Let me begin by expressing my humility that I have been chosen to be the principal of James Simons Elementary School, A Montessori Focus. James Simons has a long and impressive history, and I look forward to building upon its traditions and successes—working with you and the community to meet the needs of our students.
We have a dedicated faculty and staff whose sole mission is to prepare your child for college, the workforce, and life. We are committed to Charleston County’s Vision 2016. We are dedicated to increasing student achievement and closing the achievement gap.
There is no doubt that we have a great school; however, there is always room for improvement. I understand that our work is never done and that providing the best for our students requires hard work and a consistent review of our progress. A crucial part of that process includes getting feedback from you! Please know that the faculty and staff want to have an open line of communication with you. We must work together to ensure student success. If at any time you have questions, concerns, or suggestions, please contact the school. Our relationship with you is critical. Remember, we are one big family working together for the success of our children.
In closing, it is my desire that your child feels safe, loved, and cared for when entering the doors of James Simons Elementary School. Please know that your child’s school is a special place. It is special because of your child and your active participation.
Thank you for your support, and I look forward to many exciting and engaging years at the best school in CCSD!
