Welcome Parents!  On this page you will find useful information for you as a parent of a Bacon student. Our parent community is comprised of over 325 families.  Parents are involved in many aspects of the school, including numerous volunteer activities.  We are extremely fortunate to have so many caring, generous families that support their children and the staff at Bacon Elementary in so many ways.  We hope every new parent feels welcome and that every current parent is excited to be part of our school.
