October 8 - 12, 2018


Where's fall?  The calendar says October, and it's technically autumn, but it's hard to get in the fall frame of mind with temps in the 80's.  Summer lovers are probably enjoying this last (hopefully) shot of warmth, but there are those of us who are ready for the seasonal shift.  Where do you stand on this all-important debate?

Anyway, back to Bacon.  As usual, it was a busy but good week.  We'd like to thank the Millville Fire Department for their annual fire safety visit.  They do a great job with our Bears, and we look forward to when they come each year.  Thank you for all you do, and thank you for keeping us safe!

Also this week, we had a district-wide PD day on Wednesday.  In the morning, all staff members had a workshop on how to incorporate puppets into their lessons to teach empathy and encourage social-emotional development.  The workshop was fun, but the lessons were powerful.   

We've got a pretty busy month ahead of us.  Be sure to check the calendar and upcoming dates to stay on top of things.  And as always, enjoy the pics.

This week's thought:  Too many people focus on the summit of the mountain and not the mountain itself.  To enjoy the summit and the view, you can't skip the climb, and the only way to climb is one step at time. -- paraphrased from Olympic champion Scott Hamilton's Book Finish First
