Details about response to accident involving district school bus

This morning, a bus transporting students from William Penn Senior High School to the Edgar Fahs Smith STEAM Academy was involved in an accident. Six students were transported to the hospital for assessment of possible injuries. As of 3 p.m., each of the students had been treated and released from the hospital. The driver of the school bus was also transported to the hospital. All other students on the bus were evaluated by school nurses.

The school district contacted parents of the affected students and will report more information to the public when it is available. The safety and well-being of our students is always our top priority. We appreciate the community’s support and patience as we continue to investigate.

1st and 2nd graders build academic stamina at Davis

Posted on September 11th, 2017

student readingFirst and second grade students at Davis have been learning about building stamina in reading and math. In reading, students are reading to themselves for longer periods of time. We have discussed and modeled the three ways to read and the difference between “real” reading and “fake” reading.students studying in classroom

In math, students are working in cooperative learning groups and applying new skills, through games and manipulatives. In writing, students are learning to increase their stamina by writing for longer periods of time. They are also learning new writing strategies to increase the details in their writing.
