Parents and Guardians - We sent home a sheet of paper with a QR Code for our yearly school climate survey a few weeks ago. If you have not had a chance to fill out this survey, please do so ASAP. The survey closes tomorrow (5/24). Thanks.
Please note that at this time this text is informational only and no decisions have been made or plans adjusted… Should Crescent need to move their graduation ceremony to Friday (5/27) instead of Thursday (5/26) for any reason, SIMS will move our Awards Day Ceremonies forward to Thursday and follow our normal times (8:30am for 8th, 10:30am for 7th, and 12:15pm for 6th). Our original fallback date conflicts with ceremonies at the elementary schools. We understand that should this change be needed it might conflict with your prearranged schedules, so we will record our ceremony as well and post online to be viewed at your convenience. Thank you!

We hope everyone received our robocall with this information, but we wanted to put it out on social media as well.

If you need assistance with the QR code or survey, please feel free to contact us at the school. We are happy to help in any way.
