Welcome to Simon Elementary School


A message from Principal Eborn: 

March is recognized as the month we celebrate the past, present, and future accomplishments of women around the world. At Simon Elementary, we honor every woman that serves in any capacity to promote learning and growth for our scholars. To every mother, aunt, caregiver, guardian, and any woman in any role that supports a scholar within our school - Thank you! 
Can you believe that we are almost entering into the 3rd term of the SY 22-23??  It has been a challenging, but successful year and we are looking forward to finishing off strong. For students in grades 3-5, we are gearing up for our big summative assessment, PARCC, which will start in April.  Be on the lookout for more information about how you can partner with us to ensure your student(s) are adequately prepared.
Please find updates and “News You Can Use” outlined below for the month of March. Let’s continue to work together to ensure all our Lions continue to add B.A.S.S. to their R.O.A.R.

Immunization Information 

To attend schools, students must be current with their immunizations. Immunization compliance is documented by submitting a completed Universal Health Certificate to the school at the time of enrollment.
A series of medical forms, DCPS School Enrollment Packet.pdf, should be turned in to the school as part of the enrollment process, and any updated forms throughout the school year should be submitted to the school nurse.

 DCPS Anti-Discrimination Statement

 DCPS recently issued a new DCPS Anti-Discrimination Policy. To ensure our school communities are aware of DCPS’ commitment to preventing and addressing discrimination, all schools are required to update their school websites with this anti-discrimination statement and translations 

and submit confirmation of their update using this link: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1uUVDaL0mkSlvFQBiXDPixyBfXtmV62nDVCMFdIX5j4w.  Please note that this information must be placed in a highly visible location on your school’s website and changes must comply with website accessibility standards. Website accessibility standards require that web content is accessible to blind users, deaf users and those who must navigate by voice, screen readers or other assistive technology. (Update: Spanish, Amharic and Chinese translations now available)

Please find below our QR code that directs individuals to our website to register to volunteer.  If emailing is preferred, individuals can also send an email to volunteerDC@readingpartners.org.  Please share with your network and community. 

We also would like to invite your network and community to participate in our family workshops.
