Ensuring our Students Are Successful!
All Systems Go!
Administration has visited all grade level classrooms to go over campus expectations. We went over things like:
- Dress Code-No Ripped Jeans
- Respect!!! It is the one rule we remember. In every category, respect will ensure you have a successful day!
- Electronic Devices-Students may not use them at any time, unless the teacher allows it in class only during that period.
- Attendance-Tardy, absences
- Lunch Room-Behavior and expectations
These visits were fun and very informative to all of the students----they didn't fall asleep! They were active participants and even asked questions!
Teachers, we hope that these presentations will help minimize guide the cherubs to do the right thing!

Bowman Middle School
"Bowman spirit has grown leaps and bounds, but spirit never grows old." (Plano Star-Courier, May 14, 1969)
Bowman Middle School, built in 1968 and first opened as Bowman Junior High, was named for banker George Washington Bowman (1844-1921). A Confederate veteran, and later a farmer, Bowman was one of the organizers of the Plano National Bank in 1887 and served as president of its board until his death. He was also on the Plano city council and PISD school board. (A Century of Excellence: A History of the Plano Independent School District, 1999).
