MCDOWELL ELEMENTARY SCHOOL celebrates positive behavior


McDowell Elementary School’s Positive Behavior Kick Off took place recently and classes painted rocks to make McDowell a better place.

Principal Lynne Borg read a special book called, "Only One You," by Linda Kranz, to celebrate that everyone is each special and different in our world.

Classes carried on that theme with rock painting to make McDowell a better place.


To the world we are only a single person. To McDowell, students are our world!
