Thanks to everyone that made it out last night for meet the teacher! I had a fun time seeing all the new kiddos and families. Also, special shout out to all my former students who popped in to say hello. Very awesome!

Enjoy the final weekend of summer! See you all Monday morning!

I updated the links on the bottom of this website. They are located all of the way on the bottom right corner of this page. Let me know if you need help with usernames and passwords. Have fun!

The room is all packed and now summer officially begins!

My first meal of summer… PIZZA READER! Our class shirt’s motto continues!
Email me a photo of your pizza reader eating pizza and reading this summer or any summer adventures and I’ll add them to the website!

Thanks to everyone who turned in their money for our class shirt. We have been excited to see Lyric’s pizza man drawing come to life. There’s an order form in your student’s red daily folder with more info.
img_0805PS = This is also welcome to any former students too. We aren’t making any money off of these shirts. I just wanted a fun shirt we could all wear together. Once a Benoit-kid, always a Benoit-kid.


Check the daily red folders for our class shirt order form! We decided it would be a fun way to remember all the fun we had together plus everyone could sign each other’s shirts. The shirt costs $9. The order form and money are due by Friday April 21st. The shirt is designed by the very talented Lyric in our class. 
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask. I hope you like the shirt design as much as all the students! Thanks!

PS – I realize it’s been awhile since I’ve updated. Expect a big photo update sooner than later. 

Tomorrow (Friday) is picture day! We will take our class picture and individual pictures. I sent home order forms at the beginning of the week, but if you can’t find yours there are plenty in the front office. We are taking our class picture at 8am so dust off those suits and find your best dresses and arrive on time! Thanks!


Since we never seem to be able to just take one photo… here are two for your enjoyment.

Also, HUGE THANK YOU to John for bringing Dr. Seuss pencils and bookmarks for all the students! Super awesome!


To celebrate the 100th day of school, we are encouraging all of the students to dress like 100 year olds. Throughout the day, students will take part in 100th day activities to celebrate our efforts during these first 100 days.
