Keys to Character Unlock the Future!
We had an amazing week at RM Bacon! It was extremely busy, but we hope that every enjoyed the Halloween Parade, Healthy Parties, and the Frolic! This year we really tried to maintain our healthy school philosophy with a holiday that is known for candy, candy and lots of candy. Teachers and students didn't miss a beat with the healthy parties, and in some cases, enjoyed it more. Students were definitely calmer since they were not ingesting so much sugar!

This week is a shortened week due to the annual NJEA Convention. School will be closed on Thursday and Friday.
On November 4, 2015 RM Bacon will be participating in their annual run. This year, however, things will be a little different, colorful, and messy! The cost of the run is $2.00.
What is a “color run”? According to the website, “The Color Run, also known as the Happiest 5K on the Planet, is a unique paint race that celebrates healthiness, happiness and individuality. Now the single largest event series in the world, The Color Run has exploded since our debut event. We have more than tripled our growth, hosting more than 300 events in 50+ countries in 2014.”
The RM Bacon Color Run is an un-timed race in which teachers and students, or “Color Runners”, are doused from head to toe in different colors at each lap. With only two rules, the idea is easy to follow:
1. Wear white at the starting line
2. Finish plastered in color!
