Bowman Elementary School
Bowman Parent Teacher Association
 

 
ROLE OF THE PTA

The PTA is a voluntary organization which brings together parents, teachers, school staff and sometimes students at Bowman School, building parent involvement and community for the welfare of the school.  The Bowman PTA plays an important role in fundraising to support unfunded or under-funded curriculum-based programs, infrastructure improvements and social events—all vital to our school’s success.

 

MEMBERSHIP– WE NEED YOU!

The number one reason to join and get involved in the Parent Teacher Association is to benefit your child by helping our school.  The Bowman PTA is self-funding and has the flexibility to respond to the immediate needs of the Bowman teachers and their students.

 

PARTICIPATING AND VOLUNTEERING

PTA meetings and activities are open to the entire Bowman community, and we would love to see you attend.  Bowman’s fabric is woven from a variety of threads.  Everyone has something unique to bring to the table. Please consider volunteering.  It is a great way to get to know the other parents, the staff, and the terrific Bowman students.  There are opportunities for all schedules and personalities such as volunteering in the library, leading a Big Backyard nature hike, becoming a room parent, and working on a fundraiser.  All parent volunteers must complete and return a CORI form to the Bowman School Office.

 

A MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENTS

The Bowman PTA is an organization that brings together the people who care about the wellbeing of our children – parents, teachers and staff – to create an engaging and challenging learning environment for Bowman students and families. Inclusivity is one of the hallmarks of our PTA . All parents are welcome to join and encouraged to share their views and ideas. We are fortunate at Bowman to have families from countries all across the globe who bring a wealth of experience and knowledge. What unites us is our commitment to ensuring that our children receive the best education possible.

The PTA plays an important role supporting curriculum based programs, infrastructure improvements, and social events – all of which are vital to Bowman. The PTA is not just the presidents and other board members. We are all a part of the PTA and only by working together can we meet our goals and continue to make Bowman such a vibrant and exciting place to be for students, teachers and parents.
