    Hammett L. Bowen Elementary School



    Hello to so many of my favorite people!  I have missed you and I am so happy to be able for us to work together once again!  Some of us will work together online and some of us at school. 

    I will be attending some of your classes with you and we will figure out our assignments and the work we need to do to become the best students in all of Hammett Bowen.

    This year I will be working with students in Kindergarten, First Grade, and Second Grade.  I am very happy to have some of my old friends back with me once again! 

    It will be exciting to hear about your summer adventures! (I only went to the beach 1 time!) 


    Most importantly:  How will you and your parents be able to contact me?


    Any time that I am in my office and not in the classroom, I will answer my phone.  The Hammett Bowen phone number is (352)291-7900. My extension is 50382. Since most of my time is IN classrooms I often will not be available to answer your call during school class hours, but I will return your call as soon as possible.  I am most often here by 7:00 a.m. and also from 1:45-3:00. (You might often catch me later in the afternoon.)

    BY EMAIL..that's really the best...I will return your message as soon as I am able, definitely sometime the day you send it.   My email address is Nancy.Carder@Marion.k12.fl.us.


    Please contact me soon and let me know the best way to contact you should it be necessary.   If possible it would be helpful to have your current phone number and your email address 

    News from the farm:  We have a new lamb. Her name is Beth and a new colt who is called "Biebs" for now.

    I look forward to seeing you and talking together!
