Dear Bowen Families,
It’s that time again, when the turkeys come home to roost!  (We had to use this picture from last year...maybe the turkeys caught on that Thanksgiving isn’t the best time to be hanging around!)  Whatever it is that you have planned for the upcoming days off, we hope that it involves fun, food, family, and friends.  Have a wonderful Thanksgiving break, and we will see you next week!
Yours truly,
Diana & Tiffany

PTO Open Meeting w/Dr. Fleishman
On Tuesday, December 6th, Newton Superintendent David Fleishman will visit Bowen to hear from parents about “hot topics” and issues that affect the Bowen community.  We look forward to seeing you at 8:30 a.m. on Tuesday to share your thoughts!
High School Start Time PTO Forums
Earlier this fall, families received an email from the superintendent detailing Newton’s work on high school start times. The district is holding a series of community forums to discuss the benefits and costs of moving the high school start time later and gather feedback on several potential scenarios for a change. Some scenarios change only the high school hours, while others have a direct impact on our school and others in the district.  Research, reports, and scenarios can be found on the district website:
The Oak Hill Middle School PTO is sponsoring a Start Time forum that will be open to the three feeder schools (Bowen, Memorial Spaulding, Zervas) on Thursday, December 15 at 7:00 p.m. in the Oak Hill auditorium.  We encourage you to attend!
