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
Open House; both of these events were a fantastic way for
the school, the school council, students, families,
guardians and the community to celebrate Education
