Bowman Experiences Auction

Friday, October 29th – November 10th 

The Teacher Experience Auction is back!

Would your child like to go on a nature walk with your favorite teacher? Or go for a picnic on the Battle Green with them? We will also have baskets from our corporate sponsors up for bidding.  You can find all these and more in the Bowman Experiences Auction.

The Silent Auction will close at 9:00 pm on 11/10/2021 and winners will be announced on Veteran’s Day. Hope you have fun tracking and bidding for these amazing experiences!


Volunteer Opportunities and Help Needed

The PTO is always looking for volunteers to help and support events throughout the year!  Right now, we are still looking for a person or multiple people to help coordinate a few special programs and events, including ACT (Arts Created Together), Map Night, Geo Bee, and Artsonia.

If you are interested or want to learn more about what these roles entail, email [email protected] and we would be happy to tell you more!  Most, if not all, of the help with these events can be done from home.  If you are interested in one or more of these roles, the PTO would really appreciate it!  Otherwise, they are at risk of not happening this year.

We always are in need of lunch volunteers! There are multiple shifts open each week. Please click on this link to Sign Up! Email [email protected] with any questions. See the new Lunch Volunteer Training Slideshow  and Updated Instructions for Composting.

Thank you to everything our volunteers do each and every week!
