Focus was the name of the game this week. As a school, we've been focusing on student learning, positive reinforcement of our school rules and expectations, positive and productive interactions with parents, and taking a look at ways to make the school even better. In short, this has been a busy week of focused planning in many areas, and through it all, we are focused on ways to make Bacon a place of learning and fun. Our first PBIS assembly of the year is coming up, and we've got fun things in store for our students. We can't wait to recognize all the Bears who've gotten off to a great start this year. It's all about them - the students - and everything we do should be focused on how to improve our school for their benefit. I'm proud to say that I work alongside many wonderful people who focus on our students. They are the reason for everything we do.
Be great. Until next time,
"Together we can. Together we will."
PBIS (Positive Behavior Intervention and Support) Update
Bacon school is happy to report that we are looking to have a great month and a great opening to the school year. Kim Berry, our PBIS aide, has been doing a great job helping to redirect and refocus students who may have needed an extra push or a little extra motivation to help them refocus. Also, our teachers have been doing a wonderful job reviewing their classroom expectations, and through effective teamwork, we've been able to keep the number of incident referrals low. Very low. Great job, everyone!
Thanks to Kim Berry for giving our PBIS signs an update. They look great!
Back to School Night Update
This year's Back to School Night focused on parent and community involvement. Members of the Home School Association, United Advocacy Network, Millville Police Department Chaplains, and the Phi Beta Sigma fraternity (which adopted us again this year) all spoke to our parents about getting involved, plugging in, and coming together to make Bacon school the best it can be. Thanks to all the parents and staff who went above and beyond.
