Dear Bacon Community,

I want to officially welcome everyone to the 2018-2019 school year! Summer has come and gone and we must now focus our attention on the exciting school year ahead. It’s an honor to work with our highly qualified and dedicated staff, our wonderful students, and all the supportive parents. The elementary years are critical times of development for students and families and I look forward to working with all of you to make this school year successful.

This summer, our teachers spent much time preparing for the arrival of their students. They attended Professional Development trainings and are prepared to implement many new strategies in order to make it count for all learners. It promises to be another exciting and productive year at Bacon. On August 21st we welcomed 523 students as they entered our doors with smiling faces. During the first week, teachers spent the necessary time establishing their routines and procedures. This time spent at the beginning of the year will pay dividends for the entire year.

From all indications, after the first week, the 2018- 2019 school year is going to be a great one! There is a positive energy in the air from both students and staff. It’s exciting to walk into school each morning knowing the eagerness of each person associated with Bacon. Thanks for sharing your children with us – we are lucky to have them!
