Five Things You Need to Know
1 - SAFETY REQUEST: RING THE BELL AT THE FRONT DOOR TO ENTER THE BUILDING
Safety is our number one task at Ben Hem. When students feel safe at school they do their best learning. An important safety protocol is that every adult that wants to enter our build is buzzed in by our front office. Please do not ask teachers, students, or exiting visitors to hold the door so you can enter. We have a clear protocol to receive visitors and expect everyone to follow this protocol. We appreciate your help with this important matter.
2 - LOST AND FOUND
We will be donating items left in the Lost and Found to Goodwill during December break. The Lost and Found will be in the cafeteria for the next two weeks for students to see and take anything that is belongs to them. Please feel free to check it out if you are missing items before Friday, December 23rd.

We look forward to hosting our first student concert in two years! On Friday, December 16th at 8:30 am, fourth grade parents are invited to come enjoy this winter concert. The concert will be approximately 20 minutes in our cafeteria. Our students are excited to sing for you all. Fourth graders will then perform for all of the Ben Hem Bobcats afterwards.
