Hickey's Headlines

A couple of reminders:

  • Wednesday, February 3 we will have a visit for the day at Beacon from Dr. David Krasner, Dean of the Arts at Dean College. This is to begin to formulate an articulation agreement between Beacon and Dean.
  • Thursday, February 4 is the Winter Music Concert at 7:00pm in the Beacon Theatre Workshop. Performing will be "The Beacon Belters", Beacon's Jazz Quartet and "Founder's Falsettos".
  • Friday 56 Visual and Theatre students will be visiting the Lippitt House in Providence. An email was sent out with the list of students involved and details.

Have a great week!


Murphy's Memo

Tuesday will follow a Monday schedule.

I will be floating around this week following several 10th graders checking on their behaviors in class and school habits. So if you see me come into class and take a seat I am not conducting a teacher eval just a student observation.



  • Thanks again for taking time to complete the IDEA survey last week. It is still open for responses if you haven't had the opportunity yet.
  • I hope that you are all seeing what I'm seeing during IDEA-- the wandering is getting so much better! Thanks to everyone for upholding consistent expectations. It's not perfect yet, but we are definitely still working on it.
  • Remember to send me an email with the names of missing students in addition to noting them as a "skip" in Power School. Please do not call Jarvis.
  • If a student has a MISSING IDEA block, you can send him/her to Robin--with a pass.
  • If a student simply wants to switch one IDEA block for another, do not let the student leave. He/She should email Robin.
