Dear McDowell Families,

Welcome to the 2015-16 school year! McDowell Elementary serves 300 plus students in grades K-5th.  We are centrally located inside the city of Taylor.  We have 11 general education classrooms, 2 special education self-contained classrooms, 2 learning resource rooms, an in house reading specialist, library, gym, and music room. All of our teaching staff is highly qualified. Addtional staff includes a speech and language teacher, bilingual teacher consultant through Wayne RESA, a special education social worker and a special education psychologist.  We are fortunate to have support services from a secretary, academic teaching assistant, school nurse, cooks, maintenance and several lay personnel.  Here at McDowell we work together to make the school a safe, and welcoming learning community for all.

This will be another wonderful year with students, families and staff,

Ms. Borg
