Benfield Family Newsletter

February 12, 2023

Greetings Benfield Families!

I would like to send out a huge thank you to all the parents and family members who supported the Benfield Variety Show. It was a hit! The students demonstrated their talents with excellence, and all are so proud of the work that went into their performances. They really did a wonderful job!

The night would not have been possible without the amazing organization, planning, and time of Kelly Conklin. Kelly, you did an amazing job, and we are all very grateful for your time and dedication to making the Variety Show a success.

Arrival and Dismissal Updates

Car Riders: Once you are in the car line, please do not pull around other cars. If your child is not able to get out of the car themselves, you will need to park and walk your child to the sidewalk using the cross-walk.

Tardy Students: Any student who arrives after 8:00 a.m. is considered tardy. We continue to have many students who arrive late to school. Even when a child is 5 minutes late to class, this impacts their ability to be ready and prepared for the school day.

When your child is tardy, please walk them into school. An adult needs to sign the child in to school when late.

The Benfield PTO would like to give a warm February welcome to our sponsor, BRK Financial, LLC! At BRK Financial, LLC, we believe many executives, professionals, business owners and retirees lack professional guidance in an ever-growing complex financial landscape. The process employed by our team of professionals differs from other financial professionals, who may focus on products or only on certain aspects of your finances. Instead, we take a holistic approach by serving as the “concierge” for your broad financial needs Our purpose is to help bring financial order to your life…And keep it that way! We would be glad to help you.

Your PTO
