Bacon Academy asks for parent input
A group of parents of current Bacon Academy students have created a survey for the development of the school’s new mission statement. The administration is asking all Colchester public schools parents to take a moment to answer a few short questions. Your responses are key in the process of arriving at a mission statement that will drive Bacon Academy toward the educational goals it has set for the school and its students. The survey can be found at http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/GLCCR9H or on the home page of the website www.colchesterct.org. If you need a paper copy, they are located at the Board of Education office in the Town Hall. Please complete the survey by Feb. 25. Your time and input are greatly appreciated.
