January 27 - 31

Bacon Bears,

It's all about respect!

We are hoping for a full week of school! The weather has been challenging to say the least.

This week the 2014 Floor Hockey Intramural program starts! Our Floor Hockey program has been in existence since the 1970's and for many RM Bacon alumni is what they remember most about our school. Come out and support on Monday and Tuesday at 8:00AM.

On Friday, we will have another Bear Bucks Store. This month, the Bear challenge will be another one for the record books.

Marking period 2 ends on January 31, 2014.

The Great Kindness Challenge
The Great Kindness Challenge is a proactive and positively powerful anti-bullying tool. It is one week devoted to performing as many acts of kindness as possible in school, at home and in the community. All kids deserve to learn in a safe, supportive and dynamic environment. The Great Kindness Challenge provides a powerful tool that actively engages students, teachers, administration, families and community in creating a school culture of acceptance, tolerance, unity and respect.

During 3rd, 4th and 5th grade lunches on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday we will have A Kindness Station set up in the cafeteria. This will be a table with various art supplies set up so the students can use part of their lunch period to make a card expressing their thanks to someone special to them. Stay tuned for more details.
