Ms. Benita Grant


    Dear Fickett Family,


    It is with great honor and excitement that I introduce myself as the new principal of Fickett Elementary School. My passion for education and supporting the success of all students has been shaped over the past 18 years as a Teacher, Learning Technology Specialist, and Assistant Principal.  In each of my roles, I have sought to ensure the success of each individual student by providing the best instructional practices and exposure to create lifelong learners. 

    I assure you that I am committed to providing the same opportunities to your children. I am committed to working tirelessly to help create an environment that enables students to develop character, cultivate passion, insight curiosity and create relevant experiences that will allow our students to have life-long academic success.

    It will be my intentional commitment to make sure this is possible for all the students we serve.

    Additionally, I have a personal interest in the Fickett Community, and I will continue to help move forward the very community we live in. My family and I live in this community and it is with sincere urgency that I work collaboratively with you and the community to ensure that our students are prepared to be leaders and thinkers. Which will lead to making our community a better place.

    In closing, I am humbled to serve you and our community in this capacity. I welcome your support and suggestions so that together we can continue to provide the best experiences our children.

    Please feel free to stop by, my door is always open to you.

    Warmest Regards,

    Benita Grant
