Traditions

 

Over the course of our history, Bowman has developed several traditions that keep our school community connected. Whether its something we’ve done since the inception of the school or something we’ve just established, we pass on these traditions to our new families and enjoy remembering them with those who have graduated.

 

Mascot

The Bowman Bee became our official mascot when we marked our 15th anniversary in 2010.

Logo

The new Bowman logo launched in 2015. This new look guides us into our next decades as we ignite the flame of learning, starting with our youngest with minds open to knowledge and moving to our eldest and fully saturated students, and finally identifies Bowman as a Montessori school with the reference to the hierarchical trinomial cube, one of the most advanced math materials.

Yearbook

The Navigator Yearbook is an annual tradition that started in 2000. The name was chosen to show that Bowman is a guide along our students’ journeys. Middle School students help with the photography and text inside the yearbook, and the cover is chosen through a schoolwide contest.

 

School Song

The Bowman school song was written in 2008. The students enjoy having their own section for each level highlighting their activities. We sing the school song at many assemblies and events throughout the year.

Bowman is a wonderful school
We are learning something new each day
Bead frame, checkerboard, stamp game too
We learn the Montessori way

Juniors explore the whole world through
We respect our friends and teachers too
Golden beads, story time, long and short chain
We love our buddies and do as they say

Journals, recorders, cooking so well
We love our sharing in Lower El
Spelling cards, cultural, stories to tell
It all begins with the morning bell

Bowman is a wonderful school
We are learning something new each day
Bead frame, checkerboard, stamp game too
We learn the Montessori way

Camping and field trips in Upper El
We are creative, as you can tell
Music, math, science fair, garden in the sun
And Founders’ Day is number one

Buddies and traveling, Shakespeare plays
We learn independence in Middle School days
Mock U.N., opera, languages, arts
We will all keep Bowman in our hearts

Bowman is a wonderful school
We are learning something new each day
Bead frame, checkerboard, stamp game too
We learn the Montessori way
