Thank you to all our donors! Please visit our campaign site for a complete list of donors and to donate online!
We have met the goal for the first of two initiatives, our BluePoint rapid emergency response system $90,000 and seek to fund the second initiative, $135,000 in Teacher Stipends for the academic leadership and extracurricular work they do above and beyond the work of their own classroom. We are over $45,000 towards the $135,000 goal. The SCHOOL ADVISORY BOARD invites you to make a difference with your support of the Annual School Fund! We ask that you consider a gift to the Annual School Fund as a great gesture to help retain our wonderful faculty. This week’s video explains how your donation to the Annual School Fund helps our faculty.
DON'T FORGET OUR GIVING INCENTIVES!!!!
All contributions earn an out of uniform pass for each child in the family at St. Ben’s. Don't worry if your child is in Preschool, a special reward of Bengal socks will be given to preschool students in the family since those students do not have a school uniform!
Each homeroom having 80% participation will enjoy a pizza party in December! Be on the lookout for your child’s homeroom Pizza Poster hanging outside each homeroom. Every gift received earns a piece of pepperoni for your child/ren’s homeroom/s Pizza Participation Poster. Once the pizza is filled with pepperoni that homeroom wins a pizza party.
The homeroom having the highest participation level at each grade level will also earn extra recess!
CONGRATULATIONS TO MS. KELLEY’S KINDERGARTEN CLASS (94%) AND MS. GRANITZ’S PRESCHOOL CLASS (81%) WHO HAVE EARNED THEIR PIZZA PARTY.
