Physical Education and Athletics Department

Physical Education Overview:

The staff at Bowman School supports physical education as an important part of the educational experience. The development and maintenance of a healthy body is essential for physical well being and good mental health. We strive to create an atmosphere through our physical education program for the development of leadership, sportsmanship and congeniality. Physical education classes are scheduled daily for Grades 4-8 students.
