BGMS Staff Celebrate "College Go Week"

What is College Go Week?

There are three areas of College Go Week that are designed to help students think about college planning based on three key areas: Career, College and Cost. In addition, the week emphasizes helping students get ready for college, finding the right school and exploring college options through research and campus visits, and instructions on how students can prepare and apply to colleges they may be interested in attending.


To help celebrate the week and inspire our students, middle and high school staff wore a t-shirt highlighting the college where they attended. A few of the middle school staff are pictured below in their college t-shirts.

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!
