 $20,000 - A special activity bell schedule will run on Friday, Sep. 16 so that     all students can play appropriate games on chrome books and/or listen to    music (with earbuds).



Also, when we reach our $20,000 goal, the coaches will “walk the runway


plank” at the Spirit Week Pep Rally. You definitely don’t want to miss this!

Simmons Middle School PTO


Thank you for your interest in the Simmons Middle School Parent Teacher Organization. The purpose of the PTO is to promote the welfare of students, to volunteer time and financial support for projects, and to facilitate communication between home and school. Simmons Middle School is a wonderful learning environment staffed with talented and caring administrators and teachers. Our parents volunteer countless hours and provide invaluable support that aides the staff in providing the best learning experience for the students at SMS. Our students are learning to be resourceful, responsible, and respectful, and the PTO is an active participant in that process.                                                                                                            


 Here's How You Can Help Simmons


-          Box Tops, found on the outside of packages, can be clipped and turned in to the main office once school resumes. Coach Bean sends them in during the year, and the P.E. department is able to use the earned money for P.E. equipment for students. To find a list of participating products, click on the link:


-          Campbell Soup Labels should be turned in at the main office. Coach Bean also collects these labels and turns them in for P.E. equipment used by students.


-          Pop Tabs are collected by Ms. Wade and can be turned in at the main office. The tabs can be found on cans: aluminum, vegetable/soup, pet food, tuna, etc. They are recycled and the money raised helps to fund stays for families at The Ronald McDonald House while their child is receiving medical treatment at local hospitals.


-          Publix Partners in Education asks that you show your Publix school card every time you check out at the register. No matter the size of your purchase, Publix returns a portion of what you spend back to Simmons. You do not need a new card every year. Just use the one that says ‘Simmons’ and the school receives credit. You can also swipe multiple cards if you have them for other schools. If you do not have a card and did not pick one up during the year, they will be available again once school starts. Watch for more information.


-          Simmons Middle School Wish List contains three items that the school always needs: hand sanitizer, Clorox wipes and Kleenex. The school would appreciate any you are willing to donate since they are depleted regularly.
