During the last full week of school, McDowell student council organized a school spirit week. Today, students dressed up for Wacky Wednesday to show their school spirit! I believe that this is a great way to end the school year!
This week at McDowell is spirit week. We are celebrating the last week of school filled with fun creative ways to show our spirit. This Tuesday was “Hat day” and students got to show their personalities with their creative hats. It was a very fun way to show the students to be creative with their style and to try something new. I think this is a great way to end the school year.
For the McDowell track team, all of our hard work builds up for the biggest meet of the year, which is Mid State League or MSL for short. MSL is when all 9 teams in the area come together and compete for the title of MSL champion. This was the last meet of the year, so the team put forth their best effort last night and it all payed off. The McDowell girls team placed 4th out of 9 teams and the boys places 9th. A couple of highlights from MSL included some phenomenal performances including 8th grader Allyson Cotton placing 1st in ALL of her events and tieing the school record in the pole vault, 8th grader Emma Conley coming back from an injury and throwing the shot put and discus and she placed high in both events even after being hurt for a while, 8th grader Riley Shultz placing 1st in the high jump and 3rd in the 400 meter dash, myself, 7th grader Annie Karshner placed 1st in both of my events which is the shot put and discus and was only 5 inches away from breaking the school record in the shot put, and our 4×400 relay teams running their hearts out in the pouring rain last night. We ended the season with a lot to be proud of! Go Braves!

At McDowell in Mrs. Ross’s science class we us these materials to measure in Newtons. The Newtons measure the forces of items and in the class that is exactly what we do with these materials. The Newtons are named after Sir Isaac Newton the famous scientist. That is what we are doing in Mrs. Ross’s science class
This the 7th grade boys baseball team has a double header at Crossroads Church this Saturday at 10:00. The boys have had a very successful season so far. There was a lot of rain the last few weeks and a lot of the games have gotten cancelled. The teams record is 4-3. Since most games have gotten cancelled they will have a lot of games in the weeks ahead. Last night they played Amanda Clearcreek and won 12-7. Pitchers for that game were Peyton Anderson and Landon Long both did a great job!
Students at McDowell and Logan Elm high school are very talented in their art work! These students have created unique and creative works of art. The walls all throughout the Middle school are covered with many works of art. They will be getting ready for an art show that will be coming up shortly. Congratulations to the students whose art was displayed on the walls of McDowell!
