Mr. Simpson's page

I personally want to welcome all students and families to the 2021-2022 school year.  I am excited that we are returning to a new normal.   I am so lucky to lead Penn Middle School, there is NOTHING I would rather  my profession.  My teachers and your children come together daily and make incredible things happen when learning.  As I circulate the building, I am in awe of this process.  Please know that EVERY child in Penn Middle School is very important to me.  I am ready to listen to your children, my teachers, and you to make the learning environment at Penn Middle the best it can be.
