Welcome Back!

Welcome back to Benton STEM!  Or, for those of you first timers, welcome!  We’re all so excited to be here for another year of awesome learning through discovery and leading with character!

Our kindergarteners will start on Thursday!  We can hardly wait!

If you haven’t bought your school supplies list yet, here’s a link to the materials your student will need: 2014-15 School Supply List.

And have you joined our school’s PTA yet?  Contact them here.  Your $5.00 membership fee goes a long way toward helping our school!

We’re looking forward to engaging your students in learning and  collaborating with yo along the way as well!  Your involvement with your kids is so helpful to us!


Fifth graders sort through paper from recycling bins to find examples of numbers to clip and categorize. How many ways do we use numbers?

Summer Engineering Camp!

Benton held its second annual Summer Engineering Camp last week (July 14-18).  It was a huge success and so much fun for all involved!  Students engineered marble roller coasters, pop-sickle stick skyscrapers, and so much more!  Check out a few pictures from the week below.

Our Spring STEM Showcase!

We held our annual Spring STEM Showcase on Friday, May 30th.  Our Fall Showcase involves community members sharing the STEM work they do in their careers and hobbies.  Our Spring Showcase, though, is different.  This time, it’s about out students displaying some really cool STEM projects they’ve done this year.

Check out the video below to see some of the awesome projects our students shared with us!

Hello Benton Family,

We’d like for you to give us some feedback on our plans for next year’s back-to-school Open House.  We’d appreciate it if you took a few minutes to fill out this anonymous survey for us.  Thank you for your time!
