An Act of Kindness Unmasked

William Penn teacher Patty Buzby (right photo) has been busy translating all district communications into Spanish during this unprecedented health crisis, but she didn't stop there. Mrs. Buzby sewed beautiful face masks for our dedicated team of workers and volunteers in the Nutrition and Transportation Divisions who've worked tirelessly to provide meals for Colonial students. Thanks, Patty Buzby for showing Who WE are! 

Wilbur Wildcats Learning at Home

Wilbur students have been posting photos of them doing voluntary learning at home. These kids are truly an inspiration as they can stay connected with their teachers and classwork despite any obstacle.

Spirit Days Continue Online

In an effort to bring some normalcy and fun for students at home, schools like Eisenberg and Wilmington Manor held Spirit Week. Superhero Day was a big hit, especially for Principal Dave Distler pictured on the left with his son!
