From the Desk of Mr. Horky

Dear Bacon Parents:

It’s August which means school is right around the corner! I hope everyone has been able to take some time this summer to relax and refresh as we get ready to head into the new school year. At this point, there are still decisions being made regarding health and safety protocols. Please look for ongoing school communication as guidelines become more clear.

New Staff Members:

Each year, it’s exciting to welcome new staff members to our Bacon community. In addition to the new staff members, you will be seeing some familiar faces in different places.

New Staff

  • Paige Custer has taken the reigns as our new Office Manager. She hit the ground running two-weeks ago, I’m confident that we are in good hands with Paige as a member of the front office staff.
  • Our early childhood team this year will be Hope Manning and Lindsay Hoyt. We are blessed to have these two energetic professionals supporting our youngest learners at Bacon!

  • Rachel White will be a new face at Bacon as she has joined our third-grade teaching team. She brings a variety of experiences that will help her make it count for all learners in her classroom.

  • I’m excited to share that Lisa Sweet will be our new school counselor. Her bubbly personality will be a nice addition to our school.

Familiar faces in new places:

  • Marci Kincaid is returning to the classroom as a first-grade teacher. I’m excited for her to join her new team and to bring her passion for teaching little ones!

  • Our literacy lab will be led by Debbie Fredericks. She is a perfect fit to provide targeted intervention support for students in the area of literacy.

  • Our fifth-grade team has a new member. Chris Gerken will be moving from second grade upstairs to join his new teaching team.

  • Trey Findlay will be taking on the role as G/T teacher and math interventionist.
