Bennett Bear Business

Week of December 2, 2019

Greetings Amazing Bennett Families,

We are beyond thankful and grateful for our Bennett school family. Our staff enjoyed welcoming our BEARS back in the building this week. We hope everyone had a safe, fun and relaxing Thanksgiving Break with family and friends.

December is always an exciting month at school filled with teaching, learning, and extra events. We look forward to seeing YOU at school in the upcoming month.
