The Benton Blurb
News from Your Principal
We are so eager for the school year to start! Our first day of school is Tuesday, August 23rd for grades 1-5, and August 25th for our kindergarten students. You can meet your teacher on August 18th, during our open house from 4:30-6:00. Feel free to bring your school supplies with you, but also please be sure to bring a proof of residence with you when you come if you have not completed the online update forms. We will help you with online registration if you need help and then will send you to classrooms.
