At Michael Dowling School, Urban Environmental Magnet, we work to provide a social and academic climate that gives students a strong feeling of belonging. Our distinction is our environmental involvement, our special education programs, a highly qualified and stable staff, our history, and our unparalleled desire to have fun with learning.
The Dowling Parent Teacher Organization fosters community and raises funds to provide a wide range of educational enrichment programs for the students. We help to fund class trips, books, classroom supplies, and much, much more. During the past years, the Dowling PTO has provided learning opportunities that may have otherwise been unavailable to our children.
How will your contribution be used?
In the 2017-18 school year, we were able to give over $40,000 back to Dowling and our teachers. We gave $10,000 in teacher start of the year funds; $20,000 to our E-STEAM Grant Program (Dowling teachers may submit a grant application to facilitate the implementation of programs, activities and technology at Dowling); and several other grants for the school to cover equipment and activities. In addition to these grants, Dowling PTO sponsors great community building events, to keep Dowling families connected, such as the River Walk, the Breakfast Series and Family Movie Night. In the 2018-19 school year, we will continue to support these activities, particularly those activities associated the school's Environmental-Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics (E-STEAM) focus.
