Welcome Letter from Principal

Welcome to Blanche Sims Elementary!  I am very honored and proud to be the Principal of this wonderful school.  Like all the schools in the Lake Orion School District, Blanche Sims is an exceptional school that offers a first class educational experience while preparing children for successful futures in school and beyond.

At Blanche Sims, all students follow the rigorous Lake Orion Community Schools curriculum, while regularly outperforming the state and county averages on state assessments in all core subjects (reading, writing, mathematics, science, and social studies).  Led by an outstanding staff that is completely dedicated to each and every student, our school is second to none. Everything we do at Blanche Sims is data driven and student centered with the goal of having all students exceeding grade level expectations.

Blanche Sims is a close-knit community school that gives students unique experiences both during school hours and after.  We work relentlessly to ensure that all our children have their needs met academically, socially, and emotionally.

I look forward to working with students and families to provide the best education possible for all children. If I can ever be of assistance, please contact me at (248) 693-5460 or at
