Hi Grade 7 Parents!

Hi Grade 7 Parents!

As you may know, we have a tradition at Bowmore Public School that the Grade 7 parents help to contribute to the Grade 8 Grad celebrations. This year our Bowmore grads will celebrate this milestone on Tuesday, June 26 from 1-4pm with a dance and refreshments.

We are looking for donations of Chips & Pretzels (or other snacks), Watermelon & Pineapple (for fruit skewers) and a few bags of ice (day of). If you would prefer to make a monetary donation that is also much appreciated! Donations should be dropped off at the School office. Please email bowmoregrad2018@gmail.com to let us know how you would like to contribute! Thank you for your support! Next year, the Grade 7 parents will do the same for your grad!

Have a wonderful summer!

Grad Committee 2018

Change in Bowmore School Council Communications

Hi Bowmore Community,

Due to the low number of subscribers and views of the blog posts on this web site, we are moving to posting day-to-day descriptions and events only on Facebook. This site will continue to post copies of forms, minutes of meetings, and other content that is more static. We encourage anyone who is not currently on Facebook to consider joining because a lot of information is shared on the Bowmore School Council page. Council Facebook Page.

Facebook not your thing or you prefer emails? There’s a new option this year: per-classroom communication. Each class has one parent volunteer who forwards information from Council and the teacher. Those who sign up will receive this email once a week. If you are interested, please email bowmoresc@gmail.com and attach a copy of the consent form. If you do not sign up then you will not get the emails.

Some people choose to both follow Facebook and receive the classroom emails. It’s up to you.

If you have any questions or concerns please email us at bowmoresc@gmail.com

Thank you,
Bowmore School Council
