We hope everyone had a great week, and we hope you're currently having a fantastic weekend. Bacon school is officially entering the busy season that leads up to the end of the school year. Be sure to check the schedule and upcoming dates for more info.
Last week, we officially kicked off PARCC testing. I'd like to thank Amy Scull, Bacon's test coordinator, for organizing and heading up this effort. During this time each year, our school enters "test mode," and it takes a steady hand and focus from all involved to successfully do what we have to do. Great job, all! So far so good, and I have no doubt this will be another successful PARCC in the books when all is said and done.
Check out the pics to see our awesome safety patrol members as they served breakfast for the Kiwanis Club. Nice job, Bears, and thank you Mrs. Muhlbaier for always doing a wonderful job with our patrol each year!
Staff members, students, parents, local businesses, community members...Bacon's spring Community Night will be on 5/22! This will be a rain-or-shine event. We hope you see you.
Everyone have a nice, safe, productive, and HAPPY week!
