Saturday Detentions

The language arts students of Team 7A from William Penn Middle School recently visited Popcorn Park Zoo in Forked River, New Jersey. This trip, organized by teacher Leslie Ettlinger and the rest of team 7A, was in direct correlation with the language arts curriculum. In the newly-adopted Houghton Mifflin Harcourt book series, the students read the newspaper article called “Difference Maker: John Bergmann and Popcorn Park.” The animal sanctuary began in 1977 and is a federally licensed zoo nestled in the Pinelands of New Jersey that caters to distressed wildlife and exotic and domesticated animals.** Pictures include the manager, John Bergmann with Mrs. Ettlinger and students of 7A; Seven, a horse that was saved from starvation.

Welcome to William Penn Middle School. We are a middle school for grades sixth, seventh, and eighth graders with a population of approximately one thousand students and a very talented faculty and support staff. Our goal is to meet the educational and developmental needs of all our students. To help create smaller, more intimate learning communities, our students are placed on "Teams" with approximately 110 to 125 students and either four or five teachers for the year. William Penn is a supportive and friendly place where students can find their niche, gracefully take on daily academic challenges, get involved in activities and develop as they transition from children to young adults. Most of our students come from the four sending elementary schools within the district; Afton, Makefield, Oxford Valley and Penn Valley. Parents are encouraged to become involved in our Parent/Teacher Organization that meets monthly.

The Pennsbury School District, a student-centered learning community, will prepare all students to achieve their highest potential and to demonstrate mastery of skills and talents necessary for life in a global society by providing a diverse educational program with the involvement and support of families and community.
