  • Reading is important all of the time, but especially now!  A challenge has been offered to all 3rd grade students attending an UCPS elementary school. The Books and Brackets reading challenge will be from February 27th-Friday, March 31st.  For five weeks, students will record the number of minutes read while at school and at home. Beginning March 10th, UCPS will announce the top schools each Friday and show how schools are moving through the bracket to the winning spot. The top 8 schools with the most minutes read will get to go to Wingate University on March 31st for a day full of events.  BHESA’s faculty and staff are committed to making sure we are in the top 8 schools.  Please read, read, read, and read some more.

  • It is “Open Enrollment” time at Benton Heights Elementary School of the Arts (BHESA).  This means we are taking applications for students to attend BHESA during the 2017-2018 school year.  Yearly, parents must choose for their children to attend our school.  We give the students currently attending our school the first opportunity to sign up again for next year before we open the enrollment to the general public. It is our sincerest hope that all of our students and parents have been satisfied with the quality of education that students receive at Benton Heights and will want to come back next year.  Re-enrolling your child at Benton Heights for the 2017-2018 school year is a simple process.  Please complete the provided re-enrollment form/letter and return it to your child’s classroom teacher by Wednesday, February 22, 2017.  Returning this form on or before that day will ensure that your child has a spot in our school for the 2017-2018 school year if you are a resident of Union County and set requirements* have been met.  If an intent letter is not returned by February 22, 2017, those already on the waiting list will be placed in available spots.  At that point, late intent forms would go on a waiting list in order of receipt.

  • Second Grade Helps Out

    Before Thanksgiving break, all of the second graders helped out an animal rescue, Catering to Cats and Dogs, by creating ornaments. These ornaments consisted of a picture of a cat or dog currently in that rescue, and a wish list of what to donate for that animal.
