Dear Sims Family, 

I am looking forward to partnering with you as we embark on an exciting new school year. I am very happy to be part of the Sims Elementary family as the new principal. I would like to say welcome to our new families and thank you to the returning parents and scholars who have supported Sims over the years. I am very excited about the new goals we have set for the year and the work that is going to be done to continue to make Sims a great place for any scholar to achieve. 

I am deeply committed to ensuring that we develop every child to his or her fullest potential in a safe, nurturing, and highly engaging learning environment. Sims Elementary is a leader in academic excellence and our goal is to continue to strive for excellence. We are rigorous school, that will provide a world class education to each scholar. We are committed to scholar success and in continuing to develop the scholarly mindset. Our staff will continue to set high expectations for each student here, and we will work collaboratively to achieve your goals. 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. 

I want to make this year a great year and I know together we can make a difference in the lives of the students we serve each day. Let’s work together to continue to make Sims Elementary a leader in academic excellence. 

At home, I urge you to be active in your child’s education. Encourage them to read outside of the scope of what is required of him/her throughout the school day. As we continue to teach the Georgia Standards of Excellence and prepare them for the amount rigor they are required to produce, outside reading will greatly contribute to your child’s success, not only in school, but in the world outside of the classroom. We have high expectations for our scholars and we expect level 4 effort from them each day, and you as a parent, can expect level 4 instruction from each teacher. We want to live by our school wide 2018-2019 theme: “Providing a World Class Education at the Ivy League” 

This will be evident in all that we do as we continue to put scholars first and work together as a team. It truly does take a village to raise a scholar, and we look forward to your continued support. Let’s have an amazing year!!!! 

Professionally Yours, 

Shavon Beckett
