Our MISD Athletic Word of the Week has been “Goals”. Coaches visited with athletes about setting goals, making them obtainable, directing energy to reach their goal, and even a timeline to help guide them to reach the goal. Athletes of the Week are: Ethan Glass, Ethan Griggs, Zach Harry, Natrell Gross, Brody Chaiken, Erik Jackson, Bethany Garner, Izzie Becker, Leah Turner.
A lot of sickness still going around. Please make sure your athlete is getting plenty of sleep, fruit juices, fruits, not sharing food/drink with others. It can set them back some or out of school a few days.
The McKinney Food Pantry was so excited to receive our donation of over 509 lbs. of can food from the Can Food Drive Game with Evans last week. I Again want to thank our 8th graders, their parents, and our DMS Teachers for the understanding and participation in this event. We want to make this a Dowell Tradition in the years to come.
Support your Dowell Athlete in all that they do. Come, attend a basketball game in your DMS spirit shirt and cheer them on. See you in the gym!
