Weekly Updates and Happenings at BHES (Vol 1, Issue 22)

Beverly Hills Mission Statement: “Empowering every learner, inspiring successful futures, building a positive community.”

Week #15! December is filled with Holiday cheer and the joy it brings near!

Susan H. Wilson Learning Garden at BHES Dedication Ceremony will be on Friday, 1/29/16 at 2pm

The plan is for the Wilson family (Hubby Keith and children, possibly grandchildren) to come to BHES and we will have a ceremony at the garden (in the middle) where we talk about the purpose of the garden, the legacy of Susan, and the future of the garden harvest for the community. Anyone can attend. I prefer the fit the whole school in the garden and on the outside areas of the garden near the road and the other direction near the office. I think the whole school can fit. We will also have the microphone and speaker system set up as well. Please email Mrs. Steele if you have any questions or suggestions on how to make sure the ceremony goes well.

Welcome Emily Neldon, NEW SPEECH THERAPIST!
