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!  

  • Participation Awards!  

    • 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.
