A Whole Lotta Dates to Remember!

Students and Parents,

     I can't believe how quickly this school year is rolling along.   There are some other calendar reminders below, but here are the really important ones to have!  First: on Monday, March 25 at 6:00 PM there will be a mandatory Washington, DC parent meeting here at Simmons.  Everyone who is attending the trip MUST be in attendance (students and chaperones).  Please bring a copy of you and your child's health card so we can copy it for our records.  You only need to bring yours if you are being a chaperone for the trip.  I know this is a hassle, but because we are traveling out of state, our policy is that we have these on file.  Sorry!

      Also, if you haven't completed your backgtound check yet, it needs to be done now!  Stop in any day this week and Mrs. Mize can help get yours started.

     Also, we have set up a photo blog for all of you to see real time what we see while we are on the trip (it'll be password protected, don't worry!).  Its web address address is  It'll be updated hourly while we're there!  There's also a "National Mall App" you might just want to check out for your iPhone/Android.  It has augmented reality!

     Lastly, here's a map of everything we're going to be seeing while we're there!
