February 20-24 is School Board recognition week.  We take this time to celebrate the
service of the Benson School Board members.  Being a school board member involves much more than attending a board meeting once a month.  Board members attend workshops, conferences, and committee meetings.  Many of the meetings are held early in the morning or evening, after work hours. In addition, board members spend considerable time reading articles to stay current on education trends and to prepare for board meetings.  Board members sacrifice time away from work and family to fulfill their servant duties to the district. 

Thank you District #777 School Board members for your commitment to Benson Public Schools!

On April 25, 2016 Benson Schools hosted a public meeting to have the community identify the vision and priorities for the overall Arts and Activities program. Different committees made up of students, parents, coaches, and advisors worked on the priorities to identify goals and action plans needed to meet the priorities. A group of students took the vision statements from the public meeting and developed an overall vision statement. The Benson School Board adopted the vision statement and goals during the July meeting. Thank you to all the community members, students, coaches, and advisors for providing direction for BHS Arts & Activities.
