  Hello
Dowell Families
   
Today was the last day of our first 9 weeks of school.  I am so proud of our students and the growth that they have made since the beginning of the year.  I cannot wait to see what great things they accomplish in the next 9 weeks.  

Next week is Red Ribbon Week.  Please see the flyer below for our dress up days.  It is always fun to see the creativity of our staff and students when we have dress up days.  

Thanks to everyone who has already sold popcorn for our fundraiser.  I know the staff and students are excited about more flexible seating for our classrooms.  

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

Sincerely,
Holly Rogers
Principal, Dowell Middle School
