About the Principal

I am incredibly lucky to be the principal of Dower Elementary. I look forward to teaming with families! I have two daughters within the Clover Park School District and believe it is the BEST district in the WORLD J! Please reach out at any time to let me know how we are supporting your child(ren).


Hello Dower Families!  

November is here! This month we will partner with families during conferencing.  We work hard to partner with 100% of our families.  We will have our intervention space open, so please come by and meet the team before or after your conference. 

The weather is getting much colder.  Please make sure that you child comes dressed for the cold weather.  If your child needs warmer clothes, please let us know.  We are happy to help.  It is a PRIVILEDGE to partner with you and your child(ren).  Please let us know if there is anything we can do to ensure your child(ren) are receiving the best educational experience possible! 


Attendance continues to be a focus for us in Clover Park. It is important to have your child(ren) here on time and for the full day. Please communicate with us if your child does need to be absent. Please challenge your child to be the healthiest in school....attendance is important!

We expect great things from our Dower Dragons. We believe firmly in the statement:


Research shows that a child should not miss more than one/two day a month (on average). Please let us know what we can do to support you and your child to get them here every day and on time.

We are a Kids at Hope School! We believe in looking at the Hope factors in a child and how to help them be successful. No exceptions, no excuses.

Please note, students should not be dropped off before 8:00 a.m. Supervision of students begins at 8:00 a.m. Students should not be dropped off prior to 8:00 am. We care deeply for the safety of your student.

  • Breakfast will be served each day at 8:00AM.  Please have your child dropped off at 8 if they will be eating breakfast.  School begins at 8:30AM.  Breakfast is free for all students.
  • Students will need to be in their classrooms ready to learn by 8:30AM.
  • Students will be dismissed each day at 3:00PM.

At the end of the day, please ensure you are watchful of our busses at the parent pickup area. We have supervision out there to help support this transition and to keep students safe. Please make sure that your student is here each day ready to learn. We are also reminding visitors to sign in at the office when you are on campus. We truly appreciate this measure to keep our students safe.
Thank you again for sharing your children with us!!! We are so excited to have an incredible school year!
