"Education is for improving the lives of others and for leaving your community
and world better than you found it." Marian Wright Edelman, an honored
advocate for children and those who are disadvantaged, said these words and
they are the foundation for Bowen Elementary. Our mission is to create an
educational environment in which all children thrive, reach beyond their potential,
and build a better world for all of us.
To achieve this mission, Bowen Elementary is committed to the development of
strong minds, kind hearts and courageous souls. Our staff is full of people who
believe deeply in the seen and unseen potentials within all children. We strive
to develop an environment of both safety and challenge. We strive to build an
environment that expects greatness, fosters creativity and meets challenges with
an invitation to try again.
We invite all to come through the doors of Bowen Elementary and join us as we
forge an educational environment that will benefit our children and our futures.
We are committed to today's students for the hopes of tomorrow's community. I
look forward to working with each of you and please let me know what I can do to
support our students.
