Midge Simmons, Principal
It is with great pleasure to introduce myself, and my family to Belle Plaine Elementary students, staff, and patrons. I am very excited to begin the 2016-2017 school year as your principal. My husband Tom, daughter Lexie, son Niko, and myself are elated to be a part of the community of Belle Plaine and begin a new chapter in our lives. Tom will be teaching language arts at Belle Plaine Middle School and both Lexie and Niko will be students at Belle Plaine High School. So, the Belle Plaine schools will have at least one member of the Simmons family in each of their buildings!

I have been an educator for 19 years after making a transition from the business world to the education world. After obtaining my second bachelors in elementary education, I began my education career teaching fifth and eighth grade in Garden City, KS. After ten years, I completed my masters from Kansas State University and moved into administration. For the last nine years, I have been the principal of South Hutchinson Elementary.

I would like to thank Dr. Sutton and the Belle Plaine School Board for the opportunity to be your principal. I am passionate about children and providing a safe and welcoming environment for learning. I believe that an educational team is a family who is responsible for the care and education of our students. As an educational family, we will put children first to make a positive difference in their lives. I am looking forward to meeting and working with all students, staff, and parents as a part of this educational family.
