Bowen’s Weekly Family Update

Dear Bowen Families,
It is hard to believe but there are only 24 more days of school left for students.  Where did the time go?  Our year has been filled with learning and fun!  Thank you again for everything you do to help your children develop and grow as learners.  Bowen is a great place to be!  Have a great weekend!
Yours truly,
