Ms. Beckett

Greetings Sims Family,

It pleases me to introduce myself to you as your child’s principal. I hope to have the opportunity the remainder of this year to get to know as many of you as possible, with hopes of working cooperatively with you to make your child’s learning experience an especially positive one.

As your principal, I remain dedicated to advance our school and to remain focused on scholar success in academics and in continuing to develop the scholarly mindset. Our staff will continue to set high expectations for each student here, and we will work together to assess the school’s strengths and areas for improvement to continue to move toward excellence in all that we do. We want to ensure that each of our boys and girls are challenged and we are preparing them to be college and career ready. Every day we will aim high, armed with passion and purpose; I am challenged and motivated to lead the school-based community and to engage all stakeholders in the realization of the school and district goals for our school and our scholars.

Do know that, I want to continue the successful traditions, procedures, and processes that are currently in place at D.L. Sims. With the help of our remarkable staff, involved parents and committed scholars, we will continue to come together to make Sims a wonderful and unique place. I look forward to meeting each and every one of you and getting to know the families that make up this one big happy family we call Sims Elementary.

I am currently transitioning and will be at Sims three days a week until May 25th. After that date, I will be present each day. Please plan to stop in and see me at your earliest convenience. I look forward to meeting each and every one of you and to answer any questions that you may have.

Again, I look forward to meeting and working with you. Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to work with your child. Rest assured that we are here to work cooperatively with you to ensure the best possible education for our scholars.
