Police are questioning a person of interest related to the threat, and classes resumed on Monday with added police presence.
Warminster police combed the grounds of William Tennent Sunday night after an e-mail to school administrators indicated a bomb threat at the high school. No devices have been found, and investigators are questioning a person of interest. Police determined that the e-mail was a non-credible threat and school officials allowed classes to resume as scheduled Monday morning. "Rest assured that I would not have permitted faculty, staff, or students to enter the building if there were any reason for alarm," Centennial Superintendent Dr. Jennifer Cressman wrote in a statement. "The Warminster Police are to be commended for how quickly and decisively they acted upon being notified."

The high school auditorium had a game show atmosphere as each team tried to outsmart the other.
It's not every day you see a crowded auditorium filled with teenagers cheer ferociously over a game of chess. When the player for the Black Jedi scored a checkmate in the speed chess round, his teammates erupted as if he had just swished the game-winning shot. Every point counts during the three-day Black and White Night competition at William Tennent High School, and victories like these will help the Black Team repeat as champions. "That's the great thing about the academic part of Black and White Night," said Brian Bassler, an English teacher at Tennent. "Students who aren't on an athletic team get to hear their names chanted. It's a great feeling to experience." Before the students flex their muscles on Pool Night and Gym Night, they …

It was a night of memories for the graduating class, as they prepare for their future adventures.
The seniors at William Tennent High School were more than ready to dance and celebrate Friday night at the school’s 2011 senior prom in Ivyland. The prom was held at the Spring Mill Country Club from 7 p.m. to midnight and included the usual prom staples such as a techno-club-lit dance floor, full buffet, and professional pictures. More than dancing and celebrating, however, most seniors were excited to eat. A long day of fasting to ensure that the picture-perfect dress slips on without any snags really builds an appetite. Senior Karin Lydon was anxious to get the night underway as she stood in the long line waiting to be ushered into the banquet hall. “What am I most excited for? The food!” Lydon said, “I’m hungry.” But it’s not all about…
