Bowen’s Weekly Family Update
October 20, 2017

Dear Bowen Families,

We ended our week with another great Bowen Walks the Walk!  Students and staff started the day off by enjoying thirty minutes of exercise and conversation with friends as they walked around the track on the upper field.  This was also an opportunity for students to help raise money for the PTO.  I would like to thank families for sponsoring students for this event!  Thank you again for everything you do to help your children develop and grow as learners.  Bowen is a great place to be!  Enjoy the beautiful weather this weekend.

Yours truly,

Centre Street Food Pantry - Weekend Food for Families!
Our local food pantry is now offering weekend food program for students called Fuel.  The Fuel program provides local students with a weekend’s worth of easy-to-prepare healthy meals.  It is a free program for eligible families.  If this supplemental food program could help your family, please contact me or our school social worker stephanie_baumann@newton.k12.ma.us                  

Hope to See You at the PTO Mystery Dinner!
It’s time for the Bowen Mystery Dinner again this fall:  an event for Bowen parents to meet each other, where your dining companions for the evening are the mystery!  It’s a great way to meet other Bowen parents and connect with ones you already know!  This year the event will be on Saturday, November 4th starting at 6:30 p.m.
This is a fun, delicious, and relaxing evening for the Bowen community. We’ll all gather at Diana Guzzi's house for appetizers, then divide up for dinner at one of many houses with a smaller group of people, and then gather together again as a whole group for dessert and coffee at a third location. The mystery is where (and with whom) you'll have dinner!  Tickets are limited, so purchase your tickets for the event at http://tinyurl.com/BowenMysteryDinnerTickets2017.

Food Service Wants to Hear From You!
Please share your food service experience so that the NPS food service department can improve service, address any issues of concern, and make changes that create a more positive experience for students and families. The survey should take no more than 5 minutes and gives very important feedback!
