Bowen’s Weekly Family Update
May 29, 2018

Dear Bowen Families,
I apologize for the late edition of Bowen’s Weekly Family Update.  I hope you were able to enjoy time with family and friends during the three day weekend!  
Yours truly,

News You Need to Know

Are You Moving Before September?
As we started the placement process for the upcoming school year there have been some conversations that students have shared with teachers about potentially moving before the next school year.  If you are planning to move out of the Bowen district prior to September 2018, please inform the office and the classroom teacher as soon as possible.  This will help us gather the required information to share with the new school as well as help us to create more accurate class placements for the upcoming school year.

Color Day Volunteers Needed!   
Bowen needs help on Color Day.  Color Day is Bowen’s field day where students participate in fun and cooperative physical activities.   We need volunteers to help with these events.  Color Day is Tuesday, June 5th (rain date: Tuesday, June 12th).   Volunteers are needed from 8:15AM to approximately 12:15PM.   If you would like to volunteer, please make sure that your CORI/SORI is up to date (you can check with Mrs. Megrian in the Bowen office).   Contact Lina Yoshida at to volunteer for Color Day.

Crossing Guard and Bus Driver Appreciation
There are many people who help you get to school safely. How often do we thank them?  On Friday June 8, we will show our crossing guards and bus drivers how much we appreciate their help. Please make a thank you note and give it on your way to school on Friday, June 8th to to any of the following people who help you get to school safely: Roman Baran in front of the school, Lorin Amendola at Cypress and Jackson, Ellen Fiore at Langley Path and/or Susan Barish at Parker and Daniel.  Or perhaps you take the bus with: Jean Max, Bob Vanaria and Monique Houston.  Your note can be simple: "Thanks for helping me get to school safely!"  They will appreciate it so much!

Back to School Night 2018
It’s not too early to plan for next year!  Bowen’s Back to School Night will be held on Wednesday, September 12th.  More details to come in the fall!
