February 27 - March 3, 2017


RM Bacon Elementary School had another great week.  We hosted our annual Pizza Bingo Night, and a number of families were able to join us for food and games.  Some great prizes were awarded, and it was nice to see so many students come out and enjoy a fun night of games and hanging out.  A big thanks goes to the Bacon Home School Association for sponsoring the event, and another big thanks to the wonderful Bacon staff who helped in whatever ways they were needed.

The Traveling Science Show visited Lakeside Middle School last week, and some of our Bacon Bears were able to check out the awesome presentation and experiments.  I'd like to thank Lakeside on behalf of the other elementary schools for hosting the event.  I know the parents and students who were able to make it had a great time.  Thanks also to the Parents As Leaders group for bringing the show to Millville.  A lot of people had a lot of fun - thank you!

The Kindergarten swim program is in full swing, and the students seem to be having a great time.  Thank you to the fantastic instructors at the Holly City Family Center for your hospitality and solid swimming instruction!  These Bears can swim!

Some Millville Senior High School students paid our Bears a visit and helped out with the sewing program that will be taking place.  Our students are getting their chorus robes custom fitted, and it was nice to have some of Millville's older students help out our Bears for a worthy cause.

All-City Band and Chorus rocked the house at Lakeside Middle School.  Congrats to all our Bears who were chosen for the honor of playing with Millville's other accomplished elementary musicians and singers.  You all did a great job!  Dedication pays off - keep playing, keep practicing, and keep working hard.

Alicia Discepola and Lauren Daigle brought their collective tech experiences to Bacon to help our staff members with technology related questions or issues.  Thanks to both for spending a day with us and imparting your tech wisdom to Bacon.  

The Week Ahead
This week, we have a lot to look forward to. For starters, it's Read Across America Week!  Each day, our Bears will be able to dress up and participate in the week's activities.  Please see the flyer below for details.  

Come and join us on Wednesday, March 1st, for our Read Around the World Family Night.  The fun will be from 6-8 pm, and we'll have plenty in store for parents and children to do AND taste.

Tuesday is our PBIS Respect the 29th Pep Rally.  We'll be addressing our attendance initiative among other things, and as always, we've got a few surprises in store for our students.

Also this week, Cassy from the RAC team will be joining us at Thursday's staff meeting to review the results of the Climate and Culture survey.

That's all for now.  Everyone have a great week, be great, and do great things

Thank you MSHS for helping our Bears get fitted for their chorus robes.
The fitting was a breeze

Making sure it looks right
Things seemed to go fine - or were they just looking busy for the camera??

MSHS making it happen!
