Benchmark Bootcamp

I was able to join in on some of the training this Friday at the 6th grade Benchmark Bootcamp. This was our opening exercise wherein listening skills played a key part. Besides that, it was fun and helped our students have a positive attitude toward the upcoming Benchmark exams.
