Student Art Exhibits


Each year our students
participate in a variety of art contests, poster contests and exhibits. One
student is selected each year to receive the "Superintendent's Award" for
outstanding achievement in this area.

Band/Chorus Concert

The
elementary band and chorus students present two concerts a year. One concert is
held in the Winter with the second concert held in Spring. The concerts are held
at Towamensing.

Sixth Sense Competition

A team of youngsters from the
Towamensing and the S.S. Palmer Elementary School compete with local students in
the sixth sense academic competition. The competition is held in the Spring.
Students meet regularly, under the direction of their advisor, Mrs. Arnold, to
prepare.

Safety Programs

Whenever possible, we invite
speakers into our school to stress the importance of good safety habits.
Assemblies relating to school bus and bike safety, stranger awareness,
environmental issues, and nutrition are a regular part of our program

Peer Tutors

Mrs. Broderidge, our
librarian, works with fifth and sixth grade students who would like to help
younger children experiencing difficulty with their school work. These children
volunteer their time in an effort to provide help with schoolwork and much
needed encouragement for these youngsters during the year.

Peer Mediation


A team of teachers and
students have received training in Peer Mediation, which is a program to help
students resolve conflicts which may occur on the playground, bus, or in the
classroom. It is not designed to resolve severe behavioral or disciplinary
problems. These types of situations are referred to the principal or guidance
counselor.

Student Council

Student
representatives from grades 3 thru 6 are selected to sit on our Student Council.
These students take an active role in our school's everyday activities and
promote positive programs throughout the school year. Our Student Council is
under the direction of Mrs. Kocher & Mrs. Heydt.

Yearbook

Under the guidance of Mrs.
Paulinho, the Towamensing Elementary School publishes an annual yearbook. This
yearbook encompasses the many exciting activities and events which take place
throughout the school year. Everyone will be represented in our yearbook through
class and individual photos.

Computer Club

Our Computer Club offers many
exciting opportunities for our students. Students are given the chance to visit
the Computer Room during selected times to learn more about technology and
experience the many opportunities of the world of computers.

Fine Arts Night

On this night, held in the
Spring, students in grades K-3 perform class level and grade level songs. Along
with this, the hallways are adorned with artwork from all students in grades
K-6.
