Welcome to Bennington Elementary School

There are common strands that align Bennington Elementary, Molly Stark Elementary, and Monument Elementary. We share the same curriculum, district policies, assessments, and many other significant elements of operation. All three schools now use the same electronic format for lesson plans. All three have standard master schedules that are clear, consistent and offer common planning times which allow for staff to be shared among the schools. All elementary learners in the BSD are active participants in the Supervisory Union’s Comprehensive Integrated Three-Tier (Ci3T) Model of Prevention that addresses the needs of children in academics, behavior, and social development. All schools have posted, practiced, and reinforced the expectations that govern this program.
