School Council Update & Election

School Council Update & Election

Every school in Massachusetts is required, by law, to have a school council made up of parents and teachers that serves as an advisory board to the principal. The council meets in open meetings monthly, and everyone is welcome to attend these meetings. This year the Bowen School Council will continue its work on communication and address priorities that emerge from this year’s Bowen family survey. While we invite everyone to join our meetings, we are also looking for 3 new members to serve on the council.  This year, as we continue to work towards building a School Council that is representative of our school community, we are reserving one of these openings for a council member who also speaks a language other than English. Serving on the council is a commitment of only about an hour a month and meetings will be held on the last Friday of each month from 7:30 - 8:20 a.m.  It is a fun and engaging way to get directly involved in our students' education at Bowen.  Each term on the council runs for 3 years. If you are interested in joining the council, please email one or both of the co-chairs by September 26 to let them know. (Principal Guzzi at Diana_Guzzi@newton.k12.ma.us and Angela Halliwell at ahalliwell@outlook.comIf more than three parents are interested, we will hold an election in which all parents in the school community will have the opportunity to cast an anonymous ballot for the candidate(s) of their choice. 

Thank you for your consideration!
