Commencement

 

CAP, GOWN, AND ANNOUNCEMENT ORDERING

On October 19, 2018, there will be a senior assembly in the new gym.  Seniors are expected to check in with their advisement teachers first and then will be escorted to the assembly.   At the assembly, School Traditions will handout all cap, gown, and announcement information to the seniors.  They will return to Benson on October 25th and 26th during lunch to take orders.   They will be located outside of the library.   Students will be required to either pay for their cap and gown in full or place a deposit. 

Benson High School does not handle cap and gown orders.   It is all handled directly through School Traditions.  If you have any questions, please direct to them.

Wednesday, May 8, 2019 is senior "B" day finals. Seniors will follow their regular schedule throughout the day and complete any and all work in that classroom.
 

Thursday, May 9, 2018 is senior "A" day finals. Seniors will follow their regular schedule throughout the day and complete any and all work in that classroom.

Friday, May 10, 2019 is the Senior Finals makeup testing. This has to be prearranged with the teacher before that day in order for seniors to be in the building on that day.
