Dowell Families

Dowell Families - 
We have had another great week here at Dowell MS. 

Students are working hard to complete end of the nine weeks tests and projects while performing in concerts or playing basketball.  

Our musical starts tonight and I hope you can make it to the show this weekend to see the wonderful talents of our students. 
Have a wonderful weekend!
