Beacon School athletes practiced for weeks in preparation for the Area 8 Special Olympics Track Meet held on April 29. The weather was cold but the competition was hot as our athletes brought many ribbons back to school! Thank you to Nelsonville-York High School for hosting this year’s meet and to the many volunteers that made the event a success!

Beacon School is also in competition with other area schools, trying to be the FIRST to fitness-walk 1,444 miles—the distance of the Buckeye Trail around Ohio. We are well on our way to our goal! CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL!
