Benton Elementary received the Fall 2015 Red Carpet Award for Excellent Customer Service, presented by the Parent and Community Support Office. Benton received the award for committing to great customer service beyond the front office. They believe it is shown through relationships with parents and staff, how the custodians keep the school clean, and how all students are treated with respect.
Benton was presented a check for $1,000 from Midwest Single Source, who partners with the district on the award. Midwest Single Source has given schools $19,000 over their eleven-year sponsorship of the Red Carpet Award.
