Dear McDowell Families,

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

Summer is just around the corner -

Time to start thinking of good activities to keep our brains strong. Reading should be at the top of all of our lists to exercise our brains. Scholastic Book Company says that if we read just 4 books over the summer we will maintain all of  the knowledge we learned in school this year. This is a list of what readers are -

  •  Less Stressed
  • Have a Larger Vocabulary
  • Have Stronger Thinking Skills
  • Have Better Focus and Concentration
  • Have Better Speaking Skills
  • Appreciate Other Places and Cultures
  • Keep Brain Stimulated
  • Have Better Memory 
  • Improves Creativity
