December 18 - 22, 2017


We just wrapped up a fun and exciting week here at Bacon.  Let's get to it.

A Bear making an ornament for her tree
Last week, Bacon hosted our Trim-a-Tree event.  There were cookies, hot chocolate, and ornaments galore, and it was a great time for families to get together as a big school family and do something seasonal together.  I'd like to thank Mrs. Lore and Mrs. DeVita for organizing the event, and many thanks to the staff members who came back (or stayed) to help make sure the event ran smoothly.  Thank you all.  Everyone had a blast, and it was beginning to look a lot like Christmas as glitter, glue, sweets, and treats made everyone happy and joyous.

On Thursday, we were proud to announce Mrs. Gandy as our teacher of the year.  We were equally proud to present Ms. Berry as our educational services specialist of the year.  These fine people work hard each and every day, and they put the students first in all they do.  But honestly, we had a problem narrowing these awards down to just them, and that's a great problem to have.  Many of our staff members work tirelessly to give our Bears every possible opportunity to be successful and provide them with a great experience at Bacon.  From the cafeteria to the classrooms and everywhere in between, the Bacon staff are an amazing group of people who get the job done and put kids #1.

Running to get the prizes...
...and stuffing them into the stockings

We had our final PBIS Pep Rally of the calendar year last week.  This month's challenge was the Stocking Stuffer Sprint!  Students who received Paws Ups in the month of December were selected at random to participate.  The goal? To find certain items on their shopping list and put them in stockings.  After one minute, the students got to keep their stocking and the prizes.  In all, 12 students (six from grades K-2, and six from grades 3-5) participated and walked away with a lot of goods.  Afterwards, we did drawings from the other students who received Paws Ups in December, and each winner reached into a prize box and came away with an early present. 

That's all for now.  Everyone have a great week - the last school week of 2017!
