Principal Message

Dear parents and students,

I want to welcome you to Bowie Elementary School. I am honored to have the opportunity to lead to a school with a rich tradition for growing and nurturing students. As a former Bowie Patriot myself, I know it is a very special place where students can grow their hopes and dreams. I started teaching and coaching in 2007 before stepping into an administrative role in 2019. I have served in roles at both Central and Lake View, and at both the middle school and elementary level throughout my career.  I plan to work alongside our staff and stakeholders to continue the legacy of success established by Bowie Elementary School. Please know, we are fully committed to ensuring that our students are loved, inspired, empowered, and encouraged. 

My staff and I are truly excited to embark on this journey with promises to be the best year ever. Our students will have fun and new academic experiences, that will push them to be great creators, critical thinkers, collaborators, and communicators. As your Principal, I want everyone to know that I am truly excited to be here! Please understand, I am open and willing to exchange in dialogue with our community members and stakeholders. Please feel free to call or email me to discuss any concerns you might have throughout the school year.

I look forward to teaming with you as we continue to enrich and grow the students in the College Hills area. The future is bright at Bowie and the best is yet to come!

Ashley Gould
