Chanae Bowman
Guidance Counselor


We believe all students can learn, and deserve to come to school ready and able to learn without limitations. 

We believe all students deserve to feel safe, wanted, heard, and valued at school. 

We believe learning should adapt to the students' needs and our program should be equitable and valuable to all students. 

We are a unified team (with faculty, administrators, community members, and parents) of support for our students. 

The students of BGR1 will become productive citizens who exhibit empathy and possess self-worth. As confident individuals, they will strive to be continuously resilient and knowledgeable in an ever changing global society. 

The school counseling program, aided by a caring school community, will provide a safe learning environment that is equitable and accessible, for the success of every student. Our program provides social/emotional, academic and career development to aid in a lifetime of individual success in all aspects of students’ lives.  

Welcome to the Middle School Guidance webpage! My name is Mrs. Chanae Bowman, and I am the counselor at BGMS. I am very excited to be a part of the middle school and the Bowling Green community. 

My goal as a professional school counselor is to promote the academic, career, and personal and social development of all students.  I look forward to offering support to the students, staff, families and community.  I will be meeting with students individually and in small groups during lunch, conducting classroom lessons, meeting with parents, collaborating with teachers and staff, and consulting with community organizations to benefit and meet the needs of all Bowling Green students and families. I believe every child has a purpose and is capable of accomplishing their personal goals. Here at BGMS we value our students and do our best to help them succeed in the classroom, in the community, and at home.

Guidance visits

As the school progresses, I will be making visits to all students' classes. During these visits we will be discussing Personal/Social topics of importance to middle school students, academic and career planning. Please encourage your children and show interest in the things they learn here at school in order to promote lifelong learning.

Special Concerns

Any student can request to meet with me or they can be referred by a teacher, administrator, friend, or parent.  If there are special concerns about an individual student, please feel free to call the middle school and/or email me so we can discuss the concern and determine which course of action is appropriate for the situation. I encourage you to reach out if you have concerns regarding your child. I can be reached by email at or phone at 573-324-2181.
