May 26 - 30

Bacon Bears,

Its all about respect!

I hope everyone has enjoyed their Memorial Day Weekend. Teachers, if your are looking for resources for your students to understand Memorial Day, I put a few resources together.

This week we will be preparing for our Alumni Night on May 30 at 6:00 PM. As we get closer to the event, the gym will be turned into another world. Students will see the previous school colors (Did you know that the colors were Maroon and Gold?). This event will be very special. For more information, check out our Alumni Night page on our blog.

Last week, the Bacon Bears competed in the 37th annual Olympic Day. Our Bears were as spirited as ever as they marched towards Memorial High School. Once at the competition, our Bears earned many ribbons, but more importantly, they made lasting memories. While the 4th and 5th graders were at Olympic Day, students in K-3 had the time of their life at Fun Day! Thanks to our sponsors for the events: HSA! Also, thanks to everyone who assisted with coordinating the day!!!!!

 Bacon Bears,

This week we will be finishing up NJASK Make-ups for any student who was absent. Since the make-ups will be taking place, we will be maintaining our building wide testing plan. After make-ups are completed, we are looking forward to Olympic Day and Fun Day on Friday! Students in grade 4 and 5 will be competing against the 5 other elementary schools in Millville. Students in grade K-3 will be involved in Fun Day! They will have water slides, bouncy houses, and all types of activities for them to just have FUN!

Bacon Bears,

This week the students in grades 3 - 5 will be taking the NJASK. Testing begins right after the announcements. Students need to be on time! If a student who is in grades 3, 4 or 5 is late, they will not be permitted to test and will have to take the Make-up next week.

May 5 - 9

Bacon Bears,

Its all about respect!

We are one week away from the NJASK. Students in grades 3, 4 and 5 are making a few last minute preparations for next week's big assessment. Our teachers are making sure that their classrooms are "standardized" and that desks are in rows.

In addition to the NJASK preparation, our teachers are busy making their summative evaluation meetings with Dr. Cook. This year is a little different then in the past because we are using the McREL evaluation tool. Teachers are reflecting on the school year and planning for next year.
