Dear Bowen Families,
It’s been awhile since we checked the calendar of “national days” to see what we should be celebrating as we head into another weekend.  However, we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to share with you that March 3rd is “National ‘I Want You to be Happy’ Day”!  We have so many opportunities for joy, smiles, and laughter here at school each and every day, but it’s always good to be mindful and deliberate about helping others to be happy.  When we actively demonstrate what “Be Kind” looks like, kids are more likely to follow our lead.  They are always watching what we do!  Thank you for everything you do to support your children and all of the staff here at Bowen.  We hope you have a wonderful weekend!    
Yours truly,
Diana & Tiffany

Bowen International Potluck Dinner
The annual Bowen International Potluck Dinner is Friday, March 24, at 6:00pm.  Please join us in celebrating Bowen's diversity and international community!  Bring a dish reflective of your heritage, and wear something representative. Ms. Wenger will have art exhibits by our 3rd and 4th graders on display. From 7:15-8:30pm, enjoy performances of traditional music, dance, rhythmic gymnastics, martial arts, Chinese lion dance, and an international fashion show.  Please email Jen Lee at if your child is interested in joining our performance line-up (i.e., play an instrument, sing, dance, or wear traditional clothes in our fashion show). We would also like to update our slide show showcasing the worldly travels of Bowen families.  Please forward family travel photos to Julia Wu at  The slide show will be on display in the Bowen lobby for families and students to enjoy.  Lastly, please sign up to help set up the gym, serve food, and/or clean up.  Guests cannot serve themselves food in accordance to the health code so we need volunteers to help serve food that night.  Thanks!
