    Bennett Elementary School Yearbook

    As long as Bennett School has been in existence, there has been a yearbook! A yearbook does more than provide a professionally published photo album of your child’s school year – it is a historical document on which we can reflect, forever – a showcase of the Bennett Community, long after we’ve all “graduated” and moved on.....select the link above for more

    “Book Buzzes” by Mrs. Lefferts' and Mrs. Speers' Class

    In reading workshop, the big goal of the year is to turn students into avid lifelong readers. It is essential that we work to create an environment that fosters a love of reading and thinking. One of the ways we do that is by encouraging students to “buzz” about the books they are reading. It helps to create an interest in books when we talk about the sort of readers who would like a book, give a summary of the book without giving too much away or even read a little bit from our book aloud to others. As adults we “buzz” about what we are reading with our friends and peers every day. Why shouldn’t we expect our children to want to do the same? Our students have “buzzed” about the characters, authors, settings, plots, relationships, vocabulary, etc. in the books they have read. Please take some time to enjoy the “Book Buzzes” our class has written!.....select the link above to view the book buzzes

    Social Skills/Cooperative, Non-Verbal Communication

    In Social Skills, students are learning about working cooperatively, and the power of their non-verbal communication. Students have also worked together to realize the importance of being part of the group – sometimes, we don’t realize that when our thoughts are somewhere else, it affects the group as much as if we are physically absent. Weekly “Social Issues” lessons are building students’ awareness of the role they each play in creating positive social interactions.....select the link above for more

    Student Council Served and Entertained Community Luncheon

    On Thursday, November 21st, our local seniors celebrated a pre-holiday tradition – The Thanksgiving luncheon at the Onteora School District’s elementary schools. This year, at Bennett, students served the luncheon, as well as provided entertainment. Max, Leon, and Alissa, all Bennett Student Council Officers, as well as Alana, a Student Council member, recited the Readers’ Theatre production of The Christmas Truce, about the WWI phenomenon – adversaries choosing to call a temporary halt to fighting, to share moments of holiday peace. The Bennett Jazz Band, conducted by Mr. Boyer, also provided some pre-holiday musical cheer – some familiar tunes, along with a student-written composition, wowed the crowd!! The entertainment ended with Max reading “Alex Haley’s Three Thank-You Letters” (the piece that follows). Overall, the seniors were most appreciative, and the students were excited to have shared in this moving exchange.....select the link above for more

They are hoping for this to become an annual event with different themes each year, depending on what the students choose.....select the link above for more
