Welcome to Bacon Elementary

From the Desk of Mr. Horky

Dear Bacon Families,
We are embarking on the close of another school year. I must say that time passed quickly, and in that time, we have accomplished many things to be proud of! I’ve been blessed to observe teachers teaching and students learning. I have observed parents taking an active role in supporting our school’s mantra of Make IT count for all learners! I have observed community partners be supporters of our students.
Your child has learned a lot. They’ve read new books and mastered new skills. Now is the perfect time to talk about all the lessons they’ve learned. Find a time when you can have a relaxing chat about school. You might even plan something special, such as going out for a treat or making a favorite meal together.....


Primary News - Second Grade

The kids are learning that weather can be very complex and hard to predict. We will wrap up our Air and Weather unit with a field trip to the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) in Boulder. The National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder. The building was designed by I. M. Pie. He is the architect that also designed the glass pyramid in front of the Louvre Museum in Paris, France. Not only is it in a beautiful setting, it is an amazing trip for the kids. They will learn about how real-life scientists study and predict the weather.....

Intermediate News – Fifth Grade 

In writing, 5th graders are researching biographies of important historical figures. After learning about a person from the past and the important role he or she played, the students will present their new knowledge in the form of an interactive “Wax Museum.” They will write a short biographical monologue to recite as they assume the character of the figure they have researched. Along with their fellow 5th grade peers, the 4th grade students will also be invited to tour the “Wax Museum” and interact with the “exhibits” to learn about people from our past. It’s sure to be both fun and informative!.......
