Letter from the Principal

Dear BMC Community,   

Benning has always been home to me!  When I think of home, I think of a safe, comfortable, empowering, space where students, staff, and families can be themselves. I believe that only when you’re able to be yourself and value your individual strengths and growth areas can you contribute to a team.

With your help we will build a space that values individuality as a means to support our community as a whole. I can’t wait to work together to create a home where we can all learn and thrive together.

Devin Ray
