Purple Star School

The military plays a vital role in our community and is why Benton Middle School is especially proud to be among the first schools in Louisiana to receive state designation as a Purple Star School.  Legislation was passed over the summer to give schools throughout the state the opportunity to meet a set of criteria to be deemed Purple Star Schools, signifying they meet a high standard when it comes to providing support and various services to military children and their families.  The Bossier Chamber of Commerce also designated Benton Middle School as a Military Community Champion.  The school will be recognized on January 19, 2023 at the Bossier Parish School Board meeting and on April 19, 2023 before the Board of Elementary and Secondary Education in Baton Rouge.Purple Star Presentation
