You can go to ANY library over the summer to checkout books. At the beginning of the year, you simply return them to your campus and we will send them to the appropriate school (unless you want to return them to the appropriate campus over the summer). Your account must be in GOOD STANDING (e.g. no fines, overdue materials) in order to check-out over the summer.
Make sure you checkout the posters for the MISD Middle School Summer Olympic Reading Challenge and the McKinney Public Library Summer Reading Challenge!

Our goal at Dowell Middle School is to maximize learning time. One of the ways we do this is by establishing a standard of students' arrival in the classroom. When a student arrives late to class, we call this "tardy”.
This year we are using a new communication tool, which will email a parent each time the student is tardy to a class. The tardy count resets each quarter.
· First Unexcused Tardy is a warning
· Second Unexcused Tardy is a 30 minute after-school detention
· Third Unexcused Tardy is a hour after-school detention
· Fourth Unexcused Tardy is a two hour after-school detention
· Five or more Unexcused Tardies per quarter, are a three hour after-school detention each occurrence
* All detentions are served on Thursday afternoons
