Dear Bobcat Families,
I hope all of you had a great Thanksgiving. We are now in the home stretch of our 1st semester. December is the month of finishing strong. Please take the time to go to Power School and check your student's grades. Your student’s class grades will be final before December 22nd, and it is imperative that we push hard to finish strong academically.
Quarter 2 Benchmark Testing is coming around the corner and will start on Tuesday, December 11th and last through Wednesday, December 19th of the following week. As always please make sure your students attend school each day and are prepared to learn with plenty of rest the night before and a healthy breakfast each morning.
December is also a great time to contribute your yearly tax credit. Tax Credit Contributions are a 100% dollar-for-dollar credit. For those that pay Arizona state taxes, for every dollar donated, 100% is returned in their state tax return. People that are single can contribute up to $200 per year, and married couples can contribute up to $400 per year.
Many of our extra-curricular programs at Benson Middle School depend on tax credits to function. Tax credit contributions can be given to any club, sport, fine arts program, activity, or the greatest need. I want to thank you in advance for contributing your tax credits to any of our programs. See Venessa in the front office for more information on how to give.
