Back To School Apple

We will be paving the small parking lot and so class lists will be posted on Monday at 4:30pm. The lists will be located in the window box on the side of the office building.

If you take pictures of the class lists, please be respectful of others and do not post the lists on social media.

Returning Middle School students will be able to log onto their Jupiter accounts to look up their classes Friday night. ALL Middle School students, including new MS students can pick up their class lists the morning school starts. There will be a table in front of the office with class lists.

We look forward to seeing everyone on August 23rd!

Registration is now open for Bowman PTO's 4th Annual Golf Tournament/Dinner & Auction. This year's event will be held at the Ridge Golf Course on Sunday, April 30th. Individuals, foursomes, and dinner/auction attendees can purchase tickets on the Bowman PTO website. Don't delay, registration closes on April 24th!


This year’s endeavor is to raise money for our new Community Multipurpose Center which will include a Gymnasium, Band & Choir Rooms and a separate Media Center. The Ackerman Charter School District, using reserves and financing will begin construction this spring. When completed there will be an amazing new structure and expanded parking with greater ease for ingress and egress. However, there is much to be done to outfit it. Score boards to bleachers, audio & video systems, projectors to flexible furniture, we need it all. Your donations would help support this major undertaking.

See you on the green!

In our ongoing effort to best serve our students and families, we are seeking responses to our 2016-17 LCAP questionnaire.

Each family needs to complete the survey only once, and should take approximately 10 minutes to complete. Survey responses must be completed by Friday, March 3rd.


Three (3) completed survey respondents will be entered to win a $5 gift card to a local merchant. All surveys responses are anonymous and will not be connected to names entered into the gift card drawing.


Parents and guardians will be sent the questionnaire link to their personal email address on file. If your email address has recently changed, please contact the school office to update our records. If you did not receive the email with the questionnaire link, please check your spam folder and then contact the office for further assistance.

What is LCAP?


The Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) is an important instrument for measuring our progress as a high-performing school district, and we want to illuminate this process as Bowman works to meet new state requirements.


The LCAP is a requirement of the changes to state funding made by the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF). The LCFF is the state’s new funding formula for education that provides decision-making power to local education agencies, empowering districts to act based on the needs they see for their students.


In simplest terms, the LCAP is LCFF’s vehicle for transparency and engagement. It is the way that school districts are expected to share performance data, needs, actions, and anticipated outcomes that guide the use of available LCFF funding.

Bowman students are learning how to code! This week is Computer Science Education Week, where schools across the country are encouraged to spend an hour (or more) learning computer science skills. Our students from Kindergarten through middle school have been working on various Hour of Code activities, such as learning computational thinking with Kodable to programming Propeller microcontrollers in C. Thank you to our amazing teachers to take another step towards the 21st century classroom!

Check out Code.org for a collection of follow-up activities you and your child can do at home: https://code.org/learn
