Fostering Communication

Benton Community wishes to thank those parents that attended the Parent Partnership Night at the Atkins and Keystone Centers on Wednesday evening.  We certainly have a common interest in mind in making sure that our students and your children have the most positive educational experience possible at Benton.  

The importance of the partnership between the school and the home should not be taken lightly and we value your interest and support in the education of our students.  There are many ways that we can foster communication throughout the school year and we hope that you had the opportunity to find out how technology and social media can support this work.  Thanks again for your support of the Bobcat Family!
