Details About William Penn Senior High School Evacuation

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.

Ferguson K – 8

STEAM wows with Willy Wonka

Posted on May 24th, 2017

Congratulations to the 6th, 7th and 8th grade students of the Ferguson STEAM program! These students were fabulous in their performances of “Willy Wonka” this weekend.

Also, we’re sending a big THANK YOU to the 7th and 8th graders of the STEAM program who have been busy sharing their experiences with students throughout the district. These students have helped district staff promote the Academy by demonstrating engineering projects and talking about choice-based art.

In August, the district is expanding the STEAM program to Edgar Fahs Smith School for grades 3-8.
