BHESA's staff is committed to continuous learning and improvement, which is why we are asking for donations to aid in the implementation of FranklinCovey’s The Leader in Me (TLIM) whole-school transformation process for the 2016-2017 school year.
The Leader in Me is aligned with state academic standards and concepts. The process teaches students the skills needed for academic success in any setting. These skills include critical thinking, goal setting, listening and speaking, self-directed learning, presentation-making and the ability to work in groups. It also, provides a logical, sequential, and balanced process to help schools proactively design the culture that reflects their vision. Benton Heights Elementary School of the Arts’s vision is: “Prepare learners; empower leaders.”
We hope you consider donating to our cause so our staff and students may: "Learn, lead, love, and leave a legacy." Please feel free to share the link:
Please make sure you are displaying your child’s car rider numbers. These are important for safety and efficiency reasons. If car rider numbers are not displayed, you will be asked to park in a designated parking spot, report to the front office, and show identification in order to pick up your child.

The second graders of Benton Heights Elementary School of the Arts were ecstatic when Blumenthal artist Lona Bartlett came to visit! Ms. Bartlett helped the students see the life cycle of a butterfly and a frog using puppets! She also brought the life cycle to life with vivid stories of her childhood.
First graders at Benton Heights Elementary School of the Arts are learning about how humans interact with their environment during a Social Studies unit.
