The Bacon Belt is awarded to the winner.


The Bi-Monthly Baconator award was created in the school year of 2019-2020 in an effort to encourage our students to feel grattitude, and for them to easily communicate that gratitude that gratitude to our staff. 

How It Works

Students are welcome to Mr. Bacon's office to right a thank you card to any staff member in the building.  After completing the card, they place it in the "Bacon Box".  Every two weeks Mr. Bacon draws a card out of the box and whichever staff member is named on the card is the Baconator for the next two weeks.  The winner receives this traveling belt award while they are "The Baconator"
