We are trying something new for fundraising this year. Our "Only Once" campaign is an effort to keep fundraising at a minimum while still maximizing the amount of fun we are able to provide. Please see the Activities tab for more information!

PTO Executive Board 2015-16

At Bowman Woods Elementary, every parent and guardian is automatically a member of the PTO. There is no fee to belong and no paperwork to fill out. We encourage all parents to attend the General Membership PTO meetings, held on the second Tuesday every month during the school year, at 6:00pm in the school library.  At these meetings, we review upcoming events and ongoing projects as well as hear a regular update from our principal.

The main purpose of the Bowman Woods PTO is to serve as a conduit between parents and our school in the following three areas:  

  • Building a sense of community - Our PTO sponsors several social events during the year to bring kids and their families together outside of the regular school day. We feel these social events can help us grow together as a family.
  • Addressing parent concerns - The Bowman Woods PTO prides itself on providing a forum for parents to discuss our school and any concerns they may have.
  • Fundraising - Our PTO provides about $6,000 each year to help our teachers purchase classroom supplies and enrichment materials to enhance learning.
