  Hello
Dowell Families
   
We have had a great week this past week.  Students and teachers always love the dress up days with Red Ribbon Week.  

Monday will be a student holiday. This is the day that is set aside for teachers to have parent conferences. Our teachers have sent out sign-ups for time slots on Monday so if you have someone you would like to visit with please send them an email.  Our front office staff will be off on this day so please make sure that you come through the front doors for your conferences as those doors will be unlocked.  

Next Friday at 9:00 am we will host a joint coffee with PTO in the learning commons.  This will be a time to visit with administrators, counselors and PTO officers and find out more about the great things going on at Dowell MS.  Hope you can join us.  
 
Have a wonderful weekend!

Sincerely,
Holly Rogers
Principal, Dowell Middle School
