  • The Simpson Source for April 27, 2016

    Each spring, we pause to say thank you to the excellent men and women who make our school the best in the universe. This Wednesday (4-27-16) is Secretaries Day. The secretary is the backbone of any organization and Trish Alexander, Becky Legates, and Christy Tolliver are no exception. Kuddos to our entire secretarial team for a job well done. Also, next week begins “Teacher Appreciation Week.” Take a moment to thank a teacher who made profound impact in your life or your child’s life. Teachers are amazing individuals and this is definitely the case at W.B. Simpson and the Kent ILC. Thanks to our entire faculty members for making a positive impact in your students’ lives.

Thanks to our librarian, Dawn Card, and CRHS Teacher, Amy Finley, for coordinating this joint venture.

    * Wednesday, May 4th – 
    It is ACES Day! This stands for “All Children Exercise Simultaneously.” This phenomenon was started by New Jersey P.E. Teacher, Len Saunders, to have students across America exercising at the same time. Former Simpson P.E. Teacher, Jim Fennemore, began this tradition at Simpson and it continues with our current P.E. Teacher, Karine Scott. Our students, along with millions of children world-wide, will be exercising all morning. From 9:00 AM to 11:00 AM, our students will be exercising, participating in relays, and taking a community walk along the nature trail. It is a great day to be a kid!


    Thinking Around the Corner…
    As stated in the weekly phone call, there has been a slight change in the days designated for the 3rd Marking Period Awards Ceremony. Due to the local school board election, we are moving the date of one of the ceremonies to May 11th instead of May 10th. This will help to alleviate any parking issues that may occur. The classes and times for each day have remained the same…just one of the days have been moved to May 11th. Here is the schedule for the 3rd Marking Period Awards Ceremony.
