Downey School


November 20, 2015
The fourth graders of Downey were invited to spend the day at Messiah College. The students took a campus tour, went to the Oaks Museum, attended a lesson on local owls, and worked with education students to learn about life sciences. They even ate in the student union.

Downey hosted the first Elementary Career Day and it was a huge success. 4th graders from Melrose joined the 3rd and 4th graders here at Downey to meet with over representatives from over 80 different career paths. Students learned about possible jobs for the future and what it takes to get there. Downey would like to thank all of the visitors and the staff members that put this wonderful event together.

Downey had a surprise visit from a fire crew today and the students and staff were invited out to learn about the trucks and their firefighters. Thank you so much to all of our men and women showing their leadership by serving our community.
