Do not wait until the last minute to register as you may find you cannot use the device you thought you could register on.

Remember the deadline is this TODAY!

Reminder to all juniors who will be taking the ACT on April 3rd.

The Simley High School Bands hosted and participated in the Minnesota State High School League Region 3AA Instrumental Large Group Contest on March 6th. Five schools and nine bands performed musical selections for a three judge panel. The Simley High School Wind Ensemble and Symphonic Band each received the highest overall score of "SUPERIOR." Each judge scores the musical selections on tone quality, intonation, rhythm, balance and blend, technique, articulation and other performance factors, such as the choice of literature, appearance and conduct.

Thanks to the parents and students who helped make this event a success!  Mr O and the Band Boosters could not do this without your assistance.
