Bowdon Elementary Students “Give Back” to the Community
May 04 2017
Bowdon Elementary students participated in the 2nd annual Bowdon Gives Back service program. Local business partners and Bowdon Main Street partnered with BES to help students with several service projects including, donating fruit to Bowdon Senior Citizens, working at the Carroll County Veterans Memorial Park, playing board games and giving gift bags of toiletry items and cards to residents of a local nursing home, volunteering for preparation of Bowdon Love Loud Free Yard Sale, volunteering at Bowdon City Library and cleaning up the school garden.
“As ONE BOWDON, our mission is to educate with pride, the head, heart and hands for today and tomorrow,” said Lorie Teal, Bowdon Elementary School Principal. “Although we are giving to others through this program, we feel that our students receive the greatest gift in learning the importance of community service.”
