  Hello
Dowell Families
   


We have such talented students here at Dowell MS.  It has been my privilege to see basketball games, band and orchestra concerts as well as be in classrooms in the last week.  What I have seen has made me so proud!  I cannot wait to see more basketball this weekend and our choir and drama students perform next week.  

We have ten days left in this semester, please check in with your child and make sure that they have all of the assignments completed and turned in.  Also be sure to check Canvas for end of the quarter tests that are coming up in the next two days.  

Have a wonderful weekend and stay warm!
 
Sincerely,
Holly Rogers
Principal, Dowell Middle School
