It's a great day to be a Bear - every single day! Learning is taking place, the students are doing great things, and our staff members are continually dedicated to being the best they can be.
And speaking of being the best...
Also this week, our district wrapped up a three-day brain-based workshop hosted by the Franklin Institute. From Bacon, four people were able to attend the sessions which began last spring. The information covered was all about learning how to focus learning and purposefully tap into the science of learning as it relates to brain development, memory, and processing. In the not-to-distant future, we hope to convey this info to the rest of the staff in order to help our teachers be more effective educators and our students be more effective learners.
One of the busiest and most-exciting events of the year is nearly upon us. Our annual Fall Frolic is on Wednesday from 6-8. This year's event promises to be another crowd pleaser. We hope to see you there.
Looking a little beyond - the week of Halloween will be busy as well. We have our monthly PBIS assembly, and our costume parade will be later in the week.
