Good evening Simkins family this is your assistant principal Shannon Vaka. 

We are looking forward to another great week in The Shark Tank. 

Tomorrow evening we will have our first PTA meeting of the year.  We invite you to come to the Media Center at 5:30p!  We are looking forward to strengthening our partnership with our Simkins parents.  We have BIG plans for this school year!

Please remember to encourage your scholar to wear their One Card each day to school.  Students use these as they enter the building each day and in the cafeteria each day.  We appreciate your help with this!  I am working on ordering One Cards for our Kindergarten students and students who are new to Simkins.  We plan to have this process complete by Wednesday of this week. 

If your child is a permanent car rider, and you don’t have a car rider tag, please let your child’s teacher know.  This helps our car rider line move smoothly and safely.  Thanks to all for your patience as we work through the increased number of car riders at the beginning of the year. 

Our last reminder is that our school day starts at 7:35a.   Your child will be tardy if they are not in the building at that time—we do not mark students tardy if the car rider line is causing delays.  However this has not been the case over the last several days.  Thanks so much for doing what you can to have your scholar to school on time 

We look forward to another great week!  Thanks for partnering with us to help make Simkins a great place to learn!

Go Sharks!
