About Our PTA

About Our PTA

The Bowman PTA 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 PTA. 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 PTA plays an important role supporting curriculum based programs, infrastructure improvements, and social events – all of which are vital to Bowman. The PTA is not just the presidents and other board members. We are all a part of the PTA 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.


Why Join the Bowman PTA

Why Join? The number one reason to join the Parent Teacher Association is to benefit your child.  In doing so, you also help your school.  But there are many more PTA advantages:

Get Connected.  There’s no better way to know what’s happening in your school.

Discover Great Resources.  The PTA offers a variety of programs designed for students.

Tap into a Network.  PTA functions are opportunities to meet other parents and teachers, building rapport and discussing issues that are on your mind.  You can share ideas, concerns and experiences.

Watch Yourself Grow.  By volunteering with your PTA, you put your skills and hobbies to use for a noble cause – your child and all children in the community.

Speak Up.  The PTA can be a way for you to more effectively suggest change at your child’s school.

Witness Improvement.  By getting involved at your child’s school, you’ll be part of the solution, helping make positive changes.  Local PTAs play an important role in fundraising to provide building improvements, curriculum-based programs and social events.

Be a Role Model.  By becoming a PTA member, you’ll be demonstrating to your child the importance you place on education.

Membership Benefits  Membership allows you to take advantage of special offers with businesses negotiated by the national PTA. Because of the PTA’s size, it is able to partner with businesses and negotiate special discounts, fundraising opportunities, and other valuable benefits exclusively for PTA members. When you make purchases from these companies, not only will you receive a discount, but National PTA will also receive a percentage of royalties from the sale.
