April 16 - 20, 2018


Another fun week has come and gone in the land of the Bacon Bears!

Last week, our book fair was in full gear.  Although shortened by the snow days from earlier this year, Mrs. Rowland and her crew still managed to sell near record-breaking amounts of books and other items.  Thank you to Mrs. Rowland for organizing and managing the fair, and thanks to the parents and staff members who helped out with sales and who assisted the customers as they shopped.  It was a team effort, and this year's fair was an undoubted success.

On Friday, Bacon participated in Bubbles for Autism to raise awareness for those affected with autism spectrum disorder. The event began with the whole school meeting in the gym to briefly talk about the disorder, what bubbles represent, and why we use bubbles to raise awareness.  We then filed out to the front lawn and participated in the event for about 15 minutes.  The weather was perfect, and our Bears were able to do something positive and have a little fun while doing it.   

You'll see in this week's "Bacon Pics" section our pictures from the Egg Roll.  I thought they were uploaded last week, but I was wrong!  I'd like to thank Mrs. Muhlbaier and her 5th grade team for organizing the event.  Our whole school got to have fun, and the classes that got the most eggs from grades K-2 and 3-5 were able to raise money for their classroom.  Also, thanks for Mrs. Gandy for the great shots of the event. Well done, all!

That's it from the update desk.  Everyone have another safe, fun, productive week.
