We are approaching the end of February. Luckily this year we have an extra day :)
Our blog continues to grow. Each day I am amazed at the statistics that reveal our visitors. Thank you to everyone who is a part of our RM Bacon Weekly!
Mrs. Devita at the Math-A-Thon Kick Off
Even though we had the shortened week, our students and teachers worked on African American History, President's Day, and Read Across America activities. The learning continues to flourish here at this very special school!
This week we will be hosting Dr. Patel on Wednesday in the Nurses office. We will be having our kickoff to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Pasta for Pennies Assembly on Thursday. On Friday, we will be having a Read Across America event that will go down in history. Prior to our Read Across America Assembly, grades 3 - 5 will be going to watch The Lorax at the Regal Theater. Students will be responsible for the 8.50 for the ticket. We created a Read Across America blog to show the curriculum integration that connects this important event with our learning.

February has turned into a very busy month. We have had an assembly each week. Lots of fun activities, pictures, and most importantly LEARNING.
Since February 6 the RM Bacon Weekly has had visitors from 5 different states (California, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Georgia, and Delaware) and one from Toscana, Italy. We are international!
One of our friends in Alabama, Assistant Principal Paiml was my 100th follower on Twitter and she won a Bacon Bear T-Shirt. She took a picture and sent it to us.
We had a very heart-filled week last week. We had about 90% of our school wear red/pink to support the American Heart Society on Tuesday.
On Friday, we raised over 2,500 dollars for the America Heart Association!
We had about 100 people attend the Pizza Bingo night. The PTA did a fantastic job of setting up the evening, and supplying everything to make people feel comfortable
I was observing Mrs. Stahlberger, our librarian, on Friday and I loved how she had the students editing on the ELMO projector for the class. I had to take a picture!
February 21 - 24
This week will be celebrating the Academic Achievements of our 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students at our Honor Roll Assembly on Tuesday. Our kindergartners will be going on their weekly swimming lesson on Thursday! On Friday, the students will be able to exchange their BEAR Bucks at out BEAR Bucks Store.
Remember, if you are interested in getting the new Bacon Bear T-Shirt, you have to get your orders in by the end of the month.

Monday - No School - Presidents Day
Another amazing week on tap for RM Bacon Elementary. Before I go into this week, I have to mention last week. We started the week off with an assembly to kick off our Jump Rope for Heart. Unfortunately, I couldn't be there because I was home with a sick daughter. Mrs. Muhlbaier did a great job of coordinating the event.
On Tuesday afternoon I attended our monthly administrative meeting. Dr. Moore, our new Assistant Superintendent, charged everyone in attendance with this message, "We need to have a sense of urgency to provide world class education to every student!" Dr. Moore, we are on board at RM Bacon!
The PTA meeting on Tuesday was very productive. We reviewed the upcoming Pizza Bingo (February 16 @ 6:00 PM). Also, the PTA has been selling lollipops everyday at lunch. Please support our wonderful PTA.
This week is all about LOVE. We have a wear Red day on Tuesday for Valentine's Day. Our annual Jump Rope For Heart on Friday!
I will be out of the building on Thursday for training, but I WILL be back for the Pizza Bingo. Mrs. Harris will be filling in for me during my absence.
Bacon in the News
"Thought everyone would appreciate this. Lexi Bruno and Brittany Harden are former Bacon school girls. Amazing how being able to put yourself into the position to compete brings out the BEARS in these kids. It was the foundation they got here that has helped them become leaders in such a successful program." Submitted by Mr. Drewnowski

We had an amazing week at Rm Bacon! On Thursday we had close to 150 families attend the SOUPER Bowl. This activity was sponsored by the PTA and supported by many teachers. Everyone enjoyed the soups (we had tomato, chicken noodle, and loaded baked potato). After the soups, we separated the families into smaller groups (K-1, 2-3, 4-5). The groups played games in the gym, board games in the Library, and a SMART Board game created by Mr. Hudson.
In addition, we had a very successful visit from Mrs. Venuti for a Dental Hygiene Assembly. Thank you to Nurse Pruett for coordinating the event.
This week we have a Jump Rope For Heart Assembly on Monday. The PTA will be selling Lollipops in preparation for Valentine's Day.
