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!
To learn more about our vision for Kathryn Sue Simonton, please read through our mission and belief statements.
We want parents and community members to know that great things are happening here. Each day as part of our morning announcements, student leaders recite the Pledge of Allegiance, the Character Pledge, and the preamble to The Declaration of Independence for all the students to hear and participate within each classroom. Our journalism club provides a leadership quote of the day including a lesson on how the students can use the 7 Habits in their daily routine. We focus on helping our students be the best citizens and people they can be.
Dear Simonton Families,
I can't believe we are already in the fourth quarter. Time flies when we are working hard and having fun! As we closed out March we began taking the AzMERIT test, and I am very excited for our students to show what they know.
This is the busiest time of year on campus, and we will be hosting many special events that highlight our students and their accomplishments this year. Below is a list of upcoming dates for you to mark on your calendar.
Don't forget to review the calendar in our newsletter for more information about our special events.
In closing, I am very proud to announce that our school has officially had the second year of our leader in me grant renewed by the I Am a Leader Foundation. During this first year, our focus has been on creating a climate and culture of leadership. Next year the focus will be on integrating leadership and academics. Our staff will be receiving training once again from the Franklin Covey company.
As always, I want to thank the Simonton community for your continued support of our school.
