Welcome to the 2018-19 School Year!

If this is your first year at Dowell Elementary, the Parent Teacher Association (PTA) extends a very warm welcome to each of you. If you are a seasoned Dowell family, we hope you are as excited as we are to return to school and reunite with our Dowell Dolphin community!

As you start the year, remember that PTA’s main focus is the children of our school and community. With that in mind, I encourage each and every one of you to join PTA and become a part of our team. The number one reason to join PTA is to benefit the children. But there are many more advantages:

  • By becoming a PTA member, you’ll be demonstrating to your child the importance you place on education.
  • By volunteering with your PTA, you gain valuable experiences and personal confidence. It’s an opportunity to put your skills and hobbies to good use, for a good cause.
  • By getting involved, you’ll be part of the solution, helping to make positive change.
  • PTA functions provide opportunities to meet other parents and teachers.
  • The PTA is a forum for exchanging ideas; please attend the PTA meetings throughout the year to make suggestions and provide your input.

As your PTA president this year, I am looking forward to strengthening our working partnership with Cobb County Schools, the Dowell administration, our amazing teachers and invaluable staff to provide an excellent learning experience for our children.

Each year, Dowell PTA invests time, energy and money on programs and events that enhance our children’s experiences at school. Our perennial goal is to grow in membership and participation in order to add more to the programs, events, and other needs of our school. Your membership goes a long way in helping us meet our goals. If you want to learn more about the workings of PTA, suggest ideas or offer help in any way, please contact us.

Wishing your family an incredible year!

Joanna Capo
Dowell Elementary PTA President 2018-19
