Student Interview Proves Rewarding

5th grade students, Jamie Worrell and Lily Ankomah, interviewed Mrs. Frankie McLean this week about the history of Bethel-Hanberry and Blythewood. They heard so many interesting stories and learned so much about life in the past such as riding to school on a horse-drawn cart! Mrs. McLean told a personal account of when she taught at BHE. Her kindergarten class​room​ was located in room 102, and then she later had a job at our school, when she worked in the book room ​o​n the 2nd grade hallway!

Mrs. McLean encourages all students to visit the Historical Society located on McNulty Street​. 
You may access more Blythewood history via the website here​ which contains many photos and information about BHE​ and the town of Blythewood.

BHE Turnaround Student Award Recipient

BHE is proud to announce that Jamie Worrell, 5th grader, has been named BHE's Turnaround Student for 2017-2018.  Jamie became a BHE student during his 1st grade year.  He not only had to get acclimated to a new school, but also a new language because he spoke German.  During his five years at BHE he has flourished.  Jamie is a hardworking student with lots of drive and a glowing personality and this recognition is well deserved!
