Our school system will watch the possible impending arrival of Hurricane Dorian over the next several days. If schools close due to bad weather, the school system may decide to have a Digital Learning Day. Please read the flyer below about what to do if we have a Digital Learning Day.

Media Center Release Form

Parents will find a Media Release form today in your child's folder. This form is called an "Opt Out" form. If you do not want your child's picture in any school-related publication such as class roster, yearbook, etc., please sign the form and return it to your child's teacher Tuesday morning.

There is no need to return the form if you allow us to include your child's picture in school publications.

Reflections Theme - "Look Within"

Get your creative juices flowing and participate in Reflections this year. The theme is "Look Within."

We encourage ALL superstar students at Simpson to create original works of art. You can choreograph a dance, produce a film, write a literary masterpiece, compose your own music, take amazing photographs, and create visual art. You can create up to three and in more than one category. So, TELL US YOUR STORIES, kids!

Rules and entry forms are available in Simpson Square and on our PTA website.

All entries are judged on three criteria:

(1) Interpretation of Theme,

(2) Creativity, and

(3) Technique.

All entries must be turned in before the 8:50 am bell rings on Thursday, September 19th and Friday, September 20th.
