Hornet Blast

September 15, 2016

On Friday, September 9, South Grove Intermediate School received a donation of $500 from the Beech Grove Sons of the American Legion. Mr. Steve Smith and Mr. Jon Chamness represented the organization and presented the check to South Grove staff, Mrs. Dee Dee Horen, Curriculum and Instruction Coordinator, and Mrs. Stacy Johnson, the school's PBIS (Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports) Coach. Mr. Smith is the much-loved uncle of Mrs. Horen! The generous donation will be used to fund PBIS rewards for students at South Grove.

Mr. Winton Recognized at School Board Meeting

Mr. Kevin Winton described his cross country walk, with interesting details, to School Board members, parents, students, and staff in attendance at the meeting. Mr. Tom Gearhart, BGMS principal, presented Mr. Winton with a special plaque commemorating his achievement. Mr. Winton told the story of a special rock presented to him by Mrs. Beth Prindle, School Board President, before he started his walk. He told her that he had "dipped it in the Atlantic Ocean and the Pacific Ocean and carried it with me throughout my walk." Mr. Winton and Mrs. Prindle are pictured in a photo below. BGCS Administrators are pictured in the last photo with Mr. Winton. A special cake made especially for Mr. Winton was enjoyed by all!


We're so proud of you, Mr. Winton! Welcome back to BGMS!

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!
