Fifth grade students learn about the judicial system

The fifth grade students participated in a special presentation from three local lawyers, Jerel Hough from the Union County District Attorney’s office, Rex Marvel a Charlotte Public Defender, and Brooks Jaffa a Charlotte Attorney. Mr. Hough is a former Benton Heights student.

The gentlemen discussed the judicial system and students were entertained with performing a script that involved a court case with Frosty the Snowman and Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer.

Students were asked what they want to be when they get older and what it will take to make it happen. Some of the students said they wanted to be a doctor, hairdresser, and police officer with the focus on the importance of education.

The visit from the lawyers was motivating and the fifth grade students enjoyed their presentation.

BHESA Schoolwide Spelling Bee

The BHESA Schoolwide Spelling Bee was held Friday, December 5, 2014.  The Bee was comprised of 18 participants representing each 3rd – 5th Grade classroom.  All participants represented their class well and were highly composed as they spelled words. 

This year’s Bee took 16 rounds to complete with Mr. Frank Casstevens serving as our pronouncer and Mrs. Patricia Medina, Mrs. Kimberly Goodman, and Mrs. Kimberly Sutton serving as judges.  Many of our Spelling Bee participants’ families were in attendance during the event, as well as all of our 3rd – 5th grade classes.  

Our winner and runner up, both fifth grade students, were Julie Sanchez and Victor Lopez respectively.   Miss Sanchez will now represent BHESA at the Union County Public Schools Spelling Bee to be held January 28, 2015 at Central Academy of Technology and Arts. 

We are so proud of all the Spelling Bee participants!  Way to go TIGERS!
