"We are the “difference makers!” Welcome Bowie students, parents and community to the 2017-18! My name is Mr. Peterson and I am excited to be back for my third year as Principal at Bowie. We will have some new faces at Bowie this year and I know the staff is excited as we prepare to be the difference makers! At Bowie, we continue to be committed to ensuring that we provide a safe, secure and nurturing learning environment that provides your child with a quality education and helps parents become part of the learning process.
It will take all of us caring, working hard and holding the expectations to ensure a successful and safe school year. I am excited to announce that we are going to implement PBIS (Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports) this year and give the students a real part of ownership in the building, the behavior, the safety of the school and the positives that we sometimes don’t give out enough. We are also setting our expectations high for our academic culture, and we can’t forget our high expectation that students will be good citizens at school and in the community.
Parents, you are a vital component to the achievement and success of your children. We can’t do it without you. You are difference makers too! We look forward to parents working hard on goals to be successful, providing consistent attendance and supporting daily work. We also need parents to help at school. Get involved! Volunteer at school and/or check out our PTO! If you have any questions about how you can help, please call Mr. Peterson at school.
Together we can work hard, stay safe and achieve our goals while meeting our expectations. We all have the responsibility to create a legacy of learning for our children. “The Difference Makers” look forward to working with all of you and educating “our” children this year! We must believe to achieve and make sure all of us can contribute to make Bowie the best Elementary!
