  • Mr. LaFera's Classes Publish Realistic Fiction

    The students in Mr. LaFera’s and Mr. Michella’s Writer’s Workshop have focused the last two months on writing narrative realistic fiction stories. Realistic fiction is a genre consisting of stories that could have actually occurred in a believable setting. These stories are based on real-life experiences. The students created fictional characters that react similarly to real people. The stories depict our world and society. You will find a wide variety of depictions here. Enjoy!.....select the link above for more

  • Dear Families, In recognition of Veteran’s Day,

    In recognition of Veteran’s Day, we are creating a Wall of Recognition bulletin board in the main hallway at Bennett. Students and staff are asked to provide names and pictures of veterans they know. In addition, there is a form attached for displaying the person’s picture and/or name. Please include the veteran’s name and branch of service if possible. It would be nice to know if the veteran is a relative as well. Although a veteran is anyone who has served in the Armed Forces, we will be including people currently serving. When submitting a picture and the form, please write YOUR NAME and CLASSROOM/HOMEROOM on the back of the picture and form so both can be returned to you. In the office, there will be a basket for collecting photographs and forms. Thank you for your attention and support in this effort to celebrate those who have served and those who serve.....select the link above for more

  • To all people associated with Bennett

    In 2012, when the reconfiguration occurred the students expressed the need for a change with playground. The playground was designed for students in grades kindergarten through sixth grade. Our student government polled the students four years ago. As a result of this survey, students wanted to have more shade, more room to run and have the ability to climb more. The PTA, building level team, the facility committee and the student government have been working collaboratively towards upgrading the Bennett playground so that it is more age appropriate for the current student body.....select the link above for more
