Parents will receive registration information for Illuminate at back-to-school night.
IMPORTANT- Back To School Information
Back to School Night- Benton Middle School- Back to School Night will be Thursday, August 28th. We will begin with 6th grade parents attending their student’s schedule at 5 pm. All students and parents will gather for a pep rally at the stadium at 6:30 pm. This pep rally will showcase the band as well as various spirit groups. 7th and 8th grade parents will then attend their student’s schedule beginning at 7:00 pm. As always, this is not a time to conference with your student’s teacher but a time to meet, greet, and gain an understanding of classroom expectations. We look forward to seeing you there!
Tiger Tech Initiative- Integrating, Synchronizing, and Networking
September 22nd- 26th
Tiger Tech Initiative will be our school wide 2014-2015 fundraising effort concentrated on bringing integrated technologies to all the students of Benton Middle School. Our ultimate goal is to provide one-to-one computing for our students. Beginning this year we will forgo the typical general-fund, cookie dough, pizza sale type fundraiser. Consequently, opportunities will be provided for our families to contribute to an isolated fund focused on fulfilling properly identified technological needs of our students. Community, corporate, and individual tax deductible sponsorships are welcome! Please stay tuned as more details will be sent home with your child and/or electronically sent via email.
Cyber Bullying, Sexting, Teen Suicide Awareness Seminar
Tuesday, November 11th 6pm
With social media quickly evolving in front of our very eyes, it is almost impossible to reject or hide from this new sensation. Unfortunately these media outlets offer adolescents new ways to access communication/entertainment and the long-term effects are often times detrimental or still unknown. Conversations with community stakeholders have expressed that we are experiencing this phenomenon first hand not only in our schools but in our churches and homes as well. Therefore Benton Middle School will host its 2nd Annual Cyber Bullying, Sexting, and Teen Suicide Awareness Seminar. We feel this event was a success last year and we hope to see you there again this year.
Don’t forget to frequently check our website and calendar for important updates, band concerts, and athletic practices and schedules. Thank you and looking forward to a great year! Tiger Pride!
