Superintendent Blog Post - June 25, 2019 

Thank You!

During the last week of school you will probably not catch me at my most reflective but I wanted to take a moment to reflect and say a huge thank you to the Beacon community for the past two years.  I was randomly looking at some pictures a few nights ago of our move to Beacon and had those thoughts that a lot of us have when looking at old pictures: the last two years went by so fast, the last two years also went by so slow, and I have a lot more gray hairs on my head now than I did then.  That all said, I just wanted to say thanks for your support of our staff, our budget process, and most importantly your children and all of the young people in the community. Beacon is a very special place and I am proud to be here and I am incredibly excited for graduation later this week, a little bit of down time this summer, and even more exciting plans for the district for next year and beyond.  

Have a great summer!

Where are our amazing Seniors going next year?

Do you ever find yourself slowing down at the BCSD sign on Verplank this time of year to see where every senior is going next year?  I sure do.  

Here is the list of where every amazing Senior is going next year.  Roughly 85% of our Seniors go on to post-secondary education with that group split evenly between four year colleges and two year colleges.  Our Seniors also serve our community by joining the Armed Forces and by entering the workforce. Congratulations to an amazing group!
