McDowell Weekly Updates

    Cold weather has arrived!  As a reminder, students need to have appropriate clothes for outdoor recess daily.  Five important items to have are: hats, gloves, coat, snow pants, and boots.  If they want to play in the snow, they will need to bring snow pants and boots.  Please help your child learn to dress themselves so that they can maximize their recess time!  It takes a great amount of time to zip coats, put on gloves, tie boots, etc.  Students may leave snowpants at the school but please communicate with your child and their teacher which items should remain at school vs. brought home.
