Be Safe During Spring Break!
BGCS Resource Officer addresses high school students
The week before Spring Break, School Resource Officer Mark Parker spoke to BGHS students about decision making. Officer Parker discussed several situations he has encountered as a BGPD officer where teens have not always made good decisions regarding their behavior during Spring Break, or at Prom or graduation time. Officer Parker urged the high school students to think carefully about their decisions. We want our Hornets to be safe!
A few photos of the presentation appear below. We apologize for the quality of the photos, as the lighting in our high school auditorium is poor.

The students winning gold awards will be honored at a tea luncheon on March 29th at the Hilbert Circle Theatre. The students who will be honored are Jaxon Fritch, Kristen Lamb, Michael Hittle, Cooper Fritch, and Hailey Ray.
Mrs. Pieper will receive the "Maestro" Award for sponsoring the school with the greatest number of winners.
All seven South Grove entries were winners; 5 gold winners and 2 finalists. Our finalists are Brooke Roessler and Emma McCollum.
All gold winners and finalists will have their artwork exhibited at the Indiana State Museum from April 6th through May 10th, 2015. Congratulations to Mrs. Pieper and our South Grove artists!

An Evening with an Artist - a great success!
Planned and coordinated by art teacher, Mrs. Jonee Sutton, the middle school hosted their first ever "Evening with an Artist" on March 19 with local Artist, Kellie Nowacki. She hosted a workshop with 12 students making hand-crafted leather bracelets. Students were able to cut/stain/stamp/snap and condition their very own leather hide to make an amazing finished wearable piece of art. Students participating in the "Evening with an Artist" include: Riley Judd, JayLee Clubs, Elizabeth Richardson, Donella Brown, Alexis Snead, Noah Drury, Hayleigh Ellis, Taylor Beasley, Adi Flores, Harley Taylor, Grace Salyers, and Cody Boone.
