 Two Wonderful Opportunities...
We are having a canned/boxed food drive sponsored by our 5th graders and Mr. Tomassion. Please bring your donations to his room. The food will go to some wonderful families. Thank you!

And we are also sponsoring a "Giving Tree." Donations needed are gloves, hats and scarves. These items will go to students in our building that really need them. Thank you!                          

 Welcome to McDowell...

We are so happy to have you at McDowell Elementary school! We serve approximately 340 students in grades K-5.  Thank you for choosing our school 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. 

We also have a full time Learning Coach who is a specialist in teaching and learning strategies, able to support any subject area and all staff in our building.

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.  

Principal - Ms. Borg
