Hello! I hope you had a great summer and I am excited to begin a new school year with all of you. Over the course of this upcoming school year, we will learn about so many new things and discover so many new ideas that you will be amazed at how much you have learned. I am looking forward to getting to know each and everyone of you this school year. I would like all of you to come into school the first week ready to share two things that interest you or that you like to do, such as playing video games or hanging out with friends.Here is an example: Let me tell you about myself. My name is Mr. Simon and I am a huge Phillies fan, even though they stink this year! Chase Utley is my favorite player. I enjoy reading, watching tv and movies, spending time with family and friends, and playing Ultimate Frisbee. I have played Ultimate Frisbee since I was a 10th grader in high school, all the way back in 2008! That was the same year the Phillies won the World Series!I want to know what you enjoy both in school and outside of school. Together we are going to have a great school year filled with fun times and lots of learning. If you have any questions or concerns throughout the school year, please do not hesitate to come to my classroom in 224C.Enjoy the rest of your summer and I will see you September 5th!
