Thanksgiving Holidays November 25-29th!
Welcome Dr. Taffeta Connery to Simpson!
Dr. Connery had an opportunity to meet the staff at our annual "Blessings Breakfast". After the staff breakfast, she met students in Simpson Square and then joined Ms. Schmit on "Good Day Simpson!" Dr. Connery is excited to come to Simpson and we are happy to have her!
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.
128 parents have completed this survey - thank you!
if you haven't taken the survey yet, please take a few minutes to complete it now!
