    Dear Families,

    At Dows Lane Elementary School, we are passionate about creating a nurturing, joyful learning environment- where all students, staff, and visitors feel a sense of belonging and inclusion. We strive to create a balance between a rigorous academic foundation and social emotional learning for our students. We believe that children build knowledge as they are thinking critically and creatively, and collaborating with others.

    Feeling positive about school and learning is at the forefront of our values. We want our students to become caring, compassionate individuals who grow to be the best versions of themselves. We foster relationships and partner with families to support our students. In addition, we are grateful to our wonderful PTSA and IEF for their support and enrichment of our work and student experiences.

    Our Dows Lane staff is committed to helping all children reach their fullest potential. We engage in professional learning experiences and grow stronger and better every day.

    We are excited about this school year, filled with joyful learning and a more typical day for our children. We are taking all of our positive learning from last year and adding to our already strong foundation. Exciting days ahead!
