Welcome back Downing Parents!


Each year, we have a school wide check drive.  This is the only school wide fundraiser Downing will do for the 2020-2021 school year.  Your generosity has paid for water bottle filling stations, teacher workshops and conferences, new calculators for all science and math teachers and so much more!  


With so many changes occurring this year, we wanted to find even the smallest ways to make the beginning of school a little easier, but most importantly contactless.  


You now have the option to donate to our check drive via Revtrak, the district credit card processing system. You can access the system by clicking: Once you are at the site, click "Downing MS Check Drive Donation" on the left side.


It is the same system used to pay your ipad fees.  There is a small fee associated with the service, but with the need to keep things contact-free, this is an exciting option to have available to us.  


If you have any questions about the check drive or this service, please feel free to contact our Bookkeeper, Karen Knoch at


Stay healthy and see you soon!
