Out in the School Yard, Spring 3002 semester

Laurel Grove Primary: Spring 3002
last update/next update

Principal/Superintendent:  Illiana Greer. Teachers: Quinn Faulkner, Devon Summerfield

Students: Nichole Faithbucks, Santiago Juarez, Chaz Weber (all 6); Sergio Juarez (8); Sarai Richward (10); Marianne Richward, Denise Weber, Janet Webert (all 11)

The mid-morning assembly was not unexpected, but there was still plenty of trepidation.

“Good morning, Laurel Grove,” Principal Greer greeted.

A practiced chorus of “Good morning, Principal Greer” followed in response.

“Today is the day that we’ve been preparing for,” Mrs. Greer announced. “It’s testing day for the SPATs.”

“For those making the transitions to high school, it is an important step towards your futures. For others, it’s a tool to help you stay on track.”

“So relax and take your time,” she concluded. “And go out and do your best!”

The afternoon was spent by the older grades taking their exams, as the earlier grades took theirs in the morning.

Their exams done, the younger grades had the luxury of an extended recess.


Later that day, Principal Greer called an impromptu meeting at Laurel Hills Secondary.

She announced Deidre Faithbucks‘ appointment as a substitute teacher.

Nigel proceeded to welcome her.

Illiana further explained that Deidre would serving as a substitute until she finished her certification in education.

Deidre informed that she was halfway through completing a degree in Literature, until she left school after having her first child.

Adjoining the meeting, Illiana told Deidre that she valued her determination to finish her degree. She would be guaranteed a full teaching position once she completes her degree.


  • The title is from the song School Love by Anvil. For now on, the primary school updates will have this title.
  • It wasn’t until writing this post that I ended up adding two more NPC playables in the student pool, but I neglected to note their names and ages. The blond haired boy I believe is Nate Fontaine, and I think the blonde girl is Becca something. I’ll have it together next time, especially since I still don’t have all of my resident profiles up!
  • Nigel Hoyt is the Arcturian-Sim hybrid that Amelia discussed hiring some months prior. He will be a playable NPC (as will Illiana Greer and her family). There wasn’t a good shot of him before, so here he is:

  • Hot, isn’t he? I’m still trying to change his eye in SimPE to the alien eye default, but having difficulty. I’ll figure it out soon.
  • Yes, it was a very short post, but I was completely uninspired, due to my lingering grief over Amelia’s death. Thanks for reading!

  1. I’m excited that I will have a high school update finally! Marianne is turning 12 this year. Because there is now a playable in HS, you will also see Illiana’s triplets, Autumn, Summer, and Winter.
