Simpson Academy Winter Wonderfest was held on Friday, December 19th. Special guests from the Finance Department at Rush University Medical Center sponsored each of our students this Christmas. Our deepest thanks to them for bringing gifts and joy to us during the holiday season. We also had a special visit from Santa Claus, who was able to take time for photos with our students and their babies. Thank you to all who participated and joined us in spreading love and holiday cheer!
Students in our Literature for All of Us program have read Simone's books, Perfect Chemistry, and Chain Reaction. We were honored to have Ms. Elkeles spend part of an afternoon with us! Not only is she an amazing author, but she's also kind, funny, and down to earth. We were thrilled to have her speak to us and answer our questions about what it's like to be an author, where she gets her ideas from, and how she does research for her books. She not only inspires us to write our own stories, but encourages us to read books that matter to us. Thank you Ms. Elkeles for spending time with us!
