opportunities to participate!
7th Grade Social
Each winter the 7th graders get together for games, music, food and a crazy good time with their classmates. It’s not a dance (awkward!) and the kids don’t dress up (bonus!).
8th Grade Social
End-of-the-year celebration for our graduating 8th graders gives them the chance to get dressy (think high school homecoming) without the fuss of dates and prom-posals. Come for an enchanting evening and hang out
with your friends!
This highly regarded program tackles a problem we can all relate to: the untameable middle school backpack. Teachers and parents nominate students for Binder Hospital – these students work with PTA volunteers to get their personal school materials organized and ready for success. Students continue with the program until they no longer need organizational help. This amazing program is beloved by teachers, parents and even the most reluctant middle schoolers.
Family-sponsored Legacy Garden stones commemorate students’ journeys at Downing Middle School for a walkable testament to the support of our community and a wonderful memory for your child.
