Student Section Bus

The 8th grade volleyball team will be playing in the MSL Championship game on Wednesday, 10-13-21. We will be taking a separate bus for students that would like to go and support the team. Students will need to go home after school on Wednesday and come back at 4:30. The bus will leave at 4:45pm. To ensure a spot, interested students will need to bring $5 for their ticket on Tuesday, 10-12-21. At that time they will be given a permission slip that will need to be signed and returned on Wednesday. Students will return after the game on the bus where they will need to be picked up at McDowell. Students are encouraged to wear RED to the game.

How to use Google Drive in "offline" mode

The link below will give you instructions for how to use Google Drive in "offline" mode. I understand that many of you already know how to do this, but I wanted to level the playing field and make sure everyone has the same information. If you have "spotty" or unreliable internet, if you have a lot of people sharing a connection, or if you are concerned about data caps and overage charges, this can be a big help and good tool. Basically, it allows you to access and work on files without being online. Then you can share the files later when you're back online. Follow the directions below to make files available offline and how to make your offline work available online again.
