We are all excited to be back on campus every day and seeing these bright, sweet faces here! We all know that this year will be the very best of many great years at BA. We have a few new people this year which we know will add to the terrific staff we have in making this our best group ever:

Mrs. Lisa Ables is teaching 1st grade
Mrs. Kim Manor moved to 3rd grade after the retirement of Ms. Joyce Williams.
Mrs. Minta Davis is teaching science.
Coach Ed Waldrup is teaching P.E. and coaching girls’ basketball and track.

Mrs. Donna Becker is our Kindergarten assistant and in charge of our after school daycare.
Coach Natalie Whitehead is head girls’ softball coach and assisted by former student-athlete Madilyn Manor.
Coaches Steve Carr and Matt Meeks will take over our baseball program.
We have made several improvements to our facilities that will enhance academic achievement and our sports’ teams:
We have upgraded our elementary computer lab tremendously by adding six new computers.
We are in the process of acquiring several new Smartboards for classrooms.
We have built new dugouts for our softball field.
New equipment has been added to our playground.
We now have a concrete basketball court for our elementary playground as well.
Plans have been made to repave our lower parking lot this year.
As you can see, we have committed to making Benton Academy one of the finest campuses in the MAIS. If you would care to contribute to our upgrades, please contact the office and we will assist you.
Thank you for your continued support and GO RAIDERS!
