Benway's Haunted House 2015

Boo! On Friday, October 30th, Benway School’s All-Purpose Room became haunted yet again! For the second straight year, Benway volunteers created and acted in a haunted house for the school’s entertainment. As part of the Halloween festivities, both students and staff walked through the Benway “Fun House” filled with clowns, spiderwebs, zombies, and plenty of screams. A special thank you goes out to all the students and staff whose great efforts made this year’s haunted house a “SPOOK-TACULAR” success.

Benway's KO to Cancer

This October, Benway is jumping in the ring to help in the fight against breast cancer. During this month-long fundraising bout, Benway’s KO to Cancer, students will put their “gloves on,” during a series of school-wide events. All the money raised will be donated to foundations who conduct breast cancer research.

First, the entire school “Put on their pink,” made donations, and did laps around our campus during our Breast Cancer walk-a-thon. Next, they made donations for a chance to participate in a pass, punt, and kick competition with the opportunity to earn a pizza party for their homeroom. Benway is proud of the money raised and the enthusiasm demonstrated by our students and staff for such a worthy cause. This fundraiser was a real KNOCKOUT!
