Principal's Message

Dear Parents, Guardians, and the Continental Community,

My name is DeVon Simon, and I am honored to serve as the new principal for the Washington Middle School Continentals! As next year approaches, I want to express to you my passion to build upon the solid foundation that has been laid for all Continental students! We have phenomenal teachers, staff, and a school community. I believe our collective vision and strength will be the direct catalyst to propel our students towards increased academic achievement and opportunities for personal development. As stated in our vision, I strongly believe in the importance of preparing all students for high school, college, and careers. All students deserve the best opportunities!

My professional background is rooted in Social Studies, Multilingual Education, English, and Administrative Leadership. For the past four years, I served as the assistant principal for Glenwood Leadership Academy. I have also served as an academic coach, middle school classroom teacher, and principal intern for several EVSC schools.

Two primary areas of our school improvement are highly important to me. I believe the success of our school is determined by the climate and culture created by the staff, parents, and school community. Likewise, our academic achievement is impacted by strong student-teacher relationships and parental engagement. Ensuring a solid foundation in these key areas will be a priority. Therefore, your support and engagement will be vital to our school’s continuous improvement.

In addition to my professional achievements, my greatest personal accomplishment is my family. I am married to Jerry Simon Jr., an army veteran and licensed nurse. We have two handsome boys named Jerry III, age 5 and Jackson, age 3.

Again, I am honored to begin serving you and the Continental Community next school year! Please do not hesitate to call the school, email, or visit my office with additional needs or questions.
