Back to School Information

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Welcome to a wonderful school year in Beech Grove City Schools. You've made an excellent and very important decision in the education of your child. We are so honored to have the privilege to walk alongside you in the early educational years of your child.

Our highly qualified staff are excitedly preparing for the upcoming school year. We are focused on presenting a strong curriculum through developmentally-appropriate strategies to help each and every child grow and succeed academically, socially, and emotionally. We are asking for your partnership in this, too. To that end, we are asking that each student come to school every day, on time, with requested materials, and prepared to do his/her best. Success is a team effort and every player (staff, student, and parent) is an integral part. When we work together everyone wins!

As we embark on this 14-15 school year adventure together, I am confident in the positive and productive learning and growing that will take place. Please, be an active participant along the way and never hesitate to contact your child's teacher, our office team, or myself. We look forward to seeing you on the evening of July 29th from 4:00pm to 6:00pm for our Welcome Night/Open House/Supply Drop Off Night! You will have the opportunity to meet your child's teacher, see his/her classroom, and learn important information to help make this year a success! The first day of school is Thursday, July 31st and we will be ready and thrilled to greet your child and help make the first day a memorable one!

Ride the Bus to Welcome Night

Riding a school bus for the first time can be a little overwhelming for our new students. At Hornet Park, we want your child to feel as comfortable as possible with his/her transition on the first day of school. In order to accomplish this, our transportation staff will be running buses to and from the Hornet Park Open House! Below you will find a schedule of times.

4:00pm - Begin first route and pick up families

4:30pm - Arrive at Hornet Park

4:40pm - Depart to repeat route and take home families

5:15pm - Arrive back at Hornet Park with second round of families

5:20pm - Depart to take families home.

5:50pm - Returns to Hornet Park and departs for final route home.

Please contact the Hornet Park front office with any questions or concerns.

Hug Check Point

Because your child's safety is our number one priority we want you to understand one of our basic policies. No one will be permitted to escort their child to class at any point during the school year. For the first day of school, we will have a Hug Check Point outside on the first day of school. At this point, you can give your little one a tight squeeze and send him/her into our secure building. We have ample people available to assist your child in finding his/her classroom and teacher!

Please remember that kindergartners and first graders are our area of expertise and we will take care of each one!
