Benton Weekly Update
Week 16: December 7-11, 2020
9 Days and counting!
One of the most unusual semesters of school ever is coming to a close in 9 days. Students should be wrapping up projects, studying for final exams, and making sure all work is completed and turned in by the end of this week.
Open Enrollment for NLMUSD schools has begun and will continue through the end of January. Benton will host a Virtual Orientation for parents on Tuesday, December 15th. (See flyer below) If you have friends or neighbors who have children starting middle school, be sure to let them know that in addition to a strong academic program with honors courses, Benton is the destination for the Arts!
We know that with the closure of Los Coyotes, many parents are considering which school is the best fit to meet their child's needs. For anyone who would like to learn more about Benton, we are offering Virtual Tours and are eager to share about our wonderful programs and staff!
The District's Mental Health and Wellness website has many resources to support students and families during this difficult time.
If you need access to your child's Schoology account or the Parent Portal, contact Ms. Ridgeway firstname.lastname@example.org
