 Welcome to McDowell...

McDowell serves over 340 students in grades K-5.  Thank you for choosing McDowell as the building block of your child’s education. I am proud to say that we have a wonderful, highly qualified staff.  They take great care in providing a balanced curriculum, which incorporates the academic, social, and emotional well-being of each student.  You have begun a great partnership between home and school that allows your student to grow and develop as a learner. 

McDowell has a full time reading specialist who works both in classrooms and with small groups of students to enhance literacy skills.  

Discipline at McDowell is proactive.  All classrooms participate in the PBIS-Positive Behavior Incentive Support grant through Wayne RESA.  The proactive approach to behavior involves expectations in the classroom as well as throughout the building to Be Safe, Be Responsible, and Be Respectful.  Every day is a fresh start where students are provided opportunities to make good choices and follow expectations. 

Families have opportunities to volunteer in the classroom and chaperone field trips.  If you are interested, you may fill out a request to volunteer in the main office. Please consider joining the PTA which works to provide materials and special activities for students.

You are your child’s most valuable resource.  I look forward to partnering with you to advance your child’s learning.  Please contact me with any questions or concerns.  

Sincerely,
Principal - Ms. Borg
