Written by Michael Shum on Tuesday, April 28, 2015 07:56:07 EST:

This past weekend, the 121st running of the Penn Relays, in Philadelphia, included Beacon for the first time ever. The track team sent the 4x400-meter relay of Isaac Morris, Thomas Chalothron, Jon Benitez, and Marcus Kener to compete against over 500 schools in what is the largest and oldest track & field meet in America. It was a humbling yet exciting experience, and our squad came away with a new school record to boot! Congratulations and great job!

The Teacher Talent(less) Show Is Coming Again!
Written by Sarah Fink on Monday, April 20, 2015 10:00:13 EST:

Tickets will be on sale tomorrow (Tuesday), during both lunch bands, and every day, until we sell out. We tend to sell out quickly, so get your tickets soon.

$5 gets you a ticket and a voting ballot, but you can purchase as many voting ballots as you want, to stack the decks in favor of your favorite acts.

This year, we have teachers dancing, singing, reading poetry, playing instruments, wearing crazy costumes, making funny films that (kindly) humiliate your other teachers, and other surprises.

Also, you get to see the Beacon Student Jazz Band, closing out the show, as well as your other classmates backing up your teachers!
