PRO Grant 2009/2010 - Connection Expo @ Bowmore

In case you haven't had a chance to read the May Newsletter yet, we wanted another outlet to give thanks:


The Bowmore School Council would like to thank the
Ontario Ministry of Education for the $550 Parents
Reaching Out Grant (PRO)
to produce Connection Expo
@ Bowmore on Wednesday, May 5, 2010.

The event took place the same night as the school’s Living and Learning

the school, the school council, students, families,
guardians and the community to celebrate Education
