RSVP for our Thanksgiving Feasts in November

Big picture
Each Bennett Bear is bringing home a hard copy of the Thanksgiving Feast RSVP invitation. Feasts are a BIG deal at Bennett Elementary. We want to make sure we have enough food for our students, families, and guests. Be sure to complete and return your RSVP to Bennett Elementary by Tuesday, October 22nd.

The sack lunch option will be a corn dog...

We are looking forward to hosting our October Friday Live this week. Be sure to join us in the Bennett gym at 2:15PM as we come together as a school family to recognize and celebrate the BEST students, staff, and parents.

Please arrive early and park in a designated parking spot. If all the parking spots are full in the Bennett parking lots, please park at the Aquatic Center and walk over to the school. This is a friendly reminder to not parking in the fire lane or on the street on Round Hill Road. The safety of our BEARS is our #1 priority.

From Our School Counselor, Mrs. Thompson

We're hoping that 100% of our Bennett Bears participate in this year's dress-up days.
The Red Ribbon Campaign begins as National Bullying Prevention Month concludes, so
our dress-up days' emphasis will be on being both drug-free and bully-free!
