July Wrap Up

Summer Greetings, Bacon Bears!

I hope everyone is having a fantastic summer so far.  It certainly has been a hot one - hopefully, you've all found a way to avoid over-heating.  The good news - you still have about a month to soak in as much freedom and excitement as you can.  Get out there (or stay in - always a good option) and enjoy it.

Much of the planning and prep work for the opening of school is well underway.  Letters are typed, packets are made, and opening day/opening week presentations are being outlined.  The schedule is being reviewed, purchase orders will be rolling in, and the pivot and march to being school-ready has begun.          

Building Update
The building will be "teacher ready" by 8/11.  At that time, you'll be able to come in and prep your rooms.  Our fantastic maintenance and custodial team will be finishing the main floor this week and knocking out the rest of the bottom floor sometime next week. In the final weeks of August, the team will work hard to ensure our building is "student ready" (putting the finishing touches on cleaning, organizing, hanging bulletin boards, etc.)  In the mean time, check out some pics from around Bacon.

Working hard - thank you!

I'll be updating you again probably around mid-August.  Until then, be safe, enjoy your break, and I look forward to seeing you in around a month (some of you sooner).
