As we look forward to a new year, I am filled with gratitude for the accomplishments of our students. Recently, I have provided guided tours to several visiting teams. Seeing Bowman High School through their eyes inspires me to continue to question, strive, and commit our focus to improving the lives of students.
Our visitors are always amazed by the level of student engagement at Bowman. Students were discussing, writing, and questioning their learning through active participation in every classroom. Channeling the academic curiosity and creative problem solving skills of our students is something that the Bowman staff does extremely well. Visitors also remarked upon the incredible positive energy and the sense of purpose that pervades our school’s culture, and the overall happiness that seemed a by-product of the connections between students and staff.
This year we have a number of opportunities for students to question and grow. The recent Connecting to Success event helped students better understand the business world, while the DFYinSCV Leadership Training and ASB Leadership Summit touched the hearts of students, inspiring them to reach out to their peers in positive ways. Our Career Day event provided students with career exploration from welding to culinary arts, and so much more. Over 100 students were recognized for their attendance, outstanding achievement, and leadership at our Awards Assembly in November. Congratulations to these stellar students!
Upcoming events at Bowman include field trips to the Science museum, the Federal Reserve, and UTI. Bowman ASB students are sponsoring a fund raiser to raise money for families in need. The Winter Holiday Family Support Program will be collecting donations through December. Finally, ASB is organizing a Habitat Youth Build Day to honor our military veterans who are our neighbors on December 1st.
