Activities Sponsored by the BPA:
Carpooling: The BPA established a carpool website to help those Benjamin parents who are interested.
Hospitality Committee: The Hospitality Committee helps to ensure that Benjamin student and parent functions are warm and welcoming. The Hospitality Committee organizes over 45 annual events, coordinating volunteers and supplies.
New Family Ambassador: The New Parent Ambassador program offers the opportunity for all new families to feel welcomed and part of the Benjamin community. To help foster this sense of community, we have incorporated a "Buc Buddy" program in the Lower School and Student Ambassadors in the Middle and Upper School whereby new students are matched up with existing students within the same grade for help and guidance. The W.O.W. (PK3), Pre-K and K students receive this same opportunity through a welcoming committee. In conjunction with our Admission Office, we host informative and fun gatherings for all new members of our school community to attend.
Grade Liaisons: The purpose of Grade Liaisons is to foster an open line of communication between the Benjamin parents and the Division Heads.
Sports Liaison: The Sports Liaison meets regularly and works closely with the Athletic Department. The Sports Liaison's primary role is to enhance communication and organization between parents, athletes, coaches and administration.
Volunteer Coordinator: The volunteer coordinator is responsible for orchestrating the volunteer fair, as well as updating and maintaining the accuracy of the volunteer forms and directing all volunteers to the appropriate chairs or organizations.
