August 17 - 21

Bacon Bears,

Keys to Character Unlock the Future! 

We have our new theme for the 2015-16 school year! Our staff was looking for something that talked about character and our focus on the future is always a point of emphasis.

As we start our 3rd week of August, we are still working on getting everything completed for the opening of the school. This week the custodian crew will be working on painting the stairwells, cleaning the carpeted areas, and re-tiling the basement level ceiling.

Last week, Dr. Cook and Mr. Hudson presented to the Regional Achievement Center's Summer Institute. Dr. Cook presented to teachers and administrators on the value of being "connected" through social media and how important it is to "tell your school's story." Dr. Cook told the story of RM Bacon (hope your ears were ringing) and how we have achieved so many accomplishments in the past few years!  Mr. Hudson worked in the technology lab and showed teachers and administrators the benefits of flipped learning. He showed tools such as Sofia and aspects of Google classroom to participants interested in increasing their technology use.

This week's video is a TED Education talk given by longtime educator Rita Pierson. Enjoy!
