Words from Mr. Simmons...

We had a wonderful first week! Thanks for all your support. We are so excited and honored to serve as a partner in your child's education. Our teachers are getting to know the students and we have been working hard on procedures and on being a leader in the building. Thanks to everyone for the warm welcome that you have given me here at Dayton! It has been amazing and I know that it will only continue. I hope that you have a wonderful weekend!
