Welcome to Bacon Elementary

From the Desk of Mr. Horky

Dear Bacon Community,

I want to say a BIG “Thank You” to all the PTO volunteers for their great work in organizing the Fall Festival and Book Fair that was held during the week of September 23rd. It was awesome to see so many Bacon families enjoying the well-planned family friendly activities.

As we move into October, we are nearing fall parent teacher conferences. Communication is one key to the success of individuals and organizations. As we work together to make it count for all learners, we feel it is important to keep communication lines open and honest.

Primary News ~ Kindergarten

Kindergarten classes are running full steam ahead learning their letter names and sounds. In math we are counting and comparing numbers and enjoying some fun math games. Our theme time consists of learning the iBark traits as well as focusing on the key of Integrity. We are also working hard to learn classroom routines and proper playground behavior. The students are also really enjoying interactive play centers at the end of each day. This is such an important part of the day where they learn to share, imagine and explore with no limits. We are also looking forward to our first field trip to Magpie Meander in October. 

Intermediate News ~ 3rd grade

Specials News ~ PE

I can’t believe it’s October already . September was one of the busiest first months of the year that I can remember. The second week of school was spent up at Eco week with the 5th graders. This experience for the 5th graders was better than any physical education that could be provided here at Bacon. Hiking in the mountains, climbing on the ropes course, while staying two nights in the dorms makes this such a fun and unique experience for everyone.

Literacy News

Dear Bacon Families,

I would like to introduce myself, I am the new literacy specialist at Bacon. The amazing Katherine Bunker and I provide literacy intervention in small groups to complement classroom instruction. I have a passion for literacy and completed my M. Ed in Literacy many years ago. I taught first grade for eight years and third grade for nine years. I’m thrilled about my new role at Bacon. When I tell people I’m a literacy interventionist, I tend to get asked, “What can I do to help my child be a better reader?” Well the answer can be as complex as the process of reading but there are some EASY things you can do to promote literacy skills with your child.
