Committees & Chairs

PTA Committees & Chairs

The PTA is an organization for our community run by our community. PTA activities are coordinated by Bowman parents who want to help our students by raising funds and volunteering their time. Please volunteer your time to serve on our committees and make a commitment, no matter how small or large, to become involved with the PTA.

Our committees represent varying levels of involvement for parents. Some are ongoing year long commitments, such as Arts Created Together, Big Backyard, METCO Family Friends, while others are for a single event or activity. These include the Variety Show, Bowman Creates, Staff Appreciation Week, and many others. You don’t need to be a committee chair to contribute – all of these events and activities need the support of many parents to be successful.

The chairs for each of our committees are members of the PTA Board and are invited to attend our monthly board meetings.

We categorize our committees and events on the basis of their contribution to the Bowman community. Click on the links to the right or below to learn more about each, including an explanation and contact for each.
