The February BISD School Board meeting was filled with all things CTE for National CTE Month. The night was kicked off with a hamburger dinner the advanced culinary students prepared. There were flower arrangements strategically placed around at dinner and in the boardroom that were not only beautiful but smelled amazing. During the board meeting, Emma Halfmann, BISD CCMR Coordinator, reported on classes, certifications, pathways, dual credit and ended with a video highlighting our students in action created by our audio-visual class.
Bowie Intermediate students conducted a Living History Museum at school. 4th graders were learning the genre of information text/biographies in Reading classes and after doing research from books selected from the library, they wrote biographies using criteria from the teacher. The students created their poster to be the selected persons body with a cut out for their face and as visitors approached them they would "come alive" and explain who they were and their accomplishments.
We want to thank Officer Majors, Officer Bob, Officer Hudson and Officer Berryman for their dedication to the safety of the students and staff of Bowie ISD. We have the best! Happy School Resource Officers Day!
During Kindness Week at BHS this club handed out candy to students during break. They were a big hit. #RAKweek #spreadkindness #bowiebuilt

Winter is expected to arrive in Bowie soon! We want to remind you that Bowie ISD will notify you of delayed openings or closures through our parent communication emails, texts, and social media posts. It will be reported to the local news stations so you can view them on TV.
Before freezing temperatures enter the area, this is also a good time to make sure your child has proper outerwear (coat, gloves, etc.) If your child is missing these items, check your school's lost and found or notify the school of your needs.
Stay safe and warm and we will see everyone on Monday for school!
