"Our standard is excellence" at McDowell Elementary and let us introduce ourselves...
Please Read our Winter Weather Reminder from our superintendent....Brrrrr!


Our school is fundraising through Pennies for Patients. This campaign benefits The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS), and is working with thousands of schools across the country to raise funds for blood cancer research. 

Thanks to classrooms like OURS and donors like YOU, there are more children and adults surviving every day. 

All donations are greatly appreciated and are tax-deductible. Donations support LLS research, patient services, advocacy, public and professional education, and community services.

Online Donations

Thank you to those of you who have already made an online donation.  Please continue to encourage students to collect online donations by visiting your classroom page or setting up their own page. The link is listed on the Flash 48 flyer as well as the original flyer that was sent home with the student coin boxes.  

This is Mrs.Hardin's link to give online: Pennies
