October 7 - 11

Bacon Bears,

Wellness Week 
Each year the Millville School District celebrates Wellness Week. It incorporates Respect Week, Violence Awareness Week and Red Ribbon Week.

Wellness Week is a time to really stress to our students the importance of a drug-free, non-violent lifestyle that is full of healthy choices for our mind, body, spirit and world!

We will be celebrating with a “rainbow theme”. Each day of wellness week will be a special color day. Don’t be left out! Keep your eyes & ears open so you’ll know the color of the day!!!

Teachers - Please show this video on Monday morning: 

This year buttons and bracelets will be given to all students grades K through 5.

Each day that your child is wearing their button they will be entered into a class drawing for a couple special gifts!  In addition one homeroom (K-2) and (3-5) will be awarded a pizza party for those homerooms that had the most participation in wearing the appropriate color for the day.

Bacon Wins a bronze... here is the Press Release: 
To earn the National Recognition Award, the schools improved their nutrition services and physical activity programs to meet or exceed stringent standards set by the Alliance for a Healthier Generation’s Healthy Schools Program. The Healthy Schools Program provides professional development to schools such as onsite and virtual training with school health experts, access to a customer support center, science-based resources, and success stories--at no cost--to more than 18,000 schools nationwide to help them reverse the childhood obesity epidemic. Schools are eligible for Bronze, Silver, or Gold National Recognition Awards based on their level of achievement. The Cumberland County schools were among 267 schools from around the country honored at the Healthy Schools Program Forum at the Clinton Presidential Center in Little Rock, Ark. 

Students at RM Bacon Elementary are showing off their healthier lunches as a result of school efforts to promote healthy options in the cafeteria and to encourage parents to only send in smart choices for classroom parties. Through daily physical activity breaks, recess, before school intramurals for students and afterschool fitness options for staff, this community feels like they are on track to become a school where students, staff, and families can thrive. School staff credit the Healthy Schools Program Framework and staff in helping the school set and meet realistic goals.
