The Towanda Area Elementary School held a writing contest for each grade level. The students who had their writings selected were asked to read their piece at the Veterans assembly that was held on November 10th. In addition to the writing contest students were asked to bring in photographs of their relatives that have served or are serving in our United States Military. Photos that students brought in were added to a slide show that was shown at the beginning of the assembly.
