Bowen’s Weekly Family Update
February 9, 2018

Dear Bowen Families,

Today is the 100th day of school!  It has been another busy week at Bowen as we enjoyed another midweek snow storm.  Thank you for contributing to the PTO staff appreciation luncheon, the food was enjoyed by everyone!  Kindergarten classes led this month’s school meeting today.  The focus of the school meeting was “kindness”, great job K!  Thank you again for everything you do to help your children develop and grow as learners.  Bowen is a great place to be!   
Yours truly,

News You Need to Know
2018 Newton Family Conference
Last week, David Fleishman emailed families to invite all families to the 2018 Newton Family Conference on Saturday, March 24 from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. at Newton North High School.  The goal of the Newton Family Conference is to advance dialogue around issues of race, culture, and identity; create opportunities for families of color within NPS to meet each other; and to build relationships between families of color and white families within the district. The family conference is one way in which the Newton Public School District is seeking to create culturally responsive school communities.  To RSVP, please visit: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/2018-newton-family-conference-tickets-42724185188

Morning Arrival Routine Reminder
It is NPS practice that students enter the building independently from the bus, family drop-off or walking to school.  The main entrance doors will be unlocked from 8:20 - 8:30 a.m. for students to enter the building independently.  There will also be Bowen staff at the main doors and Blue Zone to greet students and assist students who may need support with the transition.  Families do not accompany their children into the building.  If families need to check-in with the office staff or nurse, they should go directly to the office.
