Thoughts other than Snow Days

It seems all that anyone wants to talk about these days - SNOW DAYS!  We're talking about them in the hallways at school and in the aisles at the grocery store.  Some kooky superintendents are even singing about them.  But I'm happy to inform you that we're not going to talk more about them at this time.  If you'd like more info though on how Benzie Central is handling these critical issues, please see out letter on Snow Days here...

The great thing about Benzie Central is that there's never a shortage of things that our students and staff are doing to be proud of.  If you haven't already, you should check us on on Facebook and Instagram where Mrs. Crossman is constantly featuring stories that will make you proud to be a Benzie Central Husky!  Did you know that our Football and Girls Basketball teams, aside from their success in their sports, were recently featured on the news for their support of Special Olympics via the Traverse City Polar Plunge?  Or that our newly formed middle school robotics team recently took home the "judge's award" and finished in the top half of a competitive field in their first competition?  Perhaps you haven't heard about an amazing new grant funded program at Betsie Valley that saw purchase of 30 sets of cross country skis for use in PE and at recess so that our kids get great exercise even in the dead of winter!  I could go on, but you get the idea.

Schools in general are often criticized for not doing a great job of promoting what it is we do.  We often get caught up in the day to day and forget to celebrate when our students and staff do truly amazing and remarkable things.  Benzie Central is working hard to make sure we DO take the time and energy to celebrate the amazing things that our community does every day.

I truly am proud to be a Husky.  You should be too!
