McDowell will be hosting author, Jane O'Connor on 3/7/16. She is the author of the Fancy Nancy books appropriate for grades 1-4. There will be one all-school assembly on March 7, from 10:45-11:15, in the gym. The children are encouraged to wear their PJ's on this day, since Ms. O'Connor's book centers around sleepovers. Please mark your calendars now.
(This is in addition to author Natalie Lloyd, who will be here on 3/17/16.)

  • Finally, if you are in the full OTES model; meaning you have had the observation already, it is time to schedule your final observation. Please schedule with ME this week if at all possible for the observation to occur before March 1st.

    If you have not been observed this year, your time is also coming! Please schedule a half hour observation with ME to be completed in March 2016. Still quite a few of you folks left.
