As the 22-23 athletic season has come upon us, we wanted to share some important reminders and safety information for those middle school students and families who plan to attend any athletic event (Middle School or High School) at CHS or SIMS… - Students should be accompanied and monitored by a parent/guardian or assigned adult at all times. Students roaming around the event unaccompanied is not allowed. - Students must have a ride ready to pick them up at the immediate end of the event. Failure to follow this rule could result in a loss of attending future athletic events. We greatly appreciate your attention to this and your help. Together we can continue to make our athletic events a great place to be! Go Tigers!
We will begin with our iReady Diagnostic testing tomorrow and Thursday. Please make sure your student arrives to school on time with their Chromebook charged and a set of headphones for testing. Let’s make it a great day!

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.
