Welcome to Mr. Eggers' Office!
Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year here at Hammett Bowen, Jr. Elementary. You can contact me by email at Allen.Eggers@marion.k12.fl.us or by phone at (352) 291-7921.
From time to time it becomes necessary to discipline children for misbehavior. All teachers are responsible for putting in place a classroom management procedure that will enhance the opportunity for learning to take place for all students.
Hammett L. Bowen Jr. Elementary takes pride in being a school that focuses on character education as well as academics. We focus on the positive behavior rather than the negative. The positive actions of students are rewarded and as a result we have a school that often serves as a model for others to follow.
LUNCH ROOM CONDUCT
We believe the following guidelines will help:
- Be ready to place your lunch order in the “quiet” zone.
- Remember to get everything you need (milk, utensils, straws, condiments, etc.).
- Use an “inside” voice when talking to the person beside or in front of you.
- Sit in your assigned seat.
- Only eat your food.
- Follow directions the first time.
- Raise your hand for assistance.
- Keep your hands, feet, and objects to yourself.
- Pick up after yourself.
- Only take out (lunchbox, book, & teacher-approved items) what you bring in the cafeteria.
The following interventions will be used to correct student behavior:
- Verbal correction
- Private conference with student
- Change seat
- Behavior contract
- Parent contact
- Refer to guidance
- Time out
- Conference with Dean
NOTE: Teachers are not limited to nor required to use all steps before writing a discipline referral.
REFERRAL TO DEAN’S OFFICE
A student’s failure to respond to the attempts by the teacher and parents to change or correct misconduct will result in a discipline referral being written and the student sent to the Student Service Manager office. Hammett Bowen Elementary will follow the Marion County Code of Student Conduct for Elementary Schools when a child is sent to the office for disciplinary reasons.
NO TOLERANCE BEHAVIORS
- Blatant disrespect
- Drugs, weapons, alcohol
- Willful disobedience/defiance
