A Message From Mrs. Salberg! March 2021


March 2021

Dear Families,

Welcome Spring! There is energy in the air as we head into March. Over the past few weeks, more and more students have been on campus due to athletic teams, activities, and increased in-person learning time, which I find refreshing. March also reminds us that it’s the mid-point of the semester and continued hard work and dedication are required. As a faculty, we often talk about the “3rd quarter slump” and we see a decrease in assignment completion and submissions, plus a decrease in classroom engagement in discussions and projects. This is a critical time for students to stay focused, and persist with their studies. If academic or social-emotional support is needed, I ask that you use this link to find the resources you are seeking. Your student can also speak with Mrs. Eby our counselor.   neby@bsd29j.com
 
 
Remember:

Be responsible for deadlines and assignments
Be ready to learn - computer is charged, you have what you need
Stay mentally and physically attentive during class
Sincerely,

Mrs. Salberg



SENIORS!!
Class of 2021

Congratulations Class of 2021

Mark your calendar The commencement ceremony for the Class of 2021 will be on Sunday, May 23! We want to recognize our graduates while adhering to safety guidelines, so abbreviated ceremonies will likely occur. Although we are still discussing options, we anticipate holding our ceremonies on Paul Reed Field. We are finalizing plans and will have more information for our families in April.


Seniors, we are also planning a class picture to commemorate the Class of 2021 as Bennett High School's Centennial Class! Yes, you are the 100th graduating class from Bennett!! We will work with our student committee to set up the date! Stay tuned!!

Summer School 2021

Credit Recovery

Bennett High School students must have 25 credits in order to graduate. We know that many students struggled during online learning this year and we want to offer a simple and easy way to make up for some of the lost credits during summer school. We are excited to provide this opportunity free of charge this year!


We are encouraging students who have failed a class to consider taking it again for credit recovery during the summer. This will help you in scheduling classes you want to take for next year.

We will be sending out summer school registration information in late April.
