Bowman Celebrates Artists, Poets
Bowman High School's best and brightest artists and poets took center stage at the 18th annual Day of the Artist and Poetry Festival to showcase their hard work and creative talents. Bowman has a strong history of promoting the arts and writing as a means for students to process their feelings and to better connect with their educational process.

The day included a gallery of student artwork and photographs, student poetry reading and musical performance by student musicians who performed their own original songs during the event. All student art, photography and writing can be enjoyed on Bowman's Web page at hartdistrict.org/bowman.

Hart District Saluted for Mix It Up Day Activities
The Teaching Tolerance organization has tabbed all of the Hart District schools as model programs for their Mix It Up Day activities. Model programs embrace respect and inclusiveness as core values of their learning communities. In order to be named a model program, a school must organize a Mix It Up at Lunch day and complete at least two additional projects that promote collaboration across social boundaries.

Out of more than 2800 schools which conduct Mix It Up Day activities, only 29 are awarded the model program designation and 15 of those are Hart District schools. The list is currently posted at tolerance.org/mix-it-up/model-schools, where a broader description of model programs is expected to be published in September.
