Welcome to Bacon Elementary

From the Desk of Mr. Horky

Dear Bacon Parents:

I’m sure this newsletter will find many of you busy filling the last weeks of summer with as many fun things as possible! Enjoy these last weeks as the start of the 2018-19 school year is just around the corner. I would like to share staff changes and a few reminders for the upcoming school year.

New Staff Members:

I’m excited to introduce our new staff members to our Bacon community. In addition to the new staff members we will be seeing some familiar faces in different places........


News from the Counselor

Hello Bacon! My name is Rachel Eaton, and I am so excited to join the Bacon Community this year as your school counselor. This will be my twelfth year as a counselor in PSD. I spent nine years at Fossil Ridge High School and two years at Lesher Middle School. I have enjoyed working with fifth graders to support a smooth transition into middle school and realized that elementary students bring a lot of joy and laughter into my life. Getting to work in an elementary school is a dream come true!
