Then, Now, Always
Bacon Bears,

This week, we said goodbye to Ryan Hudson (for his personal farewell to Bacon, see last week's blog).  Our staff meeting opened with some shop talk and a brief review of discipline data, but the last part was dedicated to Ryan and the legacy he built here at Bacon.  Again, we wish him all the best as he transitions to his vice principal position at Lakeside.

Thank you!

Our week kicked off with a lunch to honor our local first responders.  Members of the Millville Police and Fire Departments, as well as officers from the Cumberland County Sheriff's Department, stopped by to eat with our students and to spend some time socializing and answering questions.  A huge thanks to all who came out.  We appreciate your service and your willingness to give up part of your day to be with our Bacon Bears.

Serving others, community pride

The Bacon safety patrol had a busy week.  In addition to dealing with the rain (pretty much everyday) during their outside duties, they helped serve breakfast at a Kiwanis club event over the weekend.  Also, safety patrol members Kendall Sooy and Ryan Goehle were honored at a Kiwanis club luncheon later in the week.  They raised the most money for the upcoming safety patrol trip, and they were recognized along with other district winners. Great job to all the patrol members for braving the weather all week, being involved in your community, serving others, and bringing honor to your city and school!  Thank you!


The bear bucks store and bear challenge were up and running this week.  Our store was swamped as excited students traded their hard-earned bucks for various items.  The challenge was a hit, and the students and staff had a blast as participants attempted to win additional prizes during the competition.  This month's event was a bucket toss, which wasn't as easy as students first thought.  Several students were winners, however, and regardless of the outcome, they all had a great time.

Teacher appreciation week was in full swing at Bacon.  The staff was given treats and eats (who doesn't like treats and eats??), and their hard work and dedication were acknowledged and rewarded.  Teachers and all staff - thank you for what you do!!

Later in the week, Mr. Coyle took some time to speak with the 5th grade class.  They are nearing the end of their experience here at Bacon, and he shared his insights and thoughts about what they should be expecting at Lakeside Middle School next year.  The upcoming transition form elementary to middle school is important, and we here at Bacon want to ensure that our Bears are equipped for future and continued success.

Don't forget - The new date for the Bacon Alumni night is 5/20. For more information, please see our Facebook page (click here) or call the school at 856-327-6100.
