Benton Middle School collected 385 pounds of pop tabs (about 10 large black trash bags full) for the Ronald McDonald House.

“Clinton McDonald, Defensive Tackle for the NFL Tampa Bay Buccaneers and local Arkansas native came by the House this week.  Clinton delivered Baskets of Hope to the parents currently calling Ronald McDonald House “home”, so they could have a fun surprise when they next visited their seriously ill children in the hospital. A bag filled with treats for the parents was also provided.

We also opened a salon for these families,  in particular, those whose children will be in the hospital for several months.  Hair stylists have donated their time to come to the House once a week to shampoo, cut and give a much needed little perk and possibly relieve some stress, even for just a moment, for these parents.

The pop tabs you collected helps us with operational expenses that keep our doors open, and allow us to continue to provide these services as well as a  “home away from home” for families in their most desperate time. Your students should be very proud of themselves!”

Below are the results. The schools brought in almost 4000 pounds of Pop Tabs!

Maggie George had the dream of starting a debate team, but it was the middle of the season and who would sponsor it? Mrs. Andrews agreed to take on the task and decided to let them compete.  The team went to 5 tournaments including the Tournament of Champions (state).  To qualify for TOC, one must be in the top 3 overall speakers, reach quarterfinals twice, or semifinals or finals once.  At each tournament, the team brought home lots of hardware.  BHS is now the school on everyone's lips.  At TOC, Kobe worked hard to prep his team for every round.  Maggie reached quarterfinals at TOC and placed in the top 3 speakers.  Timothy won State Champion.  Go BHS Debate!

Congratulations to Maggie George - Vice President, Timothy Abel Hill, Kobe Johnson - President, and Mrs. Andrews, sponsor.

Three Benton School District counselors were selected as Counselors of the Year by the Southwest Region of the Arkansas School Counselor Association, the largest in the state with 162 members. Each year candidates for the award are nominated and elected by their peers. These winners will now compete against counselors from the other regions of the state for counselor of the year in each of their levels. The state winners will move on to complete as the national counselor of the year. All of the Benton counselors are involved in their professional organization as a team effort. The Southwest Region's annual meeting took place in Benton at our Professional Development Center with all of our counselors working together to have a successful conference. We are fortunate to have these ladies working in our district. Congratulations to each of them!
