Applause, Applause! -- We LOVE sharing good news!!

Recently, members of our Science Club participated in a virtual competition at the Philadelphia HS for Girls Science Olympiad Event. Our students did exceptionally well! Colin Murphy (Class of ‘21) earned a bronze medal in the area of Machines & Physics (3rd place overall in the 25-team field). Madison O’Neill (Class of ‘21) won the gold medal (1st place overall) in the area of Anatomy & Physiology! Madison’s gold medal is the first for Phoenixville in all the years Phoenixville has competed in these events. Congratulations to Colin, Madison & all of our students who participated!

Applause, Applause All-state musicians!!!

We also just learned that our two all-state musicians from last year (Xandro Xu and Katarina Lagodzinski) were accepted into the 2021 All-Eastern Virtual Ensembles. This is a great honor for them, as they will join approximately 700 other elite musicians in a virtual weekend music experience unlike any other. To read more, please click here.
