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.

Third graders elect their teacher ‘class president’

Posted on September 25th, 2017

Last week, my Ferguson third graders began learning about the process of elections and why voting is so important.

We read the story “Duck for President” a few times and discussed what makes a great leader. We decided to have an election for class president — me (Ms. Oxley) vs. Duck from the story.

The students made their voter registration cards and campaign posters, and I gave a speech. On voting day, we made a makeshift voting booth and the students lined up waiting to vote. Inside the booth was a ballot for them to vote on and once they were done, they were given an ‘I Voted’ sticker!

We had some older students count the ballots and I won the presidential class election!
