May 23 - 27, 2016

Bacon Bears,

Serving our alumni
Another Alumni Night is in the books!  After postponing the event so more people could RSVP and make arrangements to attend, we can proudly say that those who came out had a wonderful time.  Great food and great company was enjoyed by all, and everyone was all smiles!  This year's focus was the legendary floor hockey program, and anyone who knows anything about Bacon history understands how much this sport is part of the fabric and culture of our school.  To all the alumni who came out - thank you for honoring us with your presence as we honored YOU, Bacon's own.  We'll see you in a few years!

4th grade reading to kindergarten
The 4th grade smoothie program wrapped up this week.  We'll see what the future holds, but while it lasted, it was a great opportunity for many students to be health-conscience.  Healthy school, healthy living, healthy choices - we are striving for greatness in all of these.   

We have less than a month of school left, but that doesn't mean we are slowing down.  Many classes are still revving along.  Learning is taking place, and student engagement hasn't dropped down a few gears simply because the weather is finally nice and June is almost upon us.  Keep it up, students and staff!  Finish strong!

The sun managed to make more of an appearance this past week, which has been a rare thing of late.  And we say...we'll take it!  If you live on the eastern seaboard or in the Mid-Atlantic region (for our out-of-area readers), you know what we mean.  It's no wonder that a certain Beatle's song was going through the minds of many this week... 

The Week Ahead

We have busy week ahead of us here at Bacon.  Final preparations are underway for the art showcase and spring concert.  Ms. Peck and Mrs. Rohaly have been working hard to bring you quality presentations from our Bacon Bears, and we applaud their dedication to excellence.  Remember, this year's events will take place on Monday, 5/23, at the Levoy Theatre here in Millville.  The art show will begin at 6, and the concert will be underway at 7.  Please come support the students as they take advantage of this unique opportunity to perform and showcase their talents at a local world-class facility.  We hope to see you there.

Mrs. Sinone's 3rd- grade class will be taking a field trip to the Phenom Factory on Tuesday, 5/24. Students will be able to participate in a number of fun and fitness-themed activities. 

On Wednesday, 5/25, the 4th graders will take their NJ ASK Science test.  Good luck, students.

Fun Day and Olympic Day will be on Friday, 5/27.  The day will kick off with the time-honored Olympic Day parade.  From there, the students who are participating in Olympic Day will head to Memorial High School for the day's events while the rest will return to Bacon for Fun Day.  To everyone who is participating in either event - have fun, and be safe!

Messy eater!  Apparently, it was good...

Even teachers get in on the birthday selfie action!

Who doesn't like a birthday selfie? (And why didn't anyone tell Mr. Coyle his hair got messed up??)
