What We Do: We are much more than picnics and parties, although we do that too! We bridge the gap between school and home; between city funds and individual school needs. We are parents like you that care about our child’s education

  • Keep you plugged in to city and state-wide educational issues that impact you
  • Act as your collective voice with the Principal and School Board on key issues.
  • Raise money to purchase technology for our school and classrooms.
  • Support our teachers with grants for new programs; funds for teacher training; room parents.
  • Bring in creative arts & sciences programs including author visits, concerts, science presentations and more. (2 per grade, per year!)
  • Host Project Explore in the PTO-kept outdoor vegetable and herb garden.
  • Support Understanding our Differences, an award-winning program that fosters respect, tolerance and compassion

Plus, we do the fun stuff too including a Back to School picnic, Halloween Party, Bowen International Potluck Dinner, Bowen’s 2nd annual Mystery Dinner, and Bowen Staff Appreciation Events.
