On Saturday, October 7th National Honor Society students from Towanda Junior/Senior High School volunteered at the Monroeton Hose Company. About 20 students volunteered their Saturday to help paint the outside of the fire company. The students did a great job and had fun helping members of our community. The National Honor Society would like to thank the Monroeton Fire Company for the opportunity to perform community service and bring our organization closer together.
The Towanda High School Guidance Office will co-sponsor a Financial Aid Information Night with Wyalusing and Northeast Bradford High Schools. The Financial Aid Night will be held on Thursday, October 19, 2017 at 6:00 p.m. at the Wyalusing Junior/Senior High School Auditorium. Ms. Marla Kane, Regional Director for the Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency (PHEAA), will be on hand to present information on the various programs within the Pennsylvania financial aid system. She will also give very specific information on the application process and the correct procedure for completing the online and paper forms for financial aid. The information will be for general purposes for any college. Ms. Kane has done numerous presentations of this type for guidance counselors and parents and comes with many good recommendations on the program she offers.
The program is free of charge and would be valuable for anyone who has a child planning on going to college in the next few years. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the Guidance Office at 268-2059.
Coming soon to Towanda will be the area’s second Color Run sponsored by the Towanda Class of 2018! Come one and all and join the fun!
