  • Meeting Summary:
  • At this month’s meeting, the Bowen School Council reviewed the purpose of the group, which includes meeting and identifying focus areas of growth and improvement each year.  In keeping with the Responsive Classroom model, the group began with an energizer to find commonalities between its members.  Andy Sokatch shared an overview of the Bowen Community Survey results with the group; the PowerPoint is attached.  As this is the second year of the survey, we now have a baseline from last year’s data to work from, and we will be able to observe trends as we move forward.  At the next meeting, the School Council will use information from the survey results to identify focus areas for this year’s work.

  • December 11th, January 8th, February 5th, March 4th, April 1st, May 20th and June 3rd
