If your child just finished the school year in one of J. A. Morrow Primary School’s Pre-K Counts classroom with Mr. Johnson or Mrs. Napp, you are invited to participate in a state wide survey to share your experience. The Pennsylvania Office of Child Development and Early Learning (OCDEL) is the funding source for the Pre-K Counts program for the Towanda Area School District and no one outside the study team will have access to any of your specific answers. Please, share your thoughts by clicking on this link listed below.
Local Guitar Hero and former Music teacher Rod Patt dazzled our 2nd grade students with a guitar lesson and activities! Students got to stand up and rock out to Mr. Patt's energetic guitar riffs. He also taught Mrs. Ross' class how electric guitars and amplifiers work, as well as many of the effect pedals. He even brought a bass guitar! The students performed Joan Jett's "I Love Rock and Roll" back in March and they have had a heightened interest in guitar all year. We are grateful that Mr. Patt took the time to visit and share his skills with us, and the students were all smiles!
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.
