April 18 - 22, 2016

Bacon Bears,

Mr. Coyle talking with some 3rd graders
This week, PARCC testing got underway here at Bacon.  The 5th grade tested Monday-Thursday, and the 4th grade began their testing on Friday.  A big thanks goes to Ms. Spanbauer and Mr. Hudson for their exceptional planning, organization, and support leading up to and during the test.  Also, a huge thank you to our wonderful 5th and 4th grade teachers for their help and support during this process. They helped ensure that everything went smoothly and orderly.  Our students did a great job, and the students in other grades who didn't test were cooperative and respectful during the PARCC sessions.  Great job, staff and students.

Ms. Anton's kindergarten class and Mrs. Sinone's 3rd grade class each presented the new principal, Mr. Coyle, a to-do list.  The issues ranged from how much facial hair he should have (if any) to how we as a school can keep them safe.  Mr. Coyle met with the classes and went over each item on their lists.  It was a great chance for him to share a few laughs, listen to the students as they told him what's on their minds, and answer questions on how we can make sure Bacon stays a great place of learning.

Next week, the PARCC test continues as 4th grade finishes their testing and 3rd grade begins theirs.  Good luck, students.

Also, thanks to all who participated in the Bacon Bytes Technology and Learning Conference.  A lot of networking took place as educators from around the area shared their thoughts and best practices on teaching, technology, and leadership.

There will be no Coach's Corner this week (due to PARCC and setting up for the Bacon Bytes Technology and Learning Conference), but Mr. Hudson wanted to extend his personal thanks to all the students and teachers for a successful week of PARCC testing.  Mr. Ryan is proud of the students for their hard work, and he is grateful to the staff for their support and dedication.
