You have to be a 7th or 8th grader to be a TA or Office Aide. You would give up one of your electives in order to become a TA or office aide. TA's assist teachers in organization, possibly grading and any other ask a teacher needs help with. An office aide runs errands for the office; like walking passes to classes to retrieve students and making deliveries to classrooms.

Bowie choice sheets are being sent to students today during their 8th period class.
Please review the attached Power Point for important information regarding choices at Bowie. Unfortunately, I was unable to upload the version with audio because the file it too big. The file is also too big to share through google documents. If you would like the audio version, please email Ms. Lopez at email@example.com and she will send it to you.
Complete the choice sheet and bring it on April 3rd with a parent signature.
Bowie High School counselors will be coming to Kealing to enter students final choices electronically on April 3rd.

Counselors will be going to social studies classes starting today, February 22nd, to have students complete choice sheets.
It is important for students to go over the course book to select electives carefully. When selecting yearlong courses, please be sure that you want to remain in that course the whole year. You will not be allowed to switch out of yearlong electives, especially fine arts courses and AVID.
