Benzie Central Middle School 

Dear Parents,

Parents, you are the first, most long-lasting, most important teacher in your child’s life.  That is why we, at Benzie Central Middle School, will continually solicit your involvement and support.

Research shows that parent involvement is high on the list of factors contributing to a student’s success in school. Our goal is to work with you to provide the best educational programs possible for your children.

How can you get involved? Show your children you are interested and concerned. At home, take the time each day to talk to them about their experiences in school. Ask about homework assignments. Check their PowerSchool each night. Your consistent interest in their progress and personal development in school will motivate them to want to learn.

Get involved at school by maintaining contact with teachers and administration. We are just a phone call and/or e-mail away! Ask questions. Attend parent conferences.  Be supportive of the exciting school-wide activities held each year. Let your child know you are working together with the school to help make their educational experience beneficial in every way.

Home and school working together as a team will make all the difference!
