Planning a Reunion?  If any other classes are planning reunions, could they please send details and dates to Judy Chapman at chapmanb@nbnet.nb.ca or Tammy Kilpatrick at kilpatrick.tammy@sourceatlantic.ca​ , or post or send us a message on our alumni face book page.  It is always good to get information out early so grads can book their vacations and make plans to attend.

    

Yearbooks for Alumni 

Looking for a great gift for a friend or family member for a birthday or early Christmas gift? The Simonds Alumni committee has new yearbooks to sell. We have books from almost a variety of years (only a few years sold out).  The yearbooks are being sold for $35 (no tax) each! So, if you did not get or misplaced your own yearbooks, or wish to surprise someone with a great gift of memories, please contact Judy Chapman at chapmanb@nbnet.nb.ca​ or any other member of the alumni committee.


Simonds Memorial Grove

Over several years Simonds has planted trees in memory of several teachers and students who have passed away. Recently, the Simonds Alumni decided to partner with the school Environmental Club and a couple of local businesses to plan some improvements to the school grounds. This initiative will take place over a couple of years. As part of this plan, we are hoping to have some more trees donated and planted in our memorial grove. We are seeking individuals or grad-class years who wish to donate a tree in memory of one or more individuals. We invite classes who are planning reunions for this or upcoming years to please consider placing a memorial tree in memory of several deceased members of your class. What a beautiful way in which to remember a classmate / friend / family member! The approximate cost of a tree is $150. Other plans to improve the school grounds include an improved "landscaped" area with flowers and benches in front of C building, improvements to current benches, increased tree wind-block around the sports field & more. Please message or email (chapmanb@nbnet.nb.ca) me or any other member of the Simonds alumni committee if you or your class / group would like to donate a memorial tree or if you would like to a part of this worthwhile initiative to give back to your school. Thank you for your assistance with this worthwhile project.​
