June 23 - 27

Mrs. Devita right before her first Dunk! 
Bacon Bears,

It's all about respect!

With only two days left in the school year, I am truly at a loss for words. As a school, we have accomplished so many things this year. We are excited for the summer to recharge and prepare for the 2014-15 school year.

The end of the year brings so many emotions. Honestly, the last few weeks have been trying. Our Discipline Referrals have increased in comparison to the other months. With that said, we know what we need to work on to improve this for next year.

I am hoping that these next two days will be special for the graduating 5th graders. I am excited to see them collect their awards on Monday at the Awards Ceremony. I speak for everyone who are excited to see them at graduation on Tuesday. We all wish them the best as they go to Lakeside!

Dr. Cook was Dunked many times! 
As a recap of last week, we our 4th graders had an excellent trip to Cape May Beach. They were so proud to have found Cape May Diamonds, shells, and other beach treasures! Our Honors students had a fun time at our first Academic Awards Celebration. The students created worlds in Minecraft, danced, played Wii, and even had bowling matches. On Thursday, the 4th graders presented their version of the 12 Dancing Princess. The kids did an amazing job (and so did the teachers - Maybe some teachers could be actors!)

We concluded the week with a Badminton Tournament and Bear Bucks Extravaganza on Friday. At the Badminton Tournament, the teachers challenged each other and there was even an Administration team. In the finals, the students took on team "Varsity." The students rallied from being down by 8 points and ended up winning in "overtime." It was a memorable experience.

In the afternoon, the PBIS committee coordinated another awesome Bear Bucks Extravaganza. Any student who earned a Bear Buck was able to throw a ball at the Dunk Tank, Launch a Water Balloon, and participated in the water bucket challenge. Kudos to the PBIS team for a phenomenal afternoon!

But we are not done yet! Here is the schedule for the week:
