Clubs & Organizations



    Students can participate in enrichment clubs at Hammett Bowen.


    Our purpose is to provide co-curricular organizations and activities to permit all interested students an opportunity to participate. Every effort is made to avoid membership requirements that would prevent this participation.  

    Safety Patrol

    The school Safety Patrol program has been praised by safety and education groups around the globe for reducing injuries and deaths among 5- to 14-year-olds, the age group most at risk for pedestrian injury. The program also instills students with a sense of responsibility and leadership, as each day they protect classmates going to and from school.

    TV Broadcast Studio 

    Our studio televises live announcements each morning. Student recognition is featured. Students operate the entire show with supervision from the media specialist. The crew consists of anchors, camera and sound technicians, announcers, video mixer, and assistants.

    Book Bowl Team

    The Sunshine State Young Readers' Award program presents a list of fifteen books chosen each year by a committee of Florida librarians. They are chosen for their quality and appeal, and represent some of the best in children's literature today. Students in grades 3 through 5 are encouraged to read at least three of the books, so they can vote for their favorite. Every year, the author of the book with the most statewide votes is presented with the Sunshine State Young Readers' Award.

    If students read 13 or more "Sunshine Books," they are also qualified to try out for the Hammett Bowen Book Bowl Team.

    Music Club

    Hammett Bowen music club which has forty three 4th and 5th grade students meet on Tuesdays after school.  We are performing for FAFO on Saturday, October 25th at 12:30 p.m. at the Gazebo on the Square and Tuesday, October 21 at 6:30 p.m. in the cafeteria.  Hope to see many of you there.

    All students will have music at Hammett Bowen during the 1st and the 3rd 9 week period only this school year due to the budget cuts.  There will be a referendum asking whether an additional 1-mill school tax is needed to help fully restore the programs such as music, art, P.E. at elementary schools on November general election ballot. 


    Also, make sure to visit  to see your child’s class performance in music class. Thank you for your support for the music programs.
