Bacon Bears,

You Matter!

Soccie Game 2012 
We ended a short, but eventful week on a really good note today! Students and teachers met in the gym for our annual Soccie game. In between innings, there were activities for each of the grade levels. Teachers came out victorious in the Soccie game by 1 point! 

It was obvious from the "Wobble" competition that the teachers had been practicing. 4th grade girls suffered their first defeat in overtime. What a wobble!

When we return from the Thanksgiving break, we are going to have a busy schedule. Check out the weekly overview for all the activities.

On behalf of the entire RM Bacon Staff, have a great Thanksgiving!

Bacon Bears,

You Matter!
Thank you to everyone who attended the Halloween Frolic! A fun time was had by all :)

On Wednesday, we were treated to our first snowfall of the school year! Some classes used this as a teachable moment, and went out in the snow! Besides playing in the snow, kids asked big questions about the snow.

Ms. Fallows's 1st grade class asked themselves...what is snow? Where does it come from? What does it taste like?
After going outside and "collecting" snowflakes, Mrs. DiGorgio's class drew pictures and studied the mirror images of the flakes

We are getting into the life long fitness mode at RM Bacon this week. We are excited to be participating in the World Run Day on Monday at 2:00 PM.
