J. Andrew Morrow Student Attend Sock Hop

The first grade students from J. Andrew Morrow in the Towanda Area School District recently enjoyed a day full of hands on learning at their annual Sock Hop. The students, faculty, and staff dressed in their best 50’s attire for the event. Students were engaged in activities inspired by the 50’s which included: bowling, limbo, hula hoops, jump ropes, Bingo, dice addition, car racing, and sight word hopscotch. This was a great opportunity for the students to incorporate academics with social skills such as cooperation and compassion while following our school’s expectations of the three R’s (Respect Yourself, Respect Others, and Respect Property). The students also learned a 50’s dance and attended the “Soda Shop” where they all got a root beer float and snack sponsored by the school’s PTO. We also want to thank the Towanda Fire Department for allowing us to use their facility for this experience.

700 Club Inductees

Mrs. Rebecca Stanfield, Principal of Towanda Junior/Senior High School, has announced that Chase Dibble, Noah Poll, and Seth Porter have been named to the district’s “700 Club”. This club is designed to recognize students who score a 700 or more (out of 800) on at least one section of a College Board SAT test. This is a feat that only about five percent of the nation’s students attain. The average score on the SAT is about 500 per section (reading, math, and writing). Chase Dibble scored above 700 in the Math section, and Noah and Seth scored above 700 in the Reading/Writing section.
