Business Partners

As parents and teachers of children at Gower Elementary School, located off Old Hickory Boulevard in West Nashville, we, the Gower Parent Teacher Organization (Gower PTO), invite you to be part of something really special.

In the past, we’ve asked for support of the business community for each individual event we’ve hosted for our students. The Stomp-N-Chomp, Fall Festival, and Gator Gallop have been so successful in the past and we have each and every one of you to thank for that.

But this year, we’re excited to announce a new initiative – the Business Partner Program, or BPP, for short! For a one time gift, area businesses who support the BPP initiative receive special promotional benefits throughout the entire 2014-2015 school year!

How BPP Works

There are three sponsorship levels. Please review carefully and select the option that works best for you.

Why Partner with Gower?
We’re so glad you asked. Enrollment here at Gower this year has bloomed. We have well over 700 students, grades Pre K – 4th! And being one of the few schools in Metro Nashville equipped with the resources to aid special needs children, we work hard to create an environment in which all of our children can learn together, thereby developing character and promoting acceptance. Gower is focused on creating a culture of kindness and good citizenship in all children. We are supporting our efforts by using the “Character Counts” program, in which students are learning about the “seven pillars of character.” Academically, Gower students are thriving! In addition to our challenging curriculum, we offer Accelerated Math and Reading, Hands-On-Science, and Encore. But, we don’t stop there. Here at Gower, we endeavor to develop the whole child. So in addition to academics, we have an active Music program – which includes a Winter and Spring Music showcase – and a talented Art department that organizes an Art Show each year displaying artwork made by our children.And this year, we’re excited to offer a brand new course – Drama! So, as you can see, we’re doing BIG things over at Gower, and we need your help to make all of our kids’ DREAMS come true.

The Gower Elementary School PTO is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.  Your contribution is tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.  No goods or services were provided in exchange for your contribution.  You will receive a receipt for your sponsoring gift to Gower Elementary PTO.
