Community Service Class Helps Local YMCA
The Beech Grove High School Community Service, under the leadership of Tara Miller has been working locally with the Baxter YMCA. The students have been volunteered at the Baxter YMCA two days last week where students helped to clean the indoor play areas and then mulched the outdoor playground. The YMCA coordinators and custodial staff were extremely thankful because so much of their help comes from volunteers and without volunteers they said "we would have a hard time keeping up with all the demands otherwise." The class plans to return next week to continue helping the YMCA prep for the their upcoming summer programs that they offer.
Any students wanting to get involved can check out the Baxter YMCA volunteer page or contact Sarah Rish for more information on how to get involved and log those community service hours.
Thank you community service students for your hard work and commitment in becoming "service leaders".

Cadet Teachers Get First Hand Experience
Seniors in the cadet teaching program benefit greatly from the mentoring skills of the professional staffs of the Beech Grove School System. Students get to learn teaching skills and tasks in a hands-on environment. They also get to know many young students through the process of guiding and teaching. Teachers often comment just how helpful the cadets are to their students. Friendships are developed among many of the cadets and their mentor teachers.
Some teacher comments are:
“It’s so nice having a cadet teacher not only for helping me but helping the students. They are an extra set of hands. The students really love having a high school student work with them.”
“With a cadet teacher, my students have more opportunities to have some one-on-one time with a positive adult.”
“I like having a cadet teacher in my classroom because it gives an extra hand that is very beneficial to me and my students. The students enjoy the ‘big kids’ and think it is cool.”
“I like the relationship that the cadets with my students.”
