Simpson Elementary School’s PTA, parents and business leaders in the Peachtree Corners area raised about $32,000 to replace its classroom smartboards.
The fundraising campaign focused on upgrading the school’s 45 Mimio technology interactive whiteboards. The smartboards are currently being installed across the school and will be in place for the opening of the 2017-18 school year in August.
“We feel these tools give our teachers the ability to expand their daily lessons with increased content and deeper context that amplifies the relevance of the curriculum for our students,” principal Bron Gayna Schmit said in a statement.
The capital campaign spanned the 2016-2017 school year as a centerpiece of PTA fundraising efforts.
