Director's Column: "Batter" Up! Pancake Fun and Board/Committee Positions
I hope everyone enjoyed the pancake breakfast this morning! Thank you for bringing everything we needed to make a wonderful and delicious breakfast, for coming early to set up, standing over a hot griddle to keep those pancakes coming, and staying late to clean up. I also want to express our gratitude to IHoP, who generously donates an enormous container of pancake batter year after year. In all my years at Bowen, we have never made it through the entire container. I am proud to announce that this year ... WE FINISHED THE PANCAKE BATTER! It seems as if we are racing to the end of the year. The Pre-K students and many 5-Day students are attending Kindergarten registration, and, for those of us returning to Bowen, it is time to think about the 2019-2020 Board and committees. I have always said that the more you put into Bowen, the more you get out of Bowen. Back when my children attended, I remember being approached to volunteer for 3-day enrollment and feeling nervous about saying yes. Once I took the leap, I was so glad I did! It was the first step in what has now become an ongoing commitment to volunteer positions... Cabot Fair, Cabot PTO Treasurer, FA Day PTO President, and who knows what's next!
If you have any questions about a particular position, please come talk to me or the Board Presidents. The goal is to find the right fit for each family. Have a wonderful weekend, and don't forget to set your clocks ahead! Best, Nina
