October 24 - 28, 2016

Bacon Bears,

Hello, everyone!  The picture above captures a simple but true concept that we embrace here at Bacon.  We believe that all kids can learn, and all means all.  Anyone who is willing to put in the time and effort can achieve success.  Our job as educators is to engage, equip, and empower every student for academic, behavioral, and social success.  So - work hard, get smart, and go far.  All can do it, and all means all!

This week was Wellness Week.  I want to thank Ms. Spanbauer for putting together a week of great info and activities.  The students and staff did a nice job with the color-of-the-day, and the classrooms and halls resounded with the positive messages of the week.

On Monday, Dina Klaudi and I completed the SAMS time and task management training.  I have set a personal goal for how much time I want to spend on instructional matters during the year.  So far, it's going very well, and I can already tell my time is more focused and productive.  Our SAMS trainer has been great, and he's been helping us implement the program quickly and effectively.  Thanks to all the Bacon Bears for your patience and understanding as we collectively adjust to this new system.  I'm looking forward to seeing where this takes us.

The I&RS team had it's first meeting of the year.  I was able to stop in a few times during their sessions, and it was apparent that everyone was focused on helping our students.  Nice job, team. 

On Tuesday, Bacon will be having it's annual Halloween Frolic from 6-8.  We hope to see you! 

Have a great week, everyone.  Be great.  Be awesome.
"Together, we can. Together, we will."
