This is Teacher's Appreciation Week. We would just like to say, we are very glad there are such dedicated Elementary teacher's at our child's school. He is a student in Mrs. Hammond's and Mrs. Roberts' class. He has learned a great deal from their teaching skills. Plus since Mrs. Roberts' maternity leave, she has had excellent replacements, Ms. Dickey, Mrs. Newcorn and aide Mrs. Johnson. We think that he has accomplished so much in their care. Plus he has a wonderful speech teacher, Jennifer Irwin. Thanks for your coaching and encouragement. He will be advancing to first grade next year and we are not worried on who his teacher will be. They are all fine and dedicated teachers. Keep up the good work.

I absolutely have nothing bad to say about Benton Grade School. The teachers are all exceptional. The musicals that are held at Christmas are beautifully done and the children have programs for their grades also. Track & Field day at the end of the year is always an anticipated event. The curriculum is second to none. I moved and found that Benton was actually ahead several weeks in studies then the new school. Mrs. Kirkpatrick always has an open door policy and she is very approachable. If it wasn't for a 4 hour drive to get there every morning my daughter would still be there.
