My name is Ken Simon and I am the Director of the Bowen Elementary Family Resource Center. I am entering my 20th year as the program director and look forward to helping our students, families, and staff with programs and services that enhance student learning and reduce barriers.

It is our hope that parents will become actively involved in their child's education. Statistics prove that when parents are actively involved in their child's education, a student's self-esteem and learning is increased.
