Next week is the last official week of instruction and learning for the 2019-20 school year, and I am particularly reflective of how each of you has shown resilience, strength and dedication during these past few months.

Principal's Message

La royce
Welcome to Bennett-Kew School. As the principal, my goal is to work with the teachers, students, and staff in providing quality education, setting high expectations, and creating a caring environment for members of our school community.
The students are why we are here! They not only excel academically, but are also learning about respect, ethical values, and social skills, which we at Bennett-Kew School consider to be equally important. We strive to create an environment where students feel safe, comfortable, and respected.
The mission of Bennett-Kew is to close the achievement gap.  It is our belief that this can be accomplished by building personal relationships with our students, teachers, and school community. By learning from and understanding the cultural differences that make up our school culture we at Bennett-Kew can move forward through thoughtful planning, maintenance of effective curriculum, and creation of new programs and powerful partnerships with both parents and community members.  It is our belief that parents play a critical role in the success of our students and together we can focus on motivating students through an enjoyment and appreciation of learning.
I welcome you to find out more about our wonderful school community. Please feel free to call or email me at any time. Or just stop by; my door is always open.
Dr. LaRoyce Murphy, Principal
