The season of gift giving is among us and with children, we all need to be careful with the purchases that are chosen. When it comes to toys and gifts, the excitement and desire to get your children their favorite toys may cause shoppers to forget about safety factors associated with them. Before you make these purchases, it is critical to remember to consider the safety and age range of the toys.

Image of tree made of white stars with snowflakes surrounding it on a green background and a large star radiating off the topIt is a tradition here at Ben Martin to establish a Giving Tree for those families in need. A tree will be displayed in the lobby area containing tags of items that are wished for and/or needed for students in our school.  If you are able, please consider coming to the school’s lobby to claim a tag.  Purchase the item reqested and return it to the school.  You may wrap your gift or just place it in a gift bag.  We will deliver all donated items in time for the holidays. We have been blessed with an excellent response from the community in the past and this is one of our long-standing traditions of supporting those in need in our very own community.  The Giving Tree begins November 17 and ends December 13, 2017.
