Benson Band to Sell Old Uniforms

Would you like to own a piece of Benson High School History?

The Benson Marching Band has enjoyed their first summer season in new uniforms.  The old uniforms, that were first worn in 1993, are now being offered for sale during the Kid Day carnival on July 15, 2017.

There will be a booth in Roosevelt Park following the Kid Day Parade where people can purchase a uniform.  Buyers will then be sent to the band room to pick out their uniform.  Uniforms will be $25.00 and will include a coat, pants, hat, and plume.  Because there are less hats available than uniforms, when the hats run out, the outfit will be sold at $20.00.

There are approximately 100 uniforms in various sizes and conditions.  There are also about 15 flag dresses and vests.  Uniforms will be offered “first come, first served” during carnival hours only.  No pre-orders or pick ups will be accepted. Payment must be cash or check only.

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.
