Our yard sale in February was a huge success, raising over $1200 for James Simons staff and students!
Redux, in partnership with Friends of James Simons, invites James Simons students 6-11 to participate in our Home Is Art: Case Study Project, a collaborative summer learning workshop.
This year's fundraising focus is on Teacher and staff appreciation and support! We will be sponsoring teachers for their Montessori continued education programs, making sure they are stocked with all necessary supplies, hosting free yoga after school and loading our library with new books.
This year's teacher outreach has included dinners for the staff before PTA events and the staff holiday party.
Our Student Outreaching missions have included After school enrichment program scholarships, the start of our free after school running club, Bookfair sponsorships, and the Christmas Dove holiday gift drive. Over $500 donated for Mrs. Bryant and Mrs. Greene to purchase holiday gifts for James Simons students.
Our fun fall FoJS events have included the James Simon's Uptown Way of Life family cook-out and Fitness Fair, Running Club and the "Monsters Inc" movie night.
Warm welcome to all the new students and welcome back to our James Simons families, we are very excited to kick off this school year with our annual fall cookout! The James Simons school has partnered with the Charleston Promise Neighborhood organization to put on the "James Simons Uptown Way of Life" health fair and potluck Saturday, September 30th from 2-5 pm at James Simons. This years event aims to promote healthy living among our community with obstacle course fun, jump castles, Barre and Yoga demos, health screenings, a show case of local restaurants, and more! Along with your help of bringing in a favorite dish to share, we hope to have a great day of fun, food, and friends.
The PTA has done it again with an amazing night of dancing, food, and friends.
As many of you who attended already know, The Greatest Love Family Ball was a hit this year, from the delicious chicken, green beans, and rice, to the jams that kept the crowd jumping, singing, and laughing with friends. Having a good time comes almost as second nature to the staff, students and parents of this amazing school. Boys and girls held hands while weaving through crowds of dancing parents and grandparents. Students enjoyed introducing their parents to their peers and new friends they made that evening.
The night's feast was kicked off by Glory Connolly, who surprised her parents with saying a blessing for the school before dinner service. Stories and jokes were shared, as the James Simons community sat together and enjoyed a Valentine's Day dinner.
A better evening could not have been had, Thank You James Simons PTA!
The inaugural James Simons Yard & Bake Sale was a huge success! We raised over $1500 for both the Friends of James Simons and the Middle School leadership trip.
A big thank you to all the generous families who donated a variety of items and to our middle school students for their delicious treats.
