June 8 - 12

Bacon Bears,

Focusing on Today, Tomorrow, and the Future!

This past week was an amazing experience for our Fine and Performing Arts Department at RM Bacon. On Monday, students were able to showcase their artistic talents to their parents and friends during the Art Show. Each student had their artwork displayed along with their classmates. The art work will remain up for the next few weeks, so if you were unable to attend be sure to stop by the school. A BIG thanks to Ms. Peck for all that she did to make the Art Show a memorable experience!

Later on Monday evening, the Band and Chorus students treated the packed Bacon Gym to a memorable concert. There were over 30 Band students who displayed the results of a year of hard work. The students played advanced songs and wowed the crowd with their final piece. After the Band completed their performance, the Chorus students entered the Bacon Gym. Similar to the Band, the students displayed their talent and hard work for all to see. They hit the high notes, low notes and displayed perfect harmony! A BIG thanks to Ms. Clearwater for all that she did to make the Spring Concert an epic showcase of talent!

Disney representatives with the big announcement
On Wednesday, Club 21 presented the Lion King Experience. After months of practice, and several cast changes, the kids put on an amazing show. Check out the article about them in the Daily Journal. After the students finished their performance, as part of their hard work and participation in the documentary being filmed for Nightline, the students were given a magical treat from Disney. The representatives from Disney are paying for the Club 21 students to attend the Lion King in Philadelphia and meet the cast on Wednesday, June 10! In addition, Mrs. Mackall was awarded her pick of any Disney play for next year's theater program free of charge. These two gifts from Disney were so generous, and were very appreciated.

We have another action packed week here at RM Bacon. On Tuesday, and Wednesday the Bacon Speaks program will be hosting Spelling Bee practices at RM Bacon. The practices will be held in the Bacon Gym from 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM. The Spelling Bee and final speeches from the Bacon Speaks crew will be held on Thursday, June 11 at 7:00 PM. This event is open to the public.

In addition, our 5th grade Safety Patrol will be going on their trip to Washington DC on Monday and Tuesday! On Wednesday, the 5th graders will be visiting Lakeside Middle School for their Orientation!
