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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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 email@example.com
Bowmore School Council
The attached map outlines the general areas where each grade will line up on the first day of school. Teachers positioned in these areas will help direct students to their appropriate line-ups.

Further to the note below:
If you have not already obtained your child’s class number please look for support staff wearing orange vests – they will have class list information to share. Teachers for grades 1 through 6 will be on the back paved area of the school and will all be holding up signs.
For new kindergarten parents, the play yards mentioned are both fenced in areas and located
- On Bowmore Rd just south of the main doors, and
- On the south end of the school.
Teachers will be in both play yards to assist you. As usual, the first day of school is always a busy time but these measures should help kids find out where they need to be.
For those who are interested, the results of the survey are in and a majority voted for Friday. Friday received more than twice as many votes (48) as the other four days of the week combined (20). “Doesn’t matter” had 5 votes.
In addition to the details included in the image below, parents may also phone the school during the hours posted to obtain class placement information. For those who are unable to connect with the school this week, support staff (wearing orange vests) will be available for questions on the first day of school.
Hope everyone is having a great summer. Our Pizza & Subway Lunch team is gearing up for the next school year and we thought we’d ask the school community a question. What day of the week would you like these lunches to take place on?
The poll has been published here and it will be open until midnight on August 25th.
Thank you for participating!
Please see the letter from the Superintendent about Administration Changes taking place at Bowmore. This letter is also being sent home today via email.
