The Arkansas Department of Education announced that 175 schools qualified for funds through the Arkansas School Recognition Program.  Awards are based on information from the 2016-2017 school year.  This program provides financial awards to the top 10 percent of public schools that achieve high student performance on the state required assessment in Grades 3-10 and the top 10 percent of public schools that achieve high student academic growth, which includes high school graduation rates. We were notified late last year for the 2016-2017 school year.

The Benton School District had three schools that were awarded funds. BHS was awarded $53,194.68; BMS was awarded $39,357.36; and Howard Perrin was awarded $31,600.80.  State Representatives Lanny Fite and Kim Hammer along with Benton Chamber of Commerce CEO Gary James presented the checks. We appreciate our teachers, students, administrators, faculty and staff for their hard work and dedication to our students.  Congratulations and thank you to BHS, BMS, and Perrin who are leading the way for our students and their future in education!

Please be aware there are t-shirt, calendar, sports paraphernalia companies (most out of state) calling our local businesses for scam advertisements.  They are selling ads for t-shirts, calendars, etc., telling the business that Benton Schools or Athletic Department will receive a percentage of the profits from the sales.  This is a scam!!!!   If a local business is contacted for sales of this sort, please contact the Benton Athletic Department at 501-776-5718 to determine the legitimacy of the business before you send the company any money.  Several local businesses have been hurt by this scam already.  Thank you.

Coca-Cola Consolidated and Kroger teamed up this past week to honor teachers throughout central Arkansas. Seven school districts (Benton, Bryant, Cabot, Conway, Pulaski County, Little Rock and North Little Rock) nominated 150 ‘Stars in Education’ to receive $500 to refresh their classrooms.  Each participating school district also selected one district-wide winner to receive an additional $1,000 from Kroger. On Wednesday, Sara Brown was surprised by representatives from Coca-Cola Consolidated and Kroger.  Congratulations to all of our "Stars in Education" winner:  Jill Crow, Connie Jeffcoat, Keri Coats, Kara Reynolds, Sara Brown, Sandy Newman and Amie Dougherty.


From an initial pool of approximately 1.6 million students, Jade Dorman is one of the approximately 16,000 students to be named a Semifinalist in the National Merit Scholarship Program.  She will now compete to be named a National Merit Finalist.  We are incredibly proud of her for this amazing accomplishment.
