Athletics Update

Congratulations!

Tiger Domination!
Sports Physicals for 24-25 Important Change

As we gear up for the end of the school year/beginning of fall sports, We are changing up the way we collect sports physicals. We will no longer be accepting hard copies of the physicals. Instead, athletes/families will be submitting them via the attached Google Form. Parents/athletes will fill out the form AND upload their current sports physical. This will be a more streamlined process and eliminates an unnecessary amount of paper collected each year. Please use this Beechwood Physical Link. If you have any questions, please contact brandon.slusher@beechwood.kyschools.us

Delta Dental is offering Free Mouthguards

Starting Monday, June 3rd, you can order free mouthguards using the link below while supplies last. The form will be open for two weeks, so make sure you get your orders in on time!

Seats are categorized into $300, $400, and $500 levels and can be purchased through this link: https://our.show/beechwood/seatnaming

We will follow up to ensure we have the correct name(s).
