Our Students at FFA National Convention
From Mr. Bullock. . .
"On October 30, 31 and November 1, FFA members attended the National FFA Convention. Over 65,000 students were in attendance from all 50 states and Puerto Rico. Wednesday consisted of three of our high school FFA members and one graduate competing at the National Level in the Agriscience Fair. These four individuals won at the state level in their respective category and were selected from a pool of state winners nationwide. Only 12 are selected to compete in each category. Trent and Collin Eckstein received gold (a first for Beech Grove!) and Hannah Roe and Lillian Ferguson received silver. I am very proud of these four students for their commitment and endless hours beyond class time working on their projects.
On Wednesday evening of the Convention, the top six sellers from the Fall mum sale attended the Old Dominion concert. Thursday and Friday consisted of sessions, career and trade show and participating in the interactive Blue Room where members had the opportunity to talk with industry professionals and learn more about career offerings in the Ag industry."

From Mrs. Johnson . . .
They have been working so hard this semester with reading fluently and being confident.
Yesterday, they voted 'yes' to reading a play, "The Sun and the Wind."
They did such a GREAT job and I just had to take a photo to share!"

COMMUNITY EVENTS AND PROGRAMS
Family Night at South Grove Intermediate School
Join the Beech Grove CDFC for Family Night at South Grove Intermediate School for Little Caesars pizza and fun activities. While your kiddos are enjoying the activities and game time, take advantage of our presentation on Youth Substance Misuse and Overdose Prevention (YSMOP). Far too often, we hear of youth who have been curious and experimented with alcohol, tobacco, or other drugs that have led them down the wrong path. Parents who are well educated on youth substance misuse are better informed on how to talk with their children about not getting involved in drugs.
If you haven't attended one of the YSMOP events this year, I encourage you to attend. CDFC partners and presenters, Health Ed Pros does a fabulous job at educating participants about SAMHSA's "Talk. They Hear You." program, and Community Health Network does a fabulous job at educating participants on overdose prevention and Naloxone training (free Naloxone kits are available to participants).
Family Night will take place at South Grove Intermediate School, 851 S 9th Avenue, Beech Grove, IN 46107, Wednesday, November 20th, from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Event funded by Drug Free Marion County. RSVP appreciated at firstname.lastname@example.org.
