Bowen’s Weekly Family Update
April 12, 2019
Dear Bowen Families,
We kicked off our unofficial school week on Sunday with an amazing science day.  More than 200 Bowen students and other community members demonstrated how to “BE Curious.”  Students were eager to share their thinking and learning.  This event could not happen without the work of a number of volunteers.  Thank you for all that you did to ensure this event was successful!  Thank you again for everything you do to help your children develop and grow as learners.  Bowen is a great place to be!  See you on April 22, enjoy the break!
Yours truly,
