  Hello
Dowell Families
   
We had a great week at Dowell MS. Our 7th and 8th graders completed the first round of state testing like pro's.  Our 6th grade students were so respectful of our test takers and did a great job of moving around the building quietly.  

This next week we will celebrate all of our 6th and 7th grade honor roll students on Monday. The 6th grade ceremony will be at 6:00 pm and 7th grade ceremony will be at 7:00 pm.  We will celebrate our 8th graders at the 8th grade walk on June 5, 2018 at Boyd High School.  

Please make sure that you are checking our calendar so you do not miss all of the great things coming up between now and the end of the school year.  

Have a wonderful weekend.
 
Sincerely,
Holly Rogers
Principal, Dowell Middle School 
Athletics
Physicals & EKG Information

Physicals
Students participating in McKinney ISD athletics are REQUIRED to have a yearly physical prior to tryouts, practices and games.  Physicals must be on or after April 1, 2018 to participate in athletics for the 2018-2019 school year.  Students are expected to get a physical on their own if they are unable to attend the physical provided by MISD.

All physicals MUST be completed on the official MISD Physical Form that is TAN in color.  Forms will be passed out to athletes on TODAY and will also be available in the front office.

EKG's
In the past we have offered EKG's for student athletes on the same day as physicals.  We are still offering EKG's along with Echocardiograms, but the set-up will be different this year.  There will only be ONE DAY these are offered at McKinney Boyd High School.  Parents must schedule these in advance.  

WALK-UP APPOINTMENTS are NOT AVAILABLE.
