In preparation for the first day of school on Tuesday, September 8th here is a note from the office:
8:30 Supervision of students begins in the school yard. At this time, teachers on duty will be outside to supervise students and make sure they are safe. Not all classroom teachers will be on the yard at this point.
8:40 (First Bell) All homeroom teachers will be on the school yard and at the classroom locations listed on the attached map. Each teacher will have a sign with their name, classroom and grade. Teachers will check their class lists as students arrive to ensure that they are in the right place. There are several teachers who will be “floating” in order to provide assistance to those who need it. These teachers will be wearing safety vests for easy identification.
8:45 to 9:00 Classes will be entering the building shortly after 8:45. Teachers who are “floating” will remain outside until 9:00 to help anyone who needs it. Anyone who arrives after 9:00 am is advised to go to the main office for assistance.
We’re looking forward to seeing you!

Principal McKay has provided a handout that shows the number of classrooms, how the classes are divided (e.g. split grade vs straight), and how many children will be in each for the 2015/2016 school year.
She is waiting for instruction from the TDSB regarding reporting classroom assignments. The format for report cards is clear but, pending the instructions, the classroom assignments may not be on the report cards being mailed in July.
2015 Classroom Organization
Play Day, which was originally scheduled for Thursday June 18, has been moved to Friday June 19 because rain is forecast for Thursday.
The Parenting and Family Literacy Centre at Bowmore Road P.S will be relocated, in September 2015, to another community where families have fewer resources and where it can align with the original service mandate established by the Ministry of Education.
Please see the attached PDF letter from the TDSB for details.

Principal McKay says that because Bowmore is receiving a new pool filtration system starting June 22th, pool classes will finish as of June 19th.
