Plastic Caps = South Grove Benches!

From Mrs. Reid . . .

"South Grove's student council collected plastic caps, and, thanks to the wonderful South Grove families, we collected over 500 pounds! The student council and other students sorted, cleaned, weighed and bagged all 500 pounds of caps. The caps were taken to Green Tree Plastics in Evansville, IN, where we picked up our two orange and black benches made from plastic caps! Thanks to everyone that collected caps so that our students can enjoy the benches for years to come!"

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/Communications 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!
