Bowen’s Weekly Family Update
June 15, 2018
____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Dear Bowen Families,
There are five more days left of school for students!  It has been a great year at Bowen filled with learning and fun!  June is a time to celebrate the growth and success all students have achieved during the school year.  I appreciate the support families provide to help Bowen be a great community!  Thank you again for everything you do to help your children develop and grow as learners.  Bowen is a great place to be!  I am looking forward to one more week of school!  I hope you enjoy the summer with family and friends!
Yours truly,
Diana

News You Need to Know
A Note from the 5th Grade - Food Drive!
The 5th grade student council is sponsoring our annual summer food drive next week!  During the summer months, the Newton food pantry is understocked as it provides for families who are home for the summer.  Please consider donating food such as snacks, cereal, cookies, pasta, rice, canned foods, and much more.  Donations will be collected in the lobby.  We thank you for your cooperation and donation!

Last Day of School is June 22nd!
Friday, June 22nd is a half-day of school, with dismissal at 12:00 p.m.  We look forward to wishing everyone a happy start to summer break at that time!

Progress Reports
Progress reports will be made available online to families on Wednesday, June 20th.  If you are having trouble accessing your child’s progress report, please let the office know so we can help!

Staffing Updates
With the end of each school year, we find ourselves bidding farewell to some of our Bowen staff as they move on to new and exciting endeavors both within and outside of Newton.  We wish each and every one of these valued community members the very best!  Thank you to Caitlin Anderson, Nina Aronhalt, Katie Benjamin, Shannon Conway, Jamie English, Andrew Kinsella, Allison McDade, Maritza Perez, Crosby Piché, Stacey Richard, Julie Ryle, Anna Sibley, Brian Stockless, Kathryn Vasselin, and Zaida Wincelowicz.  Your contributions were always appreciated at Bowen!

Bowen Legacy Scholarship Update
I would like to thank the 5th graders and their families for organizing events throughout the year to raise money for the Bowen Legacy Scholarship.  This scholarship is awarded to a graduating Newton South High School senior, who is a Bowen alumni, selected by the NSHS scholarship committee.  In addition to being a Bowen alumni, each recipient returns to Bowen in June to speak with members of the graduating class.  This year the 5th grade class raised $1415.60 by selling pizzas on early release days and the 5th grade car wash.  The scholarship would not be possible without the support of 5th grade volunteers and our school community.  Thank you for helping the 5th grade students “pay it forward.”  

Class Placement Lists
Placement information will be sent to families on Friday, August 24th.  It’s always so exciting to find out who your new teacher will be!

New Classroom Visits
Another date for your calendar!  On Thursday, August 30th from 10:00 a.m. - 10:30 a.m., teachers will welcome families into Bowen for a brief visit to their new classrooms.
