Updated: Jun 29

To McDowell Parents and Students:

Let your voices be heard. Your opinion counts.

Because of the unexpected world-wide pandemic, we left school mid- year in a blur and a whirlwind. You met the challenge of remote learning with bravery and tenacity. Let us celebrate each other for our accomplishments. We know you will be leaving McDowell to further your educational goals and we wish you the best of luck. The McDowell family still wants to celebrate you. Exact time and place will be determined; this is why we need your feedback. Help us plan your farewell celebration by responding to this prompt. Scroll down and follow the instructions. We look forward to hearing from you.

Thank you,

McDowell Staff
