Welcome to

James Bowie Elementary

We are the “difference makers!” Welcome Bowie students, parents and community to the 2016-2017 school year! My name is Mr. Peterson and I am excited to see everyone as I begin my second year at Bowie. I know the staff is excited as well. Remember, the staff at Bowie continues 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.

We are also setting our expectations high for academic success, and it is also our expectation that students will be good citizens at school and in the community. It will take all of us caring, working hard and holding the expectations to ensure a successful and safe school year.

Parents, you are a vital component to the achievement and success of your children. We can’t do it without you. 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. We 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 be the difference makers at Bowie Elementary!
