Liberty-Benton Elementary School

From the Desk of the Principal


Welcome to the Liberty-Benton Elementary School page. At Liberty-Benton, we believe that all students can and will learn. Our dedicated teachers and staff are committed to achieving our building's mission statement which is:

To facilitate the maximum level of learning for every student in a respectful, caring, and safe environment.  

Literacy is a key component to this learning.  It is cornerstone for understanding and succeeding in all other areas of our curriculum.  We are committed to seeing that all of our students read proficiently.

New this year, we are excited that our students will be learning about leadership skills using The Leader in Me guide.  We believe that ALL students bring value and worth to our school, have important strengths to share, and can ALL learn how to be leaders!  Please click on the link below to read the beginning of the year letter sent home with every student.
