Dear Bobcat Families!
Welcome to a new quarter. The first quarter was amazing for many of us and was a small glimpse of all the great things to come as we move forward through the school year and continue to the tradition of being “On Track and Kind” here at Benson Middle School. With the start of a new quarter, it is important for our students to establish clear goals for the next couple of months and beyond. These goals will support our students as they face challenges while striving to be the very best they may be. Please take this opportunity to discuss with your student their academic and behavioral goals for Quarter 2. Try and review these goals with your student periodically as we move through the 2019-2020 school year.
At Benson Middle School, we are committed to keeping you informed of school events and your student’s individual progress. Below are some ways you can stay informed and find out how your student is doing in school.
• Engage your students about his/her progress in school. Ask them their grades and review with them the Student Handbook and discuss proper behavior.
• There is Internet access to your student’s grade. This can be viewed on our PowerSchool website at http://bsd-ps8.bensonsd.k12.az.us
• On a daily basis, you can check your student’s agenda and find out if he or she turned in his/her required assignments or has homework assignments due.
• Call or email your student’s teacher(s) or view their Class Website. Our teachers strive to return voicemails and email within 24 hours Monday-Friday.
Building positive communication and relationships between our staff, parents and students is important. We look forward to hearing from you.
Finally, I would like to invite you to our upcoming events on campus. Please see the below schedule of events we will be hosting. I look forward to seeing you all there!
