Principal’s Message

Welcome to the 2019/2020 school year at Bert Bowes Middle School! As an invaluable part of our support team, we look forward to working with you to assist your child during their learning journey! We believe that a supportive partnership with each family can promote a positive experience for each student during their time with us! 

We welcome parent involvement in our school, so let us know if you would like to volunteer!  PAC meetings take place at 9:30am on the last Wednesday of each month.  If you’re able to join us, your input would be appreciated.  Whether you are able to attend these meetings or not, if you would like to receive the meeting minutes, please email Jennifer Cullen (jcullen@prn.bc.ca) and ask to be added to the PAC email list.

As a Middle School we have an on-campus policy, which means that once students arrive at the school they are expected to stay on-campus throughout the day.  This is to ensure the health and safety of your child, as we are not able to provide supervision for those who leave campus.

At Bert Bowes, we believe nutrition is strongly related to good overall health and success in learning!  Therefore, we are pleased to offer a quality food program for your child through our canteen. We anticipate that this program will begin on September 11th, 2019.  Until this time, please plan on sending a lunch with your child.  Detailed information regarding the menu will be posted on the school website at bowes.prn.bc.ca  Please note, we will not be permitting any outside food vendors (eg. Skip the Dishes, various pizza business, etc.) to deliver to Bert Bowes. 

If you should need to sign your child out during the school day, for their safety and security, please sign them out at the office when you pick them up.  As well, we need you to sign them back in when you return them to the school

In advance, I would like to take this time to thank you for your support this year in ensuring the best possible learning opportunities for your child! I look forward to getting to know them during their time with us!

Sincerely,

Jason Gill

Principal, Bert Bowes Middle School
