Volunteer

We need volunteers to support Bowman and ensure our planned events happen. See our Open Volunteer Opportunities and express your interest using our Bowman PTO Volunteer Interest Form in Membership Toolkit (login required). We need volunteers for:

  • Math Materials Volunteers: a few Thursday mornings a month to assemble kits for our new Illustrative Math Curriculum.
  • Book Fair Volunteers: set-up, preview/wishlist helper, cashier, and clean-up opportunities from Oct 21 – 28. Help make our book fair great!
  • Big Backyard Volunteers: Fall walks are happening now – don’t miss out. Volunteering is usually around an hour commitment and no experience necessary.
  • We need volunteers by the end of November for the following events to make sure these programs happen: Stories Under the Stars literacy family event (Jan 2023), Family Math Nights (Jan & Feb 2023), and Bowman Writes Coordinators. We also need Families in Need coordinators and Lost & Found coordinators.
  • Lunch Volunteering: every day when lunch is served for 2 shifts a day: Grades K-2 (10:50-11:55am) and Grades 3-5 (11:55am-1pm).
  • All of our volunteer opportunities are located conveniently on the Volunteer page on our portal.
  • All volunteers must have a CORI Check to volunteer.

See below for signups, orientations, and events – we hope to see you soon!
