Spring Break March 29 - April 7

Bacon Bears,

You Matter!

We made it! Spring Break is here. Even though the Spring Break comes at a different time each year, it always seems to occur at the right time! We all need to recharge our batteries, connect with family and return on April 8th ready for the last few months of 2012-13 school year.

Last week, the Bacon Bears had a lot of Egg-tivities since it was the week before Easter. Here is a video (worth the 9 plus minutes) compiled by Mrs. DeVita. In the video, you will see footage from the Students vs. Staff Hockey Game (We won of course), the egg-travaganza, and the Bacon Bears having a goofie, good time! Eggposible is Nothing!

Here are some random pictures from the last week:

Keep up the great work!
