All aboard the East Penn Learning Express! On Wednesday, May 8th, our senior citizens hitched a ride on the inaugural bus tour of the East Penn School District.
Our senior guests started their journey at Wescosville Elementary with a short concert from the Liberty Lane singers and bell choir. Our guests then toured WES where they learned about our solar system through augmented reality, watched students coding at their library makerspace, and got the chance to spend some time in a full day kindergarten classroom. Next stop was Eyer Middle School where our guests were able to tour the building all while testing their trivia knowledge about Eyer. Our last stop was Emmaus High School where everyone enjoyed a short presentation from our Project Lead the Way Civil Engineering students about their surveying project, toured an art class, and joined our students for a “Workout Wednesday” physical education class. The East Penn Learning Express pulled back into the station for lunch at the EPSD Administration Building.
We would like to thank everyone involved in making this tour a huge success! A special thank you goes out to Andrew and Danielle from STA for transporting our seniors on our tour today and Nutrition Inc. for feeding everyone a wonderful lunch.
We are so thankful to have such a supportive senior citizen community. We look forward to hosting this event again next year!
