Welcome to Bennington Grade School,

It is an honor to serve the Bennington community as the BGS principal. The 2023-24 school year is sure to be one filled with growth, learning, and lots of fun. I look forward to partnering with you to ensure the success of all our students and to make BGS the best it can be.

Our goal is to be the best place to learn and grow by facing challenges, finding solutions, creating a place where everyone belongs, and fostering pride within ourselves and our community. At BGS, we operate under the following core values.

  • We believe that everyone is a valued member of our community who deserves respect in the form of kindness, understanding, and encouragement.

  • We believe that by creating a safe environment, students and staff can act with positive Bulldog character.

  • We believe that teaching the skills to navigate through adversity and challenges will help foster a growth mindset.

  • We believe that everyone has a voice and part to play when finding and implementing solutions to barriers and challenges along the way.

  • We believe that all children are capable, and it is our responsibility to help them reach their full potential.

You can learn more about our school and the district while navigating through this website, and I encourage you to reach out with questions, ideas, or concerns by calling the BGS office or emailing me directly at any time.

Thank you for you continued support, and I would be honored to collaborate with you to make BGS and Twin Valley Schools the best place to learn, work and grow.

Yours in Education,

Tricia McVay, BGS Principal
