“Hi my name is Mrs.Bacon. Yes my name is spelled like the food and yes I like bacon.” If you are in Mrs. Dimarzio's second grade class or participated  in health class, you have heard this phrase before. Mrs. Bacon is filling in for Mrs. Dimarzio while she is having her second baby.

Second grade has been very busy this February. In math, Mrs. Bacon’s class is working with money, and double digit numbers with regrouping. In reading and writing, they are comparing and contrasting the “5 finger retell.”  Mrs Bacon explained the five fingers.

Pinky Finger: Characters: Who is the story mostly about?

Ring Finger: Setting: Where does the story take place? Where are the characters?

Middle Finger: Problem: What is the problem or challenge that that the character must face?

Index Finger: Events: What happens in the story? What does the character do to face the problem or challenges?

Thumb: Solution: How is the problem solved or the challenge met?

In social studies, they are learning about countries of the world. In science, they are learning about matter such as solids, liquids, and gases. The PATHS’ feelings for the week of February 10,2014 were shy and lonely.

Students interviewed think Mrs. Bacon is a great teacher.

principal's message

Dear North Community,                                                         April, 2014

March has been a busy month. We kicked off the month with Read Across America Day celebrating Dr. Seuss's birthday AND OUR COMMITMENT TO READING. Students were buddied up with upper classroom students and have become book buddies. The younger students wrote letters of encouragement to their book buddies before we began ELA MCAS testing.

North students walked a combined 1.013 miles during our morning walking club. On March 31, student school assignment letters went home in students' backpacks. Please call the school or review the Somerset Public School's Website regarding district lines.

Jump Rope for Heart raised $7193.81. North's PTO ran a very successful Bingo night on March 14th. On April 7, we will have a family math night where families can learn with their child through interactive math games. North's art work will be displayed in the school committee room during the month of May, and our spring book fair will take place during the month of May. April vacation is the week of April 18th. We return to school on April 28, 2014. Thank you for your continued support on our journey of learning.

Mrs. Elaine Sabra

Below are PATHS messages that will be included in the morning announcements during the month of April. PATHS is the social/emotional curriculum that has been implemented K-5.

Week of April 1

Sharing isn't always easy. Sharing parts of yourself; your ideas, feelings, even your time, is a big part of growing up. It is considering OTHER's needs and wants. Today, try sharing part of yourself with someone.


Week of April 7

Refuse to fight! People fight with words as well as with their hands. Walk away when you are teased or someone dares you to do something you know is wrong. Find an adult to help you solve your problem. Refuse to fight!!

Week of April 21



Week of April 28

Manners are behaviors. Manners can be good. You have good manners or manners can be bad. An example of good manners is saying "Thank you." An example of bad manners is pushing someone in line. This week, we will look at good manners that we should be practicing at school.
