Welcome New Families Logo


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.
