From the Art Room...

I would like to give a shout out to Kendall Meunier. Her photograph was selected for the 2015 PWCS Student Art Exhibit at the Buchanan Partners Gallery in the Hylton Performing Arts Center during the month of February. Less than 25 people are selected from the whole entire county and less than 3 people were from an elementary level. This is a big honor and I am so proud of her!

Bennett Elementary Earns School of Excellence Designation
School communities across Prince William County are celebrating the designation of "Schools of Excellence" based on performance in the 2013-14 school year.  Schools earn the coveted distinction by demonstrating high levels of performance, as evaluated by state accreditation and Virginia academic Annual Measurable Objectives.  Schools of Excellence must also attain an overall score of at least 90 out of 100 points of the PWCS Strategic Place-based measures.
The recognition program began in 1999.  The School of Excellence distinction is the highest recognition awarded to a school by the Prince William County School Board.  This is the 11th time that Bennett ES has received this honor.

Our Cancer Boy
When their classmate in Mrs. Starnes' class was diagnosed with a brain tumor 2 years ago, the children rallied around him showing support and compassion. They turned their questions into a story that is now being published through Archway Publishing Company. A Kickstarter campaign has been launched to fund free copies of the book for schools and hospitals around the country. Fox 5 did a follow up story as well. The book is expected to be available for purchase in October, and we will make details available once they are known.
