Dear Bowen Families,
Even though last Friday was the final “official” newsletter of the 2016-2017 school year, we had a couple of reminders and some information we wanted to share before we all make a break for it and run off into summer!  Luckily, this also gives me the opportunity to write one final newsletter introduction in my role as Bowen Assistant Principal, as I will be moving from Bowen to Countryside in the fall.  The past four years here at Bowen have been wonderful -- not just a great learning opportunity for me as an educator, but a truly enjoyable experience getting to know everyone who is part of the Bowen community.  Thank you to everyone for your collaboration, support, and willingness to do everything possible to help make Bowen the amazing place that it is!  It has been a true pleasure watching your children learn and grow over my time here at Bowen, and I will miss their smiling, enthusiastic faces!  I firmly believe that an elementary school is a special place for everyone who is lucky enough to spend time in one, and I know that Bowen will continue to be a place where children and adults have great times together.  Thank you for everything!
Yours truly,
