A note from Mrs. Bowden...
I encourage you to take time to be with family and enjoy the season. I will have a full house with grandkids and family. There will be a lot of coffee brewing in the Bowden home.
There are some fun activities coming up this week, but we will also finish strong with mid-terms.
Thank you for a great first semester!

Thank You Lion Community
Thank you so much for making “Blue for Emma” a success! With your help, we raised $960 for her transplant journey. Emma and her family are very grateful.
With a last minute donation from "influencer" Alyssa Schoenberg an additional $180 was added to Emma's transplant journey.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
