October's Digital Citizenship Theme: Responsibility, Privacy, & Security

Each month, Bennett will connect the monthly character trait to the district digital citizenship theme to help develop students who are good digital citizens. The monthly character trait for October is Responsibility. Students will focus on keeping their personal information secure and private and using technology responsibly.

K-2 Texas 2X2 reading challenge

The Bennett Learning Commons has ONE copy of each book. We ask that parents, students, and teachers only check out ONE book per visit and that 2X2 books are returned in a timely manner to allow all of our Kinder, 1st, and 2nd grades an equal opportunity to read the books and complete the challenge.


Congratulations to our latest Texas 2X2 Wall of Fame All Star Readers. These students have read all 20 books.
