Dowell Families
I want to first say congrats to all of our 6th and 7th grade honor roll students.  It was great to celebrate you on Monday night with your friends and family.  If you were unable to attend and your child received this honor and has not gotten their certificate along with their goodies please make sure that they stop by the office to pick those up.  

Our track team did a great job at the District Track Meet and they were able to celebrate their season this week at their after school celebration.  Our tennis team brought home the district tennis title for the 12th year in a row.  The Dowell MS band students will be going to competition in the next two weeks and we know that they will do great.  

Thanks for sending us your best every day.  Please remember that we will have no school next Friday, April 27th as we did not have any bad weather days this year.

Have a great weekend!

All physicals MUST be completed on the official MISD Physical Form that is TAN in color.  Forms have been passed out to students who have Athletics on their schedule for next year. Students who wish to add Athletics may pick-up the forms in the front office.
