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.
Four classes can win $75 Scholastic Book Bucks! Join by January 3, 2021, to win books for your class!
With 2020 drawing to a close very soon, the Bowman PTA is going for one last push to get as many families as possible to participate in membership enrollment. We are currently at 46% enrollment and would really love to hit a goal of 100%! To help reach this goal, we will have an option where membership will be $0 until January 3rd, 2021.
We will also be holding a friendly competition between classes where four classes will be able to win $75.00 Scholastic Book Bucks for their classroom. After the January 3, 2021 deadline, the winning classes will be the Top 2 classes with the highest number of participants and the Top 2 classes with the highest percentage of membership enrollment. (A class may only win ONCE for the highest number of participants OR the highest percentage of membership enrollment – a total of 4 winning classes.).
This is our last membership drive for the 2020-2021 school year. Please help us reach 100% by enrolling in membership today and help win $75.00 Scholastic Book Bucks for your classroom!
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.
