Bowen’s Weekly Family Update
May 11, 2018

Dear Bowen Families,
This was a great week to enjoy some beautiful spring weather, if you can survive the allergies!  I would like to thank the 1st grade Daisy Girl Scouts for making the world a better place by cleaning up the Bowen playground earlier this week!  Let’s help them by picking up after ourselves and keeping our playground clean!  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,
