Welcome to the Proud Home of the Stallions
Children Outside

We welcome you to the Simonton Elementary website. Our site's purpose is to provide helpful information to our parents, students, teachers, and community members regarding our school goals, events, and successes.

Please take a few minutes to browse through some of our helpful links (that will provide you with a wealth of good ideas for improving study habits, helping your children learn, and even great sites filled with parenting tips). We also include information on our school's staff, important dates on the school calendar, and an information filled Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page. So, enjoy your visit to our site and welcome to Simonton Elementary School!

A Message from Our Principal

Dear Stallion Families,

Our first month back has been a success! We are appreciative of all the families that continue to make Simonton Elementary their home school. So many of families have gone out of their way to make me feel welcomed to the community. I am truly humbled by your early support.

Most of our faculty members are returning members of the Simonton family, but we do have some new members on staff: Mrs. Bonadio, 1st grade; Mrs. Nugent, 6th grade; Mrs. Lori Huston, reading specialist; Mrs. Kristin McCord, reading coach; and Mrs. Angela Albers, social worker. Our new and returning faculty have been working hard since the opening bell, and will continue to do so until the last bell in May.

This year we have introduced thinking maps to our students. Thinking maps are curricular tools that help students organize their thoughts and apply them to the classroom and to life. There are a total of eight maps and each one is applied to a different thought process. You will probably begin seeing more and more of these student created maps as the year unfolds.

I would also like to invite all of our grandparents out to our Grandparent Day Morning Celebration on Friday, September 5. We will open the doors to our cafeteria at 7:00 a.m. Our PTO will have donuts, coffee, and 4x6 portraits available for purchase. Additionally, you may purchase a school breakfast for $1.75 if you choose.

One last thing I’d like to mention is Combs High School’s first home game is this Friday, September 5. It is also CHS’ Family Fun Night! Come out, and support our CHS students.

Thank you,

Bradley Shepstead
