Benton High School would like to invite all incoming ninth grade students and their parents to an orientation on Thursday, March 23, 2017 from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm.
We will be following a new format for orientation this year. Students and their parents should enter the school through the front doors where they will be greeted by our Freshmen Mentors and will receive a folder with registration information. All parents and students will first go to the East Gym for a 30 - 45 minute presentation. Topics covered will be: attendance programs, tutorial services, school nurse services, athletic eligibility, accessing student's grades, driver's education and graduation requirements and electives.
For the remainder of the time, you will be able to walk around the Herrin Gym to talk with teachers in each department and also check out the clubs and sports that BCHS has to offer. Also, our Freshmen Mentors will be in the commons and will be providing tours of the school.
