OPS has partnered with the Benson High School Foundation to build a beautiful multi services health center. The drawings are nearly complete, and construction should begin soon.
Along with the new health center, Benson will receive a facelift! A new beautiful entrance for the north side is in the works. Contemporary, exciting and beautiful words to describe the new entrance.
To accommodate the necessary changes for a Medical Center a new snack bar and bookstore will be added to this area. The Foundation will need to raise $250,000. This would include new furnishings to make an attractive space. Learn more...
Provide school t shirts, fleeces, hoodies etc. to participants in organizations, extracurricular activities and school teams. The shirts would say Band, Tennis, Art and whatever the activity is. The school needs to build pride in the school, brand itself and show the community that great things are happening at Benson.
HALL OF FAME
Build a Hall of Fame area with a tribute to the past,--install good lighting and make it a place alumni would enjoy visiting.
TROPHY CASE MAKEOVER
Replace current trophy cases with what is happening today. The great art projects, music achievements, photos of participants in sports all need to be displayed and highlighted. Benson needs to sell itself to the public; things are happening at Benson but the trophies of old do not tell the story. This move will necessitate moving the trophy case to the Athletic Hall.
Interested in supporting a particular sport? Take a look at the GRD (GREEN RUNS DEEP) page for needs that have been presented to the foundation.
Develop a fund for to provide after school snacks and basic needs for students who stay for tutoring, sports and other activities.
Studies and past uses of incentives improve attendance and classroom performance. Some local schools reward students for attending after school events, school games. Teachers want to reward Benson students who achieve perfect attendance, who raise their grades etc. Other schools award iPods, iPhones, etc. Benson would like to award gift cards, school shirts, electronics etc.
