Beth McClelland Lutostansky '88 Speaks About Career in Energy Industry
Beth McClelland Lutostansky '88 recently presented to a packed house of upper schoolers––including those in the Environmental Science class and the STEMinist Club––on her career in the energy industry.
Since completing graduate school, Beth has worked as an engineer for Air Products in Allentown, Pennsylvania. She spoke of her firm's efforts to reduce carbon dioxide emissions and how increased use of renewable energy will impact emissions globally. Students learned about how hydrogen fuel cells will power trucks and buses in the near future. They also learned about carbon sequestration and cryogenic air separation.
As a student at WFS, Beth especially enjoyed math and science. She talked to the students about the importance of networking and being active in professional associations.

Fifth graders had a great adventure in New York City! They visited the Tenement Museum where they learned more about the immigrant and migrant experience, enjoyed lunch at Madison Square Park, and then went to the National Museum of Mathematics where they participated in activities to illuminate the joy of math!
From preschoolers to fifth graders, our lower school students had a blast this week at their Field Days! They played soccer, ran through obstacle courses, practiced their archery skills, and stayed cool with plenty of water games!
Lower school students again participated in Big Bang of the Books, a reading club shared across WFS, Tatnall, and Tower Hill that includes more than 170 students! The year culminates with a fun spring gathering where students participate in challenges, and this year they got to Zoom with author Gordon Korman, who wrote "The Fort," which was voted favorite book by the students.
Congratulations to our 7th and 8th grade band and choir members who traveled to Hershey Park for the Music in the Parks Festival, where they received a first place, superior rating for band and a first place, excellent rating for choir!
The middle school Asian Affinity Group traveled to the lower school to read stories to students that highlighted Asian history or protagonists. Lower school students loved meeting the middle school students, listening to the stories, and learning more about Asian heritage.
Members of the Eco Team met with representatives from Practical Energy Solutions, who had recently completed an energy audit and assessment at WFS, to review their recommendations on how as a school we can improve lighting and internal loads, plumbing and hot water use, our HVAC systems, and increase our solar energy potential. The Eco Team will use these findings to help implement energy solutions across the school.
One of the favorite traditions of senior year at WFS is time spent with first grade buddies. Juniors got a jumpstart on this before the school year ends, meeting with their buddies (current kindergarteners) and having a blast! They can't wait to spend more time together next year.
