All Things Beech Grove High School
Spring Break Is Here
Over the past week, Officer Parker has spoken with the students at BGHS about being safe and smart over their Spring Break and in their travels. We wish to extend the same well wishes for all members of the extended Beech Grove community in their Spring Break endeavors.
Art Students Visit Indianapolis Museum of Art
The museum contained interactive pieces in which the viewer becomes the art. The students left the museum feeling as though they themselves were the artist. The students hope to return again in order to broaden their horizons more to the world of art. A big thank you to Ms. Tingle for allowing an enlightening experience and to Mrs. Higgins and Mr. Adamson for accompanying the students on their trip.

Winter Athletes Recognized
Science Students Participate in the Central Indiana Regional Science Fair
Three Beech Grove High School students competed at the Central Indiana Regional Science Fair at Marion College recently. The three students have been working since this summer with Dr. Clark Gedney, Purdue University professor, on their projects. The three students who competed were Olivia Malone, Brent Strahla and Shelby Wright. Each chose projects that they researched at the Purdue labs.
Their topics are as follows:
- Decreasing the Development of Carcinogenic Cells in Brain Cancer (Glioblastoma)-Olivia Malone
- Harnessing Energy from Methane Gas- Brent Strahla
- Pausing the Production of Leukemia with Bee Venom- Shelby Wright
While none of them placed, BGHS Science Department Chair Kevin Banks was proud of what they were able to accomplish. All three are still working on their projects and will be presenting their findings later towards the end of the semester
Senior Basketball Player Tommy Pich Honored
The Beech Grove High School Athletic Department is pleased to announce that senior athlete Tommy Pich has been named a Kiwanis Club of Indianapolis Academic All Star.
This is a great honor, as only 5 athletes in all of Marion County are chosen for this award.
The criteria for the award is based on a combination of athletics, academics, and service.
Tommy will receive his award next Friday, March 27th at the Kiwanis Club State Finals Luncheon. Along with receiving a plaque next week, he will be awarded a $1000 scholarship to his school of choice.
Congratulations to Tommy and his family; he has been a wonderful representative of our school, our community and our programs during his time at BGHS!
Congratulations are also in order for Tommy as he was selected as Student of the Month at Beech Grove High School.

The ENL Class Challenges YOU!
Beech Grove High School’s ENL class has representation from six different countries counting the USA. Can any other class make that boast? Please let us know if you can match or beat this much international flavor!
Saul Toxqui (Mexico) Baptiste Leclerc (France) Luca Stroppiana (Brazil)
Antonio Garcia (Mexico) Mr. Butch Mozingo (USA)
Jissel Gomez (Honduras) Cristiana Candenado (Mexico and Canada)*
Dalia Diaz (Mexico) Isabella Candenado (Mexico and Canada)*
This class is designed to help these students understand, speak and write better English. Much work is done in this class along with much laughter; it is great fun for both teacher and students.
*We cheated a bit on this one as these two sisters lived 4 years in Montreal, Canada after leaving Mexico.
