Awesome (adj): extremely impressive, inspiring great admiration, extremely good, excellent.
At the heart and core of who we are and what we do as a school are beliefs that everyone can be awesome, everyone is awesome, and everyone can do awesome things and make awesome choices. Regardless of where we come from and what we look like, we all have awesomeness inside us. So, let it out! Choose to be awesome. Like the sign above (which is hanging in our upstairs hallway) says, "Just be awesome."
That being said, I believe I work in an awesome school full of awesome people, and we just had an awesome week. We successfully concluded our first full Monday - Friday. Learning is in full swing. School pride is swelling. And to top it off, we just had an awesome event - our first Bacon Community Night. I'd like to thank each and every student, staff member, parent, business, law enforcement and fire department officer, community member, and community leader who took time to join us. It was a great night full of games, activities, eats and treats, friendship, fun, and family. We are tentatively planning on having another one in the spring. Will you join us?
Plans are well underway for our Halloween Frolic, which will take place sometime in late October. Details coming soon.
Please join us for our Back to School Night on Tuesday, September 20th at 7 p.m. Bacon's HSA, the Millville Explorers, and Bruce Cooper and other members of the Phi Beta Sigma fraternity will be on hand. Last year, the fraternity adopted Bacon school, and we are continuing the partnership this year. We look forward to seeing you and "clapping you in" at Back to School night.
Be great. Have an awesome week.
Together, we can. Together, we will.
PBIS News with Ms. Berry
We have had a great start to the school year here at RM Bacon School. Our returning students picked right back up where they left being safe, responsible, and respectful. They are also helping the new students learn what it means to be a Bacon Bear. This year we have a lot of ideas for our Bear Bucks Store and other events. Here at RM Bacon School we prove that it's fun to be Safe, Responsible, and Respectful.
(Ms. Berry gave the school rules posters an overhaul. We'll be showing those off next week. They look great!)
Coming soon - the return of Coach's Corner
