Family Survey
13 October,2015By: Diana Guzzi
Dear Bowen Families:

This year, the Bowen School Council is continuing the practice we began last year of implementing a brief family survey.  We are excited that, with a year’s data, we can now begin to look for trends and changes over time.  And to do so, we need your help!  Below you will find a link for the anonymous survey from the Bowen School Council.  It is important for us to hear from you about what is working well at Bowen, areas to improve, and additional thoughts you have about your family’s experience at school. 

We ask that EVERY parent/guardian of a Bowen student to please fill out the survey (so that if a student has 2 parents or guardians each person should each fill out a separate survey).

The online survey is open today, October 13, 2015 and will close on October 21, 2015.  In addition to the online survey, paper copies will be sent home tomorrow, October 14.  This year we have also translated the survey into three of the other primary languages spoken in Bowen homes: Chinese, Russian and Hebrew.  PDF versions are attached to this email and are available in hard copy, upon request. 

The survey can be found at the following link:

If you choose to complete the paper copy of the survey, there will be a collection envelope on the office door labeled “Bowen Family Survey.”  School Council members will collect surveys daily.Once the survey is complete and data has been collected, the Bowen School Council will work as a group to analyze the results and look for trends.  These findings will be presented at an open School Council meeting for all members of the Bowen community who wish to attend.  The results will also be shared in a Bowen School Council Meeting Summary email.

We look forward to using this valuable feedback to continue to help us grow and learn!  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.  Thank you!

Yours truly,
The Bowen School Council Co-Chairs
Diana Guzzi, Principal                                    Andy Sokatch, Parent
