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.

Pre-K class celebrates diversity with family at Devers

Posted on February 13th, 2017

Ms. Reed and Ms. Erskine’s Pre-K class at Devers is about to complete a month long theme on Daily Life in Many Lands. During the unit the students learned different types of dances, listened to different kinds of music, looked at maps of our world, and we learned where each other was from.

They learned that people can be very different from us, yet they all still do the same things, like eating and taking care of their families.

We invited our students’ families to come in and  to share different types of foods in a Culture Day party. Our families are from all over the world — Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Ghana, Mexico, Vietnam, and U.S.

The kids had lots of food to taste test, including flan, bean pie, sweet potato pie, eggrolls, rice and beans and more.
