Parent Notification/Upcoming Event

Hello Benny Benson Families.

We hope you have a peaceful winter break and wanted to let you know about two special teaching events that will be happening when we return from break.

On Friday, January 11, 2019, we are having a guest panel present to our students about the narcotic epidemic.  All of the students will meet in the MPR as a school and watch Chasing the Dragon and then our guest speakers will talk to them and answer questions.  We will have an FBI agent, ER physician, two addicts in recovery and the U.S. Department of Justice Community Outreach Coordinator along with some support dogs.  The presentation will be about two hours long.

 Our second presentation for students who chose to attend will be Wednesday, January 16.  Planned Parenthood will be offering ASD approved presentations on sexually transmitted diseases/infections, birth control, anatomy and consent.  These will be offered to our juniors and seniors. Students will be receiving points for attending these presentations.  This is a very popular teaching event, so please encourage your student to attend.

 If you DO NOT want your student to attend either of these presentations, please contact the office at 742-2050.

 Thank you
