For information about technology assistance and student help tickets, checking out and returning books, usernames and passwords, and current reading programs, please visit The Bennett Learning Commons Google Site. Information is also posted under the Learning Commons and Parent Resource tabs on theBennett Elementary website.

Virtual Student Update: We will continue to place a plastic tub on the bench outside the front of the school for students and parents to return their books. The return tub is only available during school hours. Books requested may show a status of ready in the Destiny catalog system, however that does not indicate the requested books are ready to pick up due to needing time to process requests and the need to quarantine books for 3 days before recirculating. Mrs. Stallbaumer or Mrs. Howard will contact you by phone or email. Books will be held for a week before making them available to other patrons. Also, please remember to return any books you currently have checked out before or when picking up new books.

-Mrs. Stallbaumer and Mrs. Howard
