Please complete the Glow & Grow Feedback Form so that we have a record of your feedback and can make the most of our meeting.

Please Join the Bowman PTA!
As parents, one of the best things we can do to support our children’s education is to get involved at school. We realize that not everyone has the time and flexibility to volunteer, but simply contributing to the PTA by purchasing a membership helps ensure that we can continue to support our teachers and provide programs aimed at enriching Bowman’s amazing educational experience.
Please join, or renew your membership and help us make this year the best year yet for Bowman!

Black Lives Matter.
“Each and every one of us is born with a clean heart. Our babies know nothing about hate or racism. But soon they begin to learn—and only from us. We keep racism alive. We pass it on to our children. We owe it to our children to help them keep their clean start.”—Ruby Bridges
There is no place in our community for hate. The Bowman PTA will continue to support our community and embrace our commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion, and anti-racist practices to break the cycle of racism and other forms of oppression. We invite you to partner with us as active “upstanders” who shape history and create a more compassionate, humane world. We feel it’s important to have these discussions. Now is the time for us all to embrace change and help stop the cycle of inequality in our country.
