The Benton Parent-Teacher Council is an extremely active group of parent, guardian, and grandparent volunteers whose goal is to provide the students of Benton Elementary with extra educational items and fun activities that would not be normally provided by the Benton School District. Membership is only $5 per family per year. Meetings are held on the first Tuesday of each month at 6:00PM in the elementary school library, although this is subject to change and we will post on our FB page any updates to this time and day. The group is always looking for new faces to join their efforts to support the elementary staff and students, and welcome any district resident to become a member. Everyone is welcome! 

PTC Meeting Minutes
PTC Volunteering Form

It is through this hard work and volunteer efforts, the kindergarten through sixth grade students at Benton Elementary are afforded many things that they otherwise would not be able to enjoy. PTC sponsors such events as: field trip buses, assemblies, book fairs, Santa Shop, Field Day, yearbook, John Manning Scholarship and special award parties. They also provide funding for classroom academic supplies, 6th grade T-shirts, individual classroom books, reading challenges/events, Kindergarten Clinic supply pack, Principal’s Awards banquet and much more. The monies raised for these items and activities come from fundraisers throughout the year.

PTC also raises money by collecting Box Tops for Education.  PTC provides prizes to those classes who collect the most Box Tops. You can download the Box Top app and designate our school as your recipient and collect throughout the year. Funds raised through these efforts are used to purchase school supplies and playground and gym equipment.
