The Towanda Area School District Board of Education will meet for a Work Session for general purposes on Monday, April 10, 2017, at 7:00 PM in the Board Room of the Towanda Elementary School.
“What was your inspiration for the character of Azar?” Towanda senior Samantha Layne-Perkins asked that question of visiting author Tim O’Brien in Binghamton, NY, on Saturday, March 25, 2017. Tim O’Brien is a National Book Award winner and the author of The Things They Carried, a collection of stories based on his own experiences in the Vietnam War. O’Brien delighted the audience that filled the Binghamton High School Helen Foley Theater that night. The National Endowment for the Arts’ BIG READ program and Broome County Community College sponsored O’Brien’s funny, warm, human and heartfelt presentation.
The Towanda Area School District will be holding Pre-Kindergarten (K-4) and Kindergarten (K-5) registration for all children entering school for the first time in the fall of 2017. All children registering must reside in the Towanda Area School District to be eligible for these programs. Registration will be held at the J. Andrew Morrow Primary School on Wednesday, June 14th and Thursday, June 15th by appointment. Parents may secure their appointed time when they pick up the registration packets at the J. Andrew Primary School office. They may also find the forms on the district website under the Parent Tab. Parents may also call the school to schedule their registration appointment at 570-265-4991. If your child is already attending the Pre-Kindergarten (K-4) program, you DO NOT need to register your child for the Kindergarten Program.
