November 21 - 25, 2016


"Silent gratitude isn't much use to anyone."  G.B. Sterns

As I write this week's blog entry, I can't help but think how grateful I am for the honor and privilege of being in such a great school and great school district.  How I know this is true is simple - I like coming to school each and every day.  Sure, there are challenges and difficulties inherent in any job, but on the whole, when you like doing what you do and you like the people around you, you can't help but feel grateful.  I'm thankful to spend those hours with wonderful students and a wonderful staff.  This week, I ask...please, tell someone how grateful or thankful you are for them - a family member, a friend, someone you work with...anyone.  Those words are so impactful, and besides, it might just be that someone needs some encouragement.  You never know...

We had a great week at Bacon, but the Big Event was by far the FEAST! Seeing the school come together in one place to break bread and spend time together was awesome.  It made me thankful to be part of this school family, and it left quite an impression on me that I still feel. A big thanks to all who made this happen, and honestly, that's most of the school.  I'd also like to thank members of the Cumberland County Sheriffs Dept. and Millville Police Department for coming out to serve and partake in the festivities.  You are all appreciated.  

The Week Ahead

Our parent-teacher conferences started last Friday, and they'll run until Tuesday. If you aren't sure of your appointment time or date for Monday or Tuesday, please call the school.  

The book fair wraps on Wednesday.  If you haven't been down yet to check it out, please do so.  Parents, your child's classes have scheduled times, so make sure if your child is getting something, they are ready on the correct day.  If you have any questions, please reach out and let us know.  

We have early dismissals Monday through Wednesday at 1:45.  And, of course, there is no school on Thursday or Friday.

And so, some parting words:

"Cultivate the habit of being grateful for every good thing that comes to you, and to give thanks continuously." -- Ralph Waldo Emerson

Be thankful, be grateful, be great.
