School Climate Survey!
As part of the state's College and Career Readiness Index (CCRPI) which is similar to a report card, the Department of Education asks parents to participate in a short survey (24 questions). The percentage of parents who participate directly impacts our School Climate Star Rating on the CCRPI.
104 parents have completed this survey - thank you!
if you haven't taken the survey yet, please take a few minutes to complete it now!
NEW SURVEY!!!! PTA NEEDS YOUR INPUT!
The Simpson Elementary PTA knows that a strong partnership among our families, school leaders and community members is important to the success of our students and school. That’s why we are participating in the National PTA School of Excellence program, which grows partnerships between PTAs and schools to enrich the educational experience and overall well-being of all students.
We need your help! As part of the process, National PTA requests feedback from families, administrators and teachers at two points in the school year—the beginning and the end. Your feedback will help us improve our family-school partnership and achieve excellence. Please take 5 minutes to reflect on your experience and complete the survey.

The following Simpson Kilometer Kids Running Club athletes ran in Atlanta Track Club's Kilometer Kids Midweek Mile and Dash at Blackburn Park. The runners got a taste of what a cross country feels like and tackled the hilly course with strength and determination. Overall, the team of 100+ runners has logged a whopping 1300 miles since the first practice and if you started at Peachtree Corners, the amount they have run would carry them all the way to New Mexico!
