Simpson Elementary raises $32K in capital campaign

Simpson Elementary students will soon receive 45 interactive whiteboards thanks to a $32,000 capital campaign focused on technology upgrades in every classroom.

The campaign centered on replacing Mimio technology interactive whiteboards for teachers from kindergarten through fifth grade to create an interactive learning experience. The new Smartboards are being installed across the school and will be in place for the opening of the 2017-18 school year in August.

“At Simpson Elementary we’ve nurtured a long-standing commitment to integrating technology resources into our students’ daily learning,” Principal Bron Gayna Schmit said in a press release. “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.”
