We are concerned with the number of students who leave school grounds to purchase slushies, energy drinks, and pop before the morning bell. Meeting healthy school requirements, we ask that students not bring these items to school. At Bert Bowes Middle School we expect that once students arrive on school grounds in the morning, they are to stay on campus for the remainder of the day until dismissal at 3:09. If students bring these items to school, they will be given the choice to either take the item to the office until the end of the day or throw the item in the garbage. Please support our efforts in teaching your child about how healthy eating habits affect learning and overall health. Items sold through our school lunch program can be viewed at bowes.prn.bc.ca. This information is also available at the office.
