It's not too late to buy a 2018-2019 SIMS yearbook! Only $30.00 until Christmas. The price increases to $35.00 after Christmas. Students can buy one at school by giving money to their AR teacher OR conveniently order one online at yearbookordercenter.com. SIMS code is 1351.
Penny War Update: The total amount raised for Special Olympics is now $389.50! 6th grade's total is $-5.51; 7th grade's total is $30.74; 8th grade's total is $56.24. As a reminder silver money deducts from the total. That's why 7th grade has less today than yesterday. Keep it up!
Penny Wars Update: So far our SIMS students have raised a total of $110.20 for Special Olympics! One of the Penny War rules is that silver money deducts points. With that being said, the grade breakdown is as follows: 6th grade is at -$13.25. 7th grade is at $60.67. 8th grade is at $6.93. If you have a sixth grader at SIMS load him or her up with pennies and bills so that they can get on the positive side! The grade that raises the most money will win a hat day!
Congratulations to our September Art Students of the Month: 7th grade- Olivia Jones; 6th grade- Olivia Martin; 8th grade- Sydney Broadwell.

Just a friendly reminder that students must abide by the dress code during spirit week- no masks, no full face paint, and no accessories that could potentially disrupt learning.
The Penny War has begun! The 6th, 7th, and 8th grades are competing against each other to see who can raise the most money for Special Olympics. Students earn points for their grade by bringing in pennies or bills. Students can deduct points from other grades by bringing in silver coins. The Penny War will run from Tuesday, Oct. 2-Friday, Oct. 12. The grade that raises the most money will win a free hat day!
