Benjamin Turner Academy celebrates Spirit Week

Benjamin Turner Academy scholars and staff enjoyed the sports day theme for Spirit Week on Wednesday, November 15, 2023.  The array of colors and smiles was brilliant.  Earlier this week they had crazy hair and sock day and switcheroo. Later in the week they will have twin and favorite era day.
