Cheeseball Pick Up

For community members who annually look forward to the delicious cheeseballs offered by the Pi Iota Xi, Eta Lambda Chapter, please note the following change for the pick up location this year (due to the cafeteria renovation at the high school):


Annual cheeseball sale: $7.00 (available with or without nuts)

Pick up at Hornet Park Elementary Oct 22 & Oct 23rd


Pi Iota Xi contributes the majority of their funds to BGCS art, music, and literature programs. In addition, the group regularly supports the Band and Choral Departments at the high school, along with the art and music departments at all Beech Grove schools.


Thanks, Pi Iota Xi!

What's Up with the High School Cafe?


The renovation of the BGHS cafeteria is being funded by the Beech Grove Food Service Department, managed by Chartwells. Work is taking place over Fall Break and is scheduled to be complete when students return on October 26. A few photos of the renovation are pictured below, along with an artist's rendering of the completed space.

Send us your hornet highlights!

We know there are many, many positive stories about Beech Grove City Schools involving our students, teachers, staff, and programs that we don't always hear. If you have a positive story to share, please send the details to Melody Stevens, Community Relations Director, at mstevens@bgcs.k12.in.us. We also encourage you to send stories that include personal achievements of your child such as: attaining the rank of Eagle Scout, performing in a community play, earning Girl Scout badges, serving as a volunteer in a non-profit organization, etc., etc. You might just see your story in a future edition of the "Hornet Blast" or in one of our local south side newspapers. We want to celebrate our Hornets!
