Student Spotlight

My students recently were challenged to write a post for their blog related to the topic of “School”.  What is school like at McDowell Middle School?

If you’d like to find out, I encourage you to visit my students’ blogs and see what they had to say.

Here are a few that you don’t want to miss:

Mark’s blog:  Mark wrote about a school sport at McDowell-Cross Country.

Grey’s Amazing Blog:  Grey discussed our “cornfield” school calendar.

Zoe’s Space Blog: Zoe gives an overview of a typical day and a little about the future of our school.

Is our school different than yours?  If so, leave us a comment to let us know!

Lovin’ on our Veterans!

Veterans Day is a day that is near and dear to my heart.  It’s a day that we get to honor all veterans for their sacrifice and service to our country.  McDowell Student Council has been collecting donations for the  Military Veterans Resource Center to help provide food for veterans in our community who are in need of food.  Our students have a history of SHOWING UP and supporting this fundraiser in a BIG way!

We set a goal of raising $500 and we have gone above and beyond! During our Veterans Day assembly on Thursday, Nov. 11, McDowell will be presenting a check to show our support and appreciation for our veterans.

And…we’re BACK!

To say that the past 18 months have been a little crazy would be an understatement.  Like every part of the world, our community and school have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.  Fortunately for us, with safety measures in place, our school district has been in session!

We have now ended our first 9-weeks  for the 2021-2022 school year.  Routines have been established in my class and we are moving along with reading and writing.  My Advanced Language Arts students are beginning their blogging experience.  View this slide show to learn a little bit about them.  I invite you to take a look at their blogs and check back often!
