SUPERSTAR APPRECIATION!

Thank you to Melanie Uchida for planning our Barnes & Noble shopping and Simpson Singers event! We hope everyone enjoyed shopping while supporting our school, and listening to the special book readers and music by the talented Simpson Singers.

Happy holidays!

CHECKS FOR ICE CREAM!

The following are guidelines for group orders for ice cream:


  • If a parent wishes to purchase ice cream for the whole class to celebrate their child's birthday, he/she may do so by sending in a personal check made out to Simpson ES for $25.00 (no matter the class size). Exception: the cost for a special needs self-contained class can be reduced to $12.00 since their class sizes are smaller.
  • In order to follow our auditor's guidelines, we cannot accept cash.
Thank you for following our process!

WE WANT YOUR INPUT ABOUT OUR ART FUNDRAISER!

5TH GRADE PARENTS ONLY! YEARBOOK BABY ADS!

If you have already purchased your 5th grader's baby ad, you have until January 20, 2020 to upload the photos and text according to the instructions you received in the email from Balfour.

If you missed the deadline to purchase a baby ad, we will open sales again on January 6, 2020. This will be the LAST TIME to purchase baby ads.

We recommended buying early since you will need to upload your 5th grader's photos and text by the January 20, 2020 deadline.
