Our Purpose:

We come to Bennett Elementary to learn to read, to do math, science and to have fun with our friends! Welcome to our wonderful learning adventure!

Dear New Families,

We are exciting about the upcoming 2021-22 school year!

Here are a few things you can do at home to prepare your child for school:
- Read together every day for at least 15 minutes.
- Pretend you are at a restaurant and you are the server. Ask your child to order food for themselves while remembering to speak up and say please and thank you.
- Eat meals without electronic devices. Practice conversational skills and table manners.
- Play a board game where there is turn taking and a possibility of not winning.
- Give your child some practice with kid friendly scissors, glue sticks, and crayons.
- Play catch, jump rope, or hopscotch.
- Practice keeping a schedule. (Start with consistent wake up and bedtimes.)
- Practice good hygiene skills. (Ex. hand washing, flushing, and zipping/buttoning of clothing.)

If you have any questions about Bennett or are ready to register your child, please contact the office at (703)361-8261.

Respectfully,
Your Kindergarten Team
