SCHOOL TOURS - Tours are held every Wednesday at Dowling. We will meet at 9:00 AM in the canopy foyer, this is the entrance off of the parking lot. Our tours are group tours, giving you a chance to tour the entire school. We will be stopping in our auditorium, art, music and media rooms, the gym, the lunchroom and the pool if possible. We will also visit each kindergarten classroom giving you a chance to speak with each teacher for a few minutes. You will get time at the end of the tour to meet principal Rossow and ask questions. This tour will give you all of the general information about what our school has to offer, if you are looking for an upper grade, you are welcome to join us. We try to keep all tours under an hour, if you are part of a very large group it may take longer.
