Happy November and official start of the holiday season! The teachers and staff wanted to give a big thanks to all Benchmark parents and families for helping us make movie night pizza sales a successful fundraiser. Along with our recycling program and Jamba Juice deliveries, 6th grade is raising plenty of money to offset costs for the Catalina trip. Another BIG thank you to volunteers during our Halloween party as well. We couldn’t do it without you!
This month has many important dates to add to your calendar:
• 11/2 Open House 10am-12pm
• 11/6 STEAM Festival 3:15pm -5pm

Please keep an eye out for email notifications of signup genius rosters. We have a need for volunteers with larger vehicles, to schedule occasional pick up of cans and bottles for recycling. The recycling program is a lucrative way to raise money for Catalina. There are also several events coming in December that will require volunteer help, including our Biztown field trip on December 6th. Lastly, we will also need additional assistance planning for our holiday party that occurs in mid-December. Once again, thanks for all that you do to support the Benchmark family!
