History of Townley Elementary School

  • The Townleys

    As with all elementary schools in Irving, Townley Elementary was named after a local person who contributed to the community. Dr. John F. Townley began his career in the Everman Independent School District in 1952 and served as a classroom teacher, coach, principal, and superintendent of schools. In 1970, he joined Irving Independent School District as superintendent. He retired from the school district in 1985. Throughout the years, Dr. Townley devoted his life to children as a teacher and administrator.


    Townley's School Song

    written by Bill Bradley
    former Townley music teacher

    "A colleague from my years in Germany would sing a German song called, 'Danke' or 'Thanks'. She had numerous verses written in German, but the written melody could not be found. On my return to the United States, this melody kept going though my mind and I decided I would write words about John F. Townley to compliment the melody. In writing the words, I thought about all that I love about our school."
