Student, Parent and Community Involvement

Parents and community members are a vital part of the Dower program. Our volunteer program is an integral part of our program. Involvement opportunities include:


At Dower, we strive for all students to be at school EVERY DAY, ALL DAY, and ON TIME. We know that improved attendance equals improved success!

Classroom volunteers

Volunteers are always welcome!! Our Parent Support Coordinator helps place people in areas they feel most comfortable.

Kids at Hope

Dower is a Kids at Hope school, where we believe that all students are capable of success. Our staff works hard to connect with each child to learn about their abilities, interests and goals and we look for ways to incorporate those into their learning each day.

One-on-one tutors

Volunteers are trained to work with students in reading and math. A special focus of our tutors is working with primary students on phonics through the use of small group activities.


The Dower PTA is very active and involved in all school activities. Their operations directly benefit students and the school. They sponsor book fairs, special assemblies and programs, family dinners, books for students and fundraising activities.


The site-council is made up of parents, community members and staff. Its purpose is to help make the decisions and policies that operate the school and increase student achievement. Each member represents a group and helps ensure that everything we do at Dower meets your needs. The site-council meets on the first Monday of each month. Meetings are open for community input.

Dower Elementary will pursue the following goals in order to enhance the learning environment and opportunities and increase student performance and achievement.
