We're updating our school's technology and working toward creating new programs. Please take a moment to donate if you can. No amount is too small. Help us improve our school and provide new programs for our students. Thank you!
Over the winter break, the Simpson Academy computer lab received a much-needed make-over! New monitors, new chairs, fresh paint, and updated CPUs. Thanks to Principal Velasquez, Ms. Martinez, Mr.Vargas, and all staff who devoted time and effort to make this possible. We're improving our school everyday!
We hope everyone had a wonderful time at our Simpson Academy Carnival. Please take a few moments to watch a slide-show video of our day. You might see someone you know! ;)
Last week juniors and seniors visited the Circuit Court. They had a chance to watch trials in action and talk with judges. Afterward our Butterflies had lunch at the Allegro Hotel, and listened to guest speakers,women's business leaders and entrepreneurs. A wonderful experience for everyone!
The Simpson Journalism and Media Production students have been working on making commercials. We wrote, directed and filmed them ourselves. Here are a few we've finished. Stay tuned for more to come!
If you're wondering where we've been, there's been a lot of changes this past month. We've had our first class of 2013 receive all of their credits for graduation in January! We have also started our new courses. That means we give our thanks, and say good-bye to the previous journalism staff, and welcome a new staff! We've been working hard on learning about journalistic law and ethics, as well as what makes a story newsworthy, and the journalistic pyramid-style of news writing. We will continue to bring you the latest happenings here at Simpson Academy. Stay tuned!
The New Simpson Journalists: Maranda Bishop (not pictured), Dominique Greer, Maria Hernandez, Luz Rosales, Pamela Seals, Tanesha Williams, and Kennetha Dorsey.
