Superintendent Update September 13, 2022

I hope everyone is having a great week!

Announcing a call for volunteers for Leave the Lights On at Beacon High School!

From BHS principal Mr. Dwier:

We are looking to open the high school up to our students on Friday nights, from 6:00 PM to 10:00 PM, in order to provide a safe space for students to socialize with one another and have fun.

We are looking for community volunteers to lead programs that our high school students can participate in! These programs can include anything and everything from sports and dance to gaming, photography, arts, music, etc.

If you are passionate about working with young people and would like to join us on Friday nights, please complete this survey by Friday, September 23rd:

We are planning to begin later this fall, and to offer the program on one Friday night per month, to start.

Please contact Corey Dwyer, BHS Principal, at with any questions. If you are a local business and would like to make a donation of food or supplies, please let us know!
