Allergy Awareness at Bowmore

Allergy Tip #15: Avoid any products that do not carry a complete list of ingredients. For example, bulk foods and foods from on-site bakeries do not usually have ingredient lists.

Read all the tips.


The Bowmore Carnival is almost here! Mark June 14 on your calendar and get ready for an awesome afternoon of family fun in support of our school. From 3:00 – 7:00 pm the school yard will be converted into a Fun Fair.  There will be rides, games, food and prizes to be won.

This important fundraiser doesn’t happen without the generous contributions of time and goods from across our Bowmore community. If you haven’t gotten involved already, please see below for easy ways you can help make the carnival a smashing success.

Extracurricular For Students
Volunteer and Donations

We are still in need of volunteers for the Bowmore End of Year FUN-RAISER CARNIVAL, as well as donations of baked goods.

ALL VOLUNTEERS/DONATIONS WILL EARN 5 POINTS FOR THEIR CHILD’S HOUSE (Earth, Wind, Air or Fire). If you have children in more than one house you will earn 5 points for each house. Email us at bowmorecarnival@gmail.com.

Have you contributed to a Dream Basket yet? What’s a Dream Basket, you ask? Well, each classroom has been assigned a theme and students are invited to contribute items to make their basket the BEST. The baskets are raffled off at the Bowmore Carnival June 14. It’s a great way to raise money and you might be a lucky winner!

Collection runs from now until THIS FRIDAY May 31st. All items can be dropped off in your child’s classroom or the main office. Check out the Dream Basket themes here: 2019 Dream Baskets (1)

Thank you to all that have contributed to the Dream Baskets for this year’s Carnival!

Show your love for the wonderful Bowmore staff at our Staff Appreciation Lunch this Tuesday, May 28! We need people to help for an hour or so on set up and clean up (between 10:30-2:30), and most importantly, your cooking (or buying!).  Please email nancymbotelho@gmail.com to let us know what you can contribute – main dishes and sides are needed most! Thanks in advance for making this another great lunch!


No one can do everything, but everyone can do something!

Let’s all jump together to meet Bowmore’s fundraising goal of $5300!

On June 3-6 Bowmore will hold a Heart & Stroke Jump Rope for Heart week. This fundraiser promotes children’s health and helps fund vital heart and stroke research. You can help support your child’s fundraising efforts by using the envelopes to collect pledges or registering them online at jumpropeforheart.ca and sending out donation request emails to friends, family and colleagues.

Attention Grade 7 Parents…

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 25 from 1-3pm with a dance with refreshments and food.

We are looking for donations of snacks, jumbo freezies, fruit and a few bags of ice as well as volunteers to help decorate and organize the day before and on the graduation day. Please email bowmoregrad2019@gmail.com to let us know how you would like to contribute!
