All middle schoolers (incoming 6th graders through outgoing 8th graders) are invited to attend one or all of these community sessions at any of the middle schools. Every week, students will have the opportunity to participate in a variety of activities: book chats, make & takes, makerspace, virtual field trips, writer’s corner, and good old-fashioned reading.
End of the Year Instructions for Chromebooks
All 8th graders will be turning in their Chromebook and charger the last week of school. Students attending summer school at Legacy will be issued a different Chromebook on their first day of summer school.
6th and 7th graders will have the option of keeping their Chromebook and charger over the summer or turning them in the last week of school.
If your 6th or 7th grader will not be returning to Simle next year, your student will need to turn in their Chromebook and charger the last week of school.
If your student is a distance learner, their teacher will be communicating the dates and procedure for turning in their Chromebook the last week of school.
