School Site Council


We need your voice.

The school site council is a group of teachers, parents, classified employees that works with the principal to develop, review and evaluate school improvement programs and school budgets. The members of the site council are generally elected by their peers. For example, parents elect the parent representatives and teachers elect teachers.

Back to School

Principal's Welcome


Dear Bowman Students and Parents,

Welcome to Bowman Elementary School, home of the Bobcats!  Our school profits from a committed staff, involved parents, and about 535 diverse and enthusiastic students.  The rich academic program challenges ALL students to set and reach ambitious, intellectual and personal goals.  In HUSD our motto is, “Building a Culture of Success.” We believe that daily attendance leads to student success: every student, every seat, everyday on time!  Bowman’s activities provide physical and social avenues to match a wide range of student interests. The staff and students of Bowman are looking forward to all students having a rewarding school experience.

With busy schedules and prior commitments, we know that being informed becomes more difficult for parents.  Communicating with parents is of vital importance to us and we welcome calls and visits from parents to strengthen communications between school and the community.  Avenues of communication include:

  • Report cards are sent home to parents at the end of each trimester. 
  • Back-to-School Night and many other informative events are held to inform parents about important aspects of their students’ education now and in the future.  A monthly listing of these events can be found in Bowman’s monthly newsletter.
  • Computerized phone messages (NTI) provide parents information regarding student absences and important school/community announcements.
  • The PTA (Parent-Teacher- Association) provides opportunities for parents to learn about the school and be become actively involved in school activities.  Monthly meetings are open to everyone and often feature guest speakers.  A school phone directory is provided to all members of the PTA.  The PTA schedule of meetings and events will be provided via flyers, newsletters and NTI messages.

Bowman School offers many opportunities to help make your elementary years the best they can be.  I strongly recommend that you get involved in one or more of the activities Bowman has to offer: Parent Activities, Bowman African American Student Achievement Initiative Meetings, Parent Workshops, and Principal’s Cafes, just to name a few.   Although it’s not required, your participation in these activities will open new doors, enable you to meet new people, and reveal incredible possibilities in which to grow and prosper.  With your ideas, enthusiasm and participation, we can create and maintain a tradition of academic excellence.  Don’t be afraid to get involved!  Feel free to call the office with any concerns, suggestions, or ideas to make our community better and stronger.  Working together, we will make this a great year.

With Great Bobcat Pride,

DiShawn S. Givens
