Bacon Parent Council is a monthly meeting that occurs on a Monday each month before the Board of Education Meeting as scheduling allows. Principal Matt Peel facilitates these meetings. It is an informal, informational meeting designed to give parents a low key, relaxed opportunity to learn more about what is happening at Bacon Academy, within the district, and in the bigger picture of education. This is also an opportunity for parents to bring questions they would like answers to as well as a forum for teachers and administration to share topics that they feel are valuable. Please contact me, Marycia Malloy, at mmalloy@colchesterct.org with any questions or topics you would like to learn more about.
