Welcome to the 2020-2021 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, but know this is a very challenging time.  Everyone is in our thoughts and well wishes during these unprecedented times.

We wanted to share how the COVID-19 Pandemic has impacted the BHS PTSO for the 2020-2021 School year:

1.   First, monthly PTSO meetings will continue to be held on the 3rd Tuesday of the month.  Meetings will be held via Zoom.  A link to the 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.
