HELLO Terrific Tiger Family LEADERS!  

Welcome to the 2021-2022 School Year!   We’re excited to begin this school year a few weeks earlier and with over 97% of our students back in the building for face-to-face instruction!  Thank you for your continued support and for truly being partners with us as we work to ensure the highest quality education and positive social-emotional school environment for your children.  Despite what this year’s assessments may show, we remain FULLY ACCREDITED and we will continue to GET BEtter with continuous monitoring and measuring student academic, social-emotional, and leadership growth!   Our C.A.R.S. are headed in the right direction as we focus on Community, Adjustments, Relationships and Student Centered!  

As we SHIFT into gear for an exciting ride this school year, let’s begin with the end in mind and pretend that it’s June 3, 2022 and we’ve just finished another awesome year!  Our goal is not to return to “normal” but to GET BEtter & BE BEtter!  We  are the DRIVERS of our DESTINY!  Our “Benzley” family rides together!  So buckle up for more lEading, lEarning, and reaching our NeXt lEvEl! 

Yours in Education,
Dr. Patrice C. Wilson, Principal
