Students Assist at Gleaners Food Bank
On Wednesday, December 9, four students from the high school's FCCLA club volunteered at Gleaners Food Bank. Shelby Wright, Gabriella Rosales-White, Raina Byers and Olivia Bricker worked three hours at the center sorting non-food items for the giant food bank distributor. It was a great way to do some community service and feel good about helping those less fortunate. The students were accompanied by their club sponsors Mrs. Lauren Baker and Mrs. Shelley Dean.

Middle School's "Smart Start" Breakfast
From Mrs. Keller . . .
"We had our semi-annual Smart Start Breakfast this year and had a wonderful turnout! The SmartStart Breakfast is made up of students who exemplify the positive characteristics of Beech Grove Middle School and who were nominated by Beech Grove Middle School staff. We would like to thank all of the parents, students and staff that attended the breakfast! We would especially like to send a big thank you to Mayor Buckley, Dr. Kaiser, Dr. Keeley and Mr. Bair who so graciously came to our breakfast! It was such a privilege to have them join us!
Each student received a certificate with the signature of Mr. Gearhart and the staff member who nominated him/her, a placemat with positive adjectives submitted from our staff describing the student and a T-Shirt with a hornet made up of the words Beech Grove.
We are so proud of our students!" Photos from the event are pictured below. The students honored include:
