October 22 - 26

Bacon Bears,

You Matter!

It was not easy being out of the building three days last week . Mrs. Harris continues to do an excellent job for the school in my absence.

I attended and presented at the Texas ASCD conference in Dallas, TX. It was a great experience all around, and as I shared the RM Bacon Elementary story, educators were impressed. I was able to tour Dealey Plaza, the grassy knoll, and the school book depository museum all in relation to the assassination of John F. Kennedy, the 35th President of the United States of America.

On Thursday, along with Mrs. Simpson (Music Teacher and Family and Community Engagement Coordinator), and Mrs. Markee (our Home and School Association President) I visited Knapp Elementary School. Knapp has become recognized throughout the country as one of the premier schools for family and community engagement. We learned about their school, and their programs. We also had the opportunity to share some of the great programs that are occurring here at RM Bacon Elementary.

Updates for this week
There will be no Resource Room classes on Monday or Tuesday. Mrs. Peterson and Ms. Ford are working on a complete re haul of their schedule. More information to follow.

This week we have Dr. Porecca visiting RM Bacon to screen students for vision (Tuesday At 9:30 AM). Contact the Nurse if you have any questions.

On Wednesday we will be having an assembly titled "More Power for You!" This looks to be a great opportunity for our students to learn about motivation.

All teachers (except BSI interventionists) will participate in Grade Level Meetings this week. We will be focusing on Generating and Testing Hypothesis application in the classrooms.
