Wow! All of the Superstars are feeling the LOVE today! Thank you to all of our generous parents who purchased over 4,900 carnations! Because of your support we were able to raise $2500 for our Care Team to support our families in need. A HUGE thanks to Coach Halron for spearheading this fundraiser for 26 years!

Our Care Team directly supports students and their families with needs such as food, school supplies, utilities, transportation, holiday gifts and much more. Please contact Sheri Terry, Care Team Coordinator, if we can be of assistance.

Kilometer Kids Spring Season Registration is OPEN!

After a wildly successful pilot fall season, Simpson Elementary School's Kilometer Kids program resumes for a spring season!


What is Kilometer Kids? Atlanta Track Club's Kilometer Kids is a free, game-oriented running program designed to get kids active! The Kilometer Kids mission is to promote a healthy and active lifestyle to area youth through a running-based program, empowering children with the knowledge they need to make smart lifestyle choices. Through the program, kids learn that exercise is a fun and rewarding activity, opening the door for physical activity to become a lifelong habit.


When and Where? Practices will be held on Mondays and Wednesdays at the Pinckneyville Middle School track from 5-6 PM starting March 9, 2020.


Interested? Please find detailed information by clicking HERE to learn more about registration, practices, and volunteer opportunities. Note: registration for this season closes March 18.
