    Congratulations Girls on the Run!

    Thank you Coach Branner and Coach Faubert!

    The School 52 Girls on the Run 2018 fall season was a success! We had 14 girls throughout the season and 5 of them had personal best times at the celebratory 5K at MCC on Dec. 9th. Our Community Impact Project involved making 7 fleece blankets to give to young mothers’ at All City High to provide warmth to their little ones throughout the winter season. The girls grew tremendously both physically and emotionally throughout the program and Coach Branner & Coach Faubert are proud of their accomplishments.

      Who was Frank Fowler Dow?

    Frank Fowler Dow (1851 – 1928) was born in Fowlerville, NY.   The town was named after his great-great grandfather, Wells Fowler.  Mr. Dow attended college at Geneseo and studied medicine at the University of Buffalo.  Did you know that he worked to have New York State pass legislation so that all schools have a playground?  It is part of a law named after him, the Dow Law.  In 1930, School 52 was named after Dr. Dow to honor this man who did so much for children, his community and education.
