The Beacon School offers an inquiry-based college preparatory program with technology and arts infused throughout the curriculum. Beacon emphasizes a rigorous well-rounded liberal arts education based on the principle of shared exploration and problem-solving. In assessments for graduation, students present performance-based projects to panels of teachers. Beacon offers extensive opportunities to participate in clubs, sports, community service and international travel.
As we prepare to move to the new site, the library would like to retrieve all ibrary materials that are overdue, outstanding, and somewhere other than the ibrary. Library Amnesty has been declared. Fines will not be levied, uestions will not be asked, and judgments will not be made. All materials ust be returned by June 9th! We are grateful for your support.
Seniors are reminded that they will not receive caps and gowns if their book records have not been cleared.
This week after Memorial Day marks the final production for Beacon in our beloved Black Box Theater.
And what does Lally pick? The Scottish Play (it's so evil, you're not supposed to say the name). So our take on it is "MacB", a streamlined, steam punked version of Shakespeare's darkest tragedy. Sex, violence, swash buckling: "Legally Blonde" it's not.
Tickets on sale lunchtimes in the Beacon lobby: $10 adults, $5 students, Faculty and staff free.
FIVE performances only: Thursday May 28 at 4PM,
Friday and Saturday at 4 and 7:30.
Don't miss two rising stars: Henry Bock as MacB, and Raechel Mizrahi as his doomed queen. Seriously.
Thursday, May 28th, Project A.B.L.E. will hold its End Of Year Blow-out Sale in the lobby. Books, jewelry, and African crafts will be sold throughout the day. Everything must go! Proceeds will benefit our library in Tanzania and our school in Kenya.
Thank you for your support.

The Big Sib program is designed to help build and strengthen the Beacon community. The job of a Big Sib is to help ninth graders transition into Beacon students and to provide a familiar face for their "Little Sibs". It is a selective program open to rising seniors (class of 2016).
Big Sibs work in groups of three to mentor a freshman advisory. The role of the Big Sib is to give advice and guidance on everything from planning and organizing the academic load at Beacon to navigating changing social lives. They will earn credit for the program.
There are three obligations throughout the week for which Big Sibs earn elective credit (1/2 credit per semester):
1) Big Sibs will be expected to attend their assigned freshman advisory EVERY Friday (as well as their own advisory). During advisory they will help support their cooperating advisors with Health and Wellness lessons and other advisory programs. Please note: if there are any changes to the schedule next year, the logistics of the program will be modified to accommodate these changes.
2) Big Sibs will be meet with their cooperating advisors once a week to collaborate on the upcoming lessons and activities.
3) Big Sibs must remain available for Peer Tutoring once a week on an as-needed basis.
If you are interested in applying to be a Big Sib, please complete the attached application and place it in the folder in the College Office Mailbox in the main office (room 132). The application is due by June 1st, 2015 at 3:00 pm.
