Toy Donations

Please consider helping out the Girls Basketball program with their community service project this year.  They are collecting toys for the University of Iowa Children's Hospital.  Donations can be brought to school and given to your child's teacher.  Please watch this video that is linked below that the team has made.  We've watched it at school too!  Below are restrictions/suggestions the U of I has outlined for this toy drive due to health concerns for their patients.  Thank you in advance for your support in this project.  The girls are excited to deliver the toys on behalf of Benton Community.  Donations will be collected through December 16th!  The winning class in each elementary building will earn an ice cream party provided by the basketball team!

Kindness Calendar

Our PBIS team has put together Kindness Calendar for the month of December.  These are being sent home today and give 31 ideas for spreading kindness to others.  Some of the things we will do here at school, and some can be done at home.  Spread kindness every day in December!


Christmas Store

Kids have a chance to buy items at the PTO Christmas Store on Tuesday, December 6.  If you haven't sent a list and money, please do so by the 6th!  Thanks, PTO, for putting this together!  It's a lot of work and the kids really enjoy it!
