Calling our talented Bowman Students!!

Once a month we gather in our gymnasium for an “All School Meeting''. The purpose of these meetings is to reinforce our sense of community, celebrate our children, and have fun! Fifth grade student volunteers along with Mr. Starr, Mrs. Uzenski and I are responsible for creating the content. The students assume the leadership roles and serve as Emcees. This year, we are adding a new feature to our meeting routine. During a portion of our meeting, students are invited to share a talent, hobby, or extracurricular activity. The "share" could be something related to one’s culture, heritage or identity; it could be something that is/was developed with formal training and/or lessons or not; and could be a solo performance or include others. If your child(ren) is interested in being featured, please assist them in filling out this form so that we can plan accordingly. We welcome and look forward to seeing the amazing things our kiddos can do!

No School

Parent/Caregiver conferences are Thursday, November 3rd and Friday, November 4th. Students will be dismissed - all four days at 12:30. Kidsborough will be available when students get dismissed.
