Principal's Page

On behalf of our staff and students, welcome to Bowdish Middle School! I am excited for my first year as Principal at Bowdish. During my ten years working in CVSD, I have consistently been impressed with the culture and great work that defines BMS. Our goal at Bowdish is to pursue excellence and work diligently toward academic goals as well as challenge ourselves to reach our highest potential with integrity and honesty.  As part of our vision, we focus on organization, social skills, and the talents of all.


Our parents and community are a vital part of what we do. We communicate regularly with our parents/guardians and we invite you to contact us at any time. We encourage volunteers in our school and hope to see you at our events throughout the school year. Our staff also encourages student attendance at extra events; our students make our school amazing!


Bowdish is an active participant in the PACE program. Each month, you will see that month’s character trait advertised in various formats. We also focus on these traits in our daily work and celebrate student use of the traits. We partner with others in the community to keep our character education in the forefront of our work and consistent both in and out of the school environment. As Rockets, we are PACE:


R – Responsible/Respectful

O – On Time

C – Caring for Others

K – Kind Language

E – Effort

T – Trustworthy

S – Stay on task


I am honored to serve as the Principal of Bowdish Middle School, and I look forward to meeting our community!


Laura Lindley, Principal
