Dear Simas Parents,
I would like to officially welcome you to the 2020-21 school year. I am thrilled to be serving as your proud Simas Elementary Principal for this coming up school year. We are honored to have been named a California Distinguished & Honor Roll School!
Simas Elementary is an extraordinary school that places children first. We will continue to focus on refining our teaching practices to best support the academic rigor of our Common Core Standards, making your child our number one priority, as well as researching how we can better serve our students and community. We have a very talented staff, involved and dedicated families, and students who eagerly accept challenges that we offer. I am thrilled to be a member of this learning community. Even in a distance learning format, we are going to push our students to their full potential.
School Mission and Goals:
At Joseph M. Simas Elementary we believe all children can achieve high standards, become creative and independent thinkers, and develop strong character as they prepare to be tomorrow’s leaders. We are responsible to serve as facilitators for the nurturing and development of every child: academically, physically, socially, and emotionally.
Our School Goals:
- The school community will strive to develop students’ fullest academic, social, and creative potential as a foundation for life-long learning.
- Our school community will ensure a safe, secure, and positive environment for all students and staff.
- Parent involvement, communication, and commitment will be encouraged and valued.
- We will foster appreciation and respect for individuals and cultural diversity of our community as we work together toward common goals.
I look forward to serving you and your children again this school year. We are eager and excited to have another successful school year watching our Simas Stars Shine!
Your PROUD Simas Principal
