Dear Simonton Families,
October has come and gone. This month featured many highlights: parent/teacher conferences, a charitable donation to a local cancer support non-profit, and a successful Spooktacular.
A big thank you goes out to all of the families who purchased pink Simonton shirts in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. We met our fundraising goal and donated the proceeds to My Hope Bag during a pep assembly on October 24. In support of those undergoing cancer treatment, two students were selected to shave my head during the assembly. The students had a great time while supporting a great cause.
I would also like to thank our community for supporting Simonton's 1st Annual Spooktacular. Our teachers, staff, and parent volunteers put in countless hours planning and prepping for our event, and I couldn't have asked for a better inaugural event. It was great to have the opportunity to see so many of our students and families in a social setting and in their great costumes. Thank you for spending your evening with us. I hope you had a great time.
On a closing note, I'd like to acknowledge how proud I am of the hard work our teachers and students have put into this school year. Every grade level's quarterly benchmarks are higher than last year's quarter one benchmark scores. Our focus on "bell to bell instruction" is beginning to pay off, and I look forward to continuing the trend of increased benchmark performance.
It's November and that means the beginning of the holidays so let me be one of the first to wish you a happy and safe holiday season.
Thank you for choosing Simonton Elementary School.
