In addition to Parent Conferences, Back-to-School Night, and Open Houses,
there are a number of vehicles for communicating news and events at St. Simon.
Important information is sent home every Tuesday in the Tuesday Envelope. This is an effective vehicle for communication between
home and school. Parents/guardians are to remove the information from the
envelope, read it, put it in a safe place for reference, and return the envelope
to school the next day with any required responses.
Our principal, Steven Rummell, sends out school news through his online Principal's Updates. Parents and community members may subscribe to these updates via email or RSS feed.
The Focus, our monthly school newsletter, contains a letter from
the principal and articles highlighting monthly school and parish activities
and upcoming religious celebrations, as well as a school calendar. The purpose of this newsletter is to foster better communication
between school and home. The R.S.V.P. feature in the Focus provides
a direct channel of communication between parents and principal. Copies of
the Focus are sent home with the youngest school-aged child
on the last Tuesday of each month in the Tuesday Envelope.
The school newspaper, St. Simon Says, is a quarterly publication
which is written and edited by students.
