Benignus Newsletter

Week of May 10-14

Note from Mrs. O'Dowd

I hope you and your families enjoyed your beautiful weekend! We are entering STAAR week at Benignus and your kids are ready. They have worked so hard this year and can't wait to show what they have learned. If you have a student in 3rd, 4th or 5th grade please make sure they are eating a good breakfast and getting plenty of sleep before their test day. The campus will be a closed campus on Tuesday, 5/11-Thursday, 5/13. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to reach out to me.

On Wednesday, May 19, 2021, Benignus Elementary will be having our 15th annual Field Day. The whole school will be participating in a number of physical education activities and games. The field day schedule and activity times are listed below for your information.

RSVP FOR FIELD DAY BY MAY 14th. Name tags will go home with your oldest student on Tuesday, May 18th.
