Parent and Community Volunteers
Benton Grade School is looking for volunteers to help us out in a variety of ways such as copying papers, preparing bulletin boards, working in our library, or working with students.  Don’t have a lot of extra time?  That’s okay. BGS will work with your schedule.  Whether it is one  or two days a week or just one morning a week, we will be happy to have your help.  All volunteers must complete a background check before they will be able to volunteer.  If you are interested, please contact the BGS K-4 Office at 438-7181.
