There was loads of learning taking place at SIMS today, and our teachers were model students during PLC as they collaborated and engaged in conversations and activities to promote student growth through intentional and focused instructional strategies. We are also super excited about the unique opportunity we have to participate in "Instructional Walks" this year and learn from our colleagues. We can't wait to see our students and staff shine as teachers refine their craft by "trying on" strategies, protocols, and management techniques that they have observed in other classrooms throughout our building! 🐅 #refine #pr3mier
SIMS Families - Please read the following reminder from our athletic department concerning athletic events in A3. We greatly appreciate your help with this policy.
Thank you to Christi Upton and Riann Chapman, our SIMS Mental Health Counselors from the Department of Mental Health, for preparing an amazing "Healthy Habits" Assembly for all of our students today. Students learned about the importance of resiliency: how to anchor ourselves with meaningful work, purpose, and people. We also learned how to take better care of ourselves by focusing on the Five Pillars of Mental Health: positive community, quality and quantity of sleep (without screens/devices), every day exercise, and spending time outside, along with a healthy diet. Thank you to Mrs. Upton for engaging students today and teaching them how to "Bounce Back!" We look forward to more partnerships and learning opportunities this year and in the future. Go, Tigers!
Take a look at our week ahead! We have a lot of important events upcoming at SIMS next week. Go Tigers!
