TONIGHT - MISD Board Meeting . . .

On Tuesday, February 27, 2018, the Bennett Watch D.O.G.S. program will be featured at the MISD Board Meeting. We invite all of our families to attend and show support. If you have photos from your time as a Watch DOG or any stories or anecdotes to share, please let our assistant principal, Rachel Constantinescu know.

Bright Bytes Survey . . .

The annual districtwide BrightBytes survey window is now open until March 9.

Thank you to all parents that have filled in the survey! So far, 267 Bennett parents have participated which makes us the leader in the district!!!

What is Bright Bytes?

The BrightBytes survey provides grade appropriate questions for students in grades 3-12 as well as all teaching staff, admin, and parents (PK-12). BrightBytes provides our campus with in depth data reports (infographics, charts, graphs etc.) showing usage of technology on our campus and next steps to higher level implementation of digital tools in the classroom. Our MRS, Angie Stallbaumer, has been trained on using the feedback to gather information for decision making on the campus. BrightBytes is a wealth for information to provide us with strategic planning options for growing with technology in the classroom.

Parents, please fill in the survey at
