Bowie High School PTSO 

Partnering Together Supporting Our Students


Welcome to the 2021-2022 School Year!

It's beginning to sound a lot like Back to School Season!  We hope that you and your families are staying safe and well.  And we are looking forward to most of our students being back in the classroom this school year!  This year the BHS PTSO is sponsoring a BHS Beautification Day to kickoff the school year.  We are looking for students to help clean up the grounds of the school campus, pull weeds from the flower beds and parking lot cracks, cleanup debris from the sports fields and more.  We will only be cleaning up the main campus this year, since the Annex is still under renovation.  Service hours will be given to students that participate.  Please see signup link on the right!

1.   Our first PTSO meeting will be Tuesday, September 21, 2021 at 7pm.  The meeting will be held via Zoom.  A link to the Zoom meeting will be posted on this website, one week prior to the meeting date.

2.  Normally, our biggest event and PTSO membership drive is held during Back to School Night.  This year, Back to School Night will be held virtually, so our membership drive will also be held virtually.  More information to follow.

3.   As more information becomes available, the PTSO will work to keep you informed of helpful resources and other pertinent information that will help to balance your school, work and home life.

4.   Visit the main PGCPS site regularly for a ton of helpful information. You might want to start by reviewing the calendar

5.   Visit the Bowie HS website for school updates and events

6.   Connect with the PTSO via Band, Twitter, and Facebook

7.   Have you joined the PTSO or renewed your membership?  Don't delay.  The students and staff are counting on your support.  Check us out on social media for examples of the great work accomplished with generous donations of your time and resources.
