November 28 - December 2, 2016


I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving.  It's hard to believe that December begins on Thursday!  Wow - pardon the cliche, but this year is really flying by.

Last week, we welcomed our parents for two nights of parent-teacher conferences.  I'd like to thank the parents that showed up, the staff for being accessible and open to our parents, and our custodial staff for working around all of us during those two important nights.  The book store was open, and we even got to introduce Ms. Jordan Hess to her students' parents. I'd also like to thank the parents who took a few minutes to fill out the parent survey.  We appreciate your feedback!

Our half-day on Wednesday went smoothly, and it was a nice sendoff to our staff and students heading into the four day weekend.  Again, I trust that in whatever way you celebrated the holiday, it was a time of relaxation, catching up with family and friends, reflection, and thankfulness.

We've got a lot going on this week.  Our PBIS Pep Rally is on Tuesday, and we'll be celebrating the students' 1st marking period accomplishments.  Also, the Bear Bucks store will be open for business, and I'm certain our students will be ready to spend their well-earned bucks.  Finally, we have a little surprise for those students who received a PAWS UP during the month of November!

We have a SIP team meeting on Wednesday morning (please note - it's on a Wednesday this month due to the holiday), and we have a staff meeting on Thursday morning.

Important info on the Yankee Candle Sale (and spread the word!)

That's all for now.  Everyone have a great week at RM Bacon Elementary School...where's it always a great day to be a BACON BEAR!!
