Principal for a Day 2012 – Simpson Elementary

It is always great fun to spend the day as principal. This year at Simpson Elementary School was exceptional. We had a Blessing Breakfast filled with good news and gratitude and a Thanksgiving feast with Indians and Pilgrims eating popcorn and cran-raisins. Bron-Gayna Schmit and her staff are wonderful. You can tell that they are committed to the highest standards for their school. It shows in the children's faces and the energy of the school.  This year the Norcross Cluster School Partnership awarded five grants to Simpson EC. It was a pleasure to be able to make and an advance announcement at the Blessings Breakfast to the grant winners. One of the winners is Roshan Finch for her Brown Bear Goes to Work career program. This was my favorite and it definitely a favorite for the children. … [Read more...]

LAN Systems and Microsoft have connected the Forsyth County Public Library with an Xbox Kinect and games for their summer program. At a recent Cumming-Forsyth Chamber of Commerce event, Library Director, Jon McDaniel, was the recipient of an Xbox provided by LAN Systems through the Microsoft Community Event program.  Jon saw value in using the Xbox for the library’s summer program so LAN Systems and Microsoft teamed up to donate numerous games for all ages.  The Xbox will travel between the three FCPL locations and will be used for a special summer program. With the Xbox Kinect, the player is the controller.  With a motion sensor, facial and voice recognition built into the unit, there are no remote controls or joysticks needed for play.
