God’s Acre, the Shelter House, the Knauss Homestead and the 1803 House where volunteers directed them through a series of activities which exemplify life in early settlement and colonial times in Emmaus.
At God’s Acre, the site of Emmaus’s beginning, the children paced out the contours of the original church and participated in a scavenger hunt.
The East Penn School District Education Foundation recently celebrated “A Night for Innovation” at the Lehigh Country Club to support the innovator grant program.

Through this program, the foundation said they have the ability “to enrich, extend and deepen the educational experiences of East Penn School District students with an emphasis on science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics.”
