The poetry slam is coming, and we need judges!
Written by Sarah Fink on Wednesday, May 04, 2016 13:55:44 EST:

We are looking for student judges, who love and respect poetry; it is a supportive, collaborative and fun experience (NOT "judge-y"), and anyone can join. You will be working in teams with teachers and other students, to decide which poets move forward to the next round, and who will be the slam champion!

If you are interesting in performing, there is still time to sign up! You must email Ms. Fink by THIS FRIDAY, May 6th, at sfink@beaconschool.org.


Beacon Boys Tennis Wins the NEMA 2016 Tournament
Written by Bayard Faithful on Tuesday, May 03, 2016 11:42:49 EST:

Over the weekend of April 30-May 1, the boys Beacon tennis team competed in the NEMA (New England/Mid-Atlantic) tennis tournament in Maryland bringing together many of the best boys high school teams on the East coast. In a field of sixteen teams, the Beacon boys prevailed with 32 Ĺ points over Sidwell Friends (26 points), Haverford (21 Ĺ points) and Potomac (21 points), among others.

Among the many highlights, freshman Ethan Leon defeated James Betts of Potomac to win the second singles championship and sophomore Felix Levine defeated Connor Lees of Haverford to win the third singles championship.

The most intense final of the tournament brought Beaconís sophomore Julian Szuper and freshman Marcos Lee against the Haverford #1 doubles. Szuper and Lee won the battle 8-6, with excellent net play and strong serve. Beaconís other doubles team of junior Lucas Larese and freshman Tyler Kats, with great serving and ground strokes by Larese and excellent net play by Kats, won their doubles bracket against Sidwell Friends.

Japan in March of 2018
Written by Keith Miller on Monday, May 02, 2016 10:07:59 EST:

All interested parties should attend an informational meeting on Wednesday, May 4th, 2016 at 6:30PM in the Beacon Cafeteria.

As our world becomes increasingly interconnected, it is critical for our students to become more culturally aware, explore new ideas and grow their potential. I believe that when students are able to see their studies come to life outside of the classroom, they develop a new and valuable perspective of the world.

I will be hosting an informational meeting on Wednesday, May 4th, 2016 at 6:30PM in the Cafeteria to provide more details about this opportunity and answer any questions you may have. There is limited space on the trip and enrollment will be open at the end of the meeting.

Please send me an email by the day of the meeting to ensure I can accommodate everyone in our meeting space.

I hope that you and your child will be able to attend the upcoming meeting to learn more about this incredible experience!
