Welcome Letter from Principal Andrews

Dear Bowman Families,

Welcome to an exciting new school year! I am looking forward to start my second year as the Principal here at Bowman, Home of the Bobcats. I will continue to strive for student success, provide teacher support, and involve the community and parents.

Over the past year, I have gotten to know our respectful students, our insightful community, and our incredible staff. I have learned the needs of the community. As a part of answering these needs, Parent Teacher Association (PTA) was formed at the end of last school year to help make this year successful.


One of my most important goals is to continue to build relationships to have productive partnerships with our families. We know that students are successful more often in school when their home and school have open lines of effective and consistent  communication. I encourage you to contact your child’s teacher when concerns or questions arise. I am also available to you at
our monthly Principal Cafe Meetings.

In addition to building relationships, it is also important for students, staff, and community to feel safe on campus. I am grateful for our continued work with PBIS – Positive Behavior
Intervention and Supports. This will support teaching the children about being safe, being respectful, being responsible and being empathetic. This will also foster positive behavior in the classrooms, in the hallways, on the playground, and in the cafeteria. Our monthly assemblies will honor students who display this kind of positive behavior.


As always, we welcome ideas and thoughts to continue the increase of success of all of our Bowman students. Throughout the school year, committees are formed and meet on a regular basis - PTA, Site Based Decision Making (SBDM), School Site Council (SSC), English Language Advisory Committee (ELAC), and African American Student Achievement Initiative (AASAI). I look forward to working together as a team, and collaborating with you on all of these committees in order to make this a great year for your child. If you would like to join any of these committees, please let the office know.

Thank you again for supporting your child and their education. I’m anticipating another successful year.


Thank you,

Heidi Andrews
