  • Welcome Sisi! We are excited to welcome the newest member of our Spartan Family – a five-month old Australian Labradoodle named Sisi.  She will be joining us in late April as a fully trained, hypo-allergenic therapy dog. Sisi is currently going through twelve weeks of training at “Ultimate Canine” in Indiana. After that, select members of Roger Bacon’s faculty and staff will have three days of training as handlers. Sisi will spend her days at school, as well as attending games, assemblies, retreats, etc. The trained handlers will instruct students on how to best interact with and behave around Sisi so the experience is both enjoyable and productive. We look forward to you meeting Sisi when you visit Roger Bacon! If you would like to contribute to her ongoing care (food, vet bills, supplies) please contact Principal Steve Schad at (sschad@rogerbacon.org).

  • Attention Senior Parents: Each year, the Roger Bacon yearbook staff offers parents the opportunity to honor their son or daughter with a PDA (Public Display of Affection) ad in the yearbook. These ads support the production of the yearbook and are a wonderful way to preserve your senior's memories for years to come.
