Hello Bennett Families!


On behalf of our PTO, I would like to extend a warm WELCOME! to our new Bennett families and a BIG Welcome Back! to our returning Bears!


Bennett Elementary is a huge community of involved and caring staff, teachers and parents. The first step to feeling connected to our school is getting involved! Whether you have 1 hour a year or 3 hours a week, there is an opportunity for you to help support our students and staff. Volunteering is a great way to get to know teachers, staff and fellow Bennett parents. Make sure to visit our Volunteer table at Blast Off to find out more about all of the opportunities available and see where YOU want to plug in! 


Our Bennett PTO (Parent Teacher Organization) helps support our Bennett staff, students and parents through fundraising, fellowship, scholarships and fun events that benefit our school and enhance learning. The Bennett PTO will host one main fundraiser this school year, along with restaurant spirit nights, and other events like a Halloween Glow Dance, BINGO, a Variety Show and this year we are hosting a VERY special 20th Anniversary Carnival! In addition, our PTO also supports and honors our teaching staff once a month with a breakfast, lunch or special treat from our Teacher Appreciation Committee.


Attached, you will find a schedule of all of the PTO sponsored events. We are so appreciative of all our parents who volunteer invaluable hours of their time to make Bennett Elementary, “The Very Best School in McKinney”. We look forward to a great 2022-23 school year!
