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! Please reach out at any time to let me know how we are supporting your child(ren).


Hello Dower Families!   

School begins each day at 8:10am and breakfast is provided.  Our school day ends at 2:40 pm.  Please send your child to school with a mask each day.  (We will have some available if they forget)

Thank you for partnering with us during conferences!  We conferenced with 269 of our families...that's 95%!!  Please do not hesitate to reach out at any point to touch base with your child's teacher or other Dower staff.  We are here to support you and your children.

It is getting cold!  Please make sure your child is dressed for the weather.  We are more than happy to help if your child needs clothing.  Please reach out to Mrs. Jorgensen or Mrs. Shadduck with any requests.  

Dec. 17th will be our last day of school before winter break.  Students will return after the new year on Jan. 3rd.  We hope you and your family have a safe and restful winter break. 

At Dower, 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. 

We have several videos that show our expectations at Dower.  If you haven't had a chance to watch them yet, please feel free!
