Fall Conferences are scheduled for October 13 and 17 from 3 pm-7 pm.

Conferences can be in person or via Zoom. If you would like to schedule a Zoom conference, sign up for a conference time using the link below and then let the teacher know you would like to meet via Zoom. If neither of these options work for you, please reach out to your child's teacher to set up a phone conference.

Use the link below to register for your child's conference. If you need assistance, call the Bennett Office at 701.446.4000.

The PTA is need of volunteers:

We are looking for help to feed our teachers during conferences this fall. Please follow the link below to see if there are any supplies you are able to bring. If you would rather consider a monetary donation, you may send a check with your student to school made out to the PTA and in the memo put “fall conferences”, you can also text or call Liz at 701-729-8120 for other ways to give your monetary donations.

Please consider volunteering for the book fair this year! This is a great way to help our school raise funds AND each volunteer gets 20% OFF all purchases! Get a head start on your holiday shopping!!

Temperature Changes=Jackets & Coats

We are in that transitional season of temperatures. Please be mindful of the chart below and make certain your student/s have proper attire for outside recess and gym class. Be mindful that within the course of a day we can have a dramatic temperature change and while shorts and sandals might still work for afternoon, mornings are more chilly.
