    School Culture & Climate Survey

    We are excited to announce the administration of the National School Climate Center’s Comprehensive School Climate Inventory. This survey measures conditions for learning by asking the real experts each year – students, parents and faculty. The different versions of the survey are designed to assess perceptions of the school environment, including safety, relationships, support for learning, and the environment within the school. This is your chance to make your voice heard. Together we will seek creative solutions that will support a world-class education that provides students with 21st century skills to succeed out in the real world. Studies have shown this work matters. Improving skills such as solving problems, working out conflict and working with other people in a group has led to double-digit increases on achievement test scores, improved classroom behavior and improved attitudes.....select the link above for more

We looked at some narrative works from Edgar Allen Poe and discuss what influenced him to write in the style that he did.

    Do You See What I See?

    Bennett's bulletin boards have some very creative themes while displaying some very amazing published writings! While one bulletin board was waiting for the published pieces they had a “Winter-Weather Advisory” posted that continued to read … "The daily flurry of writing in room 31 could develop into a blizzard of finished pieces at any time. Expect large sheets of crystallized ideas leading to a near whiteout condition. This will precipitate a change in our bulletin board! Keep watching for updates." Another one reads, “Deck the Halls with Narrative Fiction! Fa La La La! “Snowology” is sporting fun facts and information regarding, yes, snow! One can only imagine what will appear on the bulletin board that has the following message on it … “Every piece of the universe, even the tiniest little snow crystal, matters. We all have a place in the pattern”…..select the link above for pictures
