Hello Bennie Families!  You are invited to come and join us for our 3rd annual Bingo for Books event.  Doors will open at 6pm with bingo starting promptly at 6:15pm. The event ends at 7:30pm.  Both students and adults will have the chance to go home with some great books to add to their home libraries.  There will also be a free raffle for some fun prizes for all Bennie students!

We will be taking your gently used book donations, children and adult, until the end of the day Thursday.  We are still in need of like new stuffed animals for Book Buddies.  

FREE Snacks and drinks will be provided. Remember to bring some change for the 5th grade bake sale.   All funds will go for their “graduation” brunch.

Looking forward to having another fun event!

Spring  Fever 

Allen Park PTA/PTSA Council Spring Fever Extravaganza -

It is that time of year again....the annual Spring Fever Event is upon us and Bennie is in charge of the Bake Sale. 

Spring Fever is on Saturday, March 14, 2015 starting at 9am-3pm. Three great events one low price. This year there will be a Craft and Vendor show, Silent Auction, Sports Memorabilia, USED BOOK SALE by Friends of the Allen Park Public Schools Media Centers and MOM to MOM sale. 

50/50 Raffle, Concessions and Bake Sale! See flyer below for all the information.



Due to changes that Market Day has made within their company, they will no longer be providing a field service representative. We are sad to say that Kim Assenmacher will no longer be there on order pick up day. We thank her for all her help over the years and wish her the best.! This change will require our current chairperson Mrs. Shannon Eggleston to do double duty. We are extremely grateful to Mrs. Eggleston for her hard work and willingness to keep the service going. To streamline the process on pick up day we will no longer be able to accept CASH payment. We ask that you please consider prepaying for your order online at or if this is not an option for you, we will except a personal check on pick up day. Checks will still be made out to "Market Day. 

We are also asking for someone to consider helping Shannon on pick-up day for about an hour (once a month). If you co-chair with her you will receive 10% off your orders every month! If you are interested in helping, please feel free to ask Shannon any questions at next month delivery day on Wednesday, March 11 at 5pm. We are hoping to make this as easy as possible for our chairperson(s) so that we can continue to provide the service next school year.  
Thank you for all your support!
