The Bowman PTO is an organization that brings together the people who care about the well-being of our children – parents, teachers and staff – to create an engaging and challenging learning environment for Bowman students and families. Inclusivity is one of the hallmarks of our PTO. All parents are welcome to join and encouraged to share their views and ideas. We are fortunate at Bowman to have families from countries all across the globe who bring a wealth of experience and knowledge. What unites us is our commitment to ensuring that our children receive the best education possible.
The PTO plays an important role supporting curriculum based programs, infrastructure improvements, and social events – all of which are vital to Bowman. The PTO is not just the presidents and other board members. We are all a part of the PTO and only by working together can we meet our goals and continue to make Bowman such a vibrant and exciting place to be for students, teachers and parents.
