Bacon Bears,

Keys to Character Unlock The Future

We had a great Wellness Week. Kids and Teachers participated by wearing colors each day that symbolized wellness. Thank you to Mrs. Spanbauer for coordinating the week!

In addition, last week we had our first Bear Bucks and Bear Challenge. Students were able to spend their Bear Bucks in the store on various items. Those students who were brave enough to take on the challenge were treated to a surprise. The challenge required students to show their "spit ball" skills... Here is the video from the challenge:

October 12- 15

Bacon Bears,

The leaves are turning and fall is upon us. Hopefully everyone enjoyed the "fall break." Our teachers worked very hard on Friday learning about how to improve instruction for the students.

This week is very busy. We have a bunch of activities planned for the week. Our students in grades 1, 3 and 5 will be getting their annual vision screening. On Friday our local Fire Department will be visiting to talk with the students about fire safety. The students will also get a chance to go into the "smoke house" to learn more about the impact of fire safety.

We have a lot to do in only four days!
