Why does Simpson Middle School have a Foundation?
The Simpson Foundation was established to provide educational opportunities for Simpson students that surpass the standard curriculum. The Foundation can purchase equipment, build facilities, fund programs and pay staff salaries for programs not included in the Cobb County School District budget. The Foundation is a tax-exempt, non-profit charitable organization; every dollar contributed goes directly to fund programs and instruction for all Simpson students. We can pioneer new projects, fund capital improvements or buy needed equipment, but we cannot do it without your support.
Why should I care whether our school has a Foundation?
The government continues to cut funding for public education. A Foundation is the vehicle by which parents can contribute directly to maintaining the high standards we demand for our children. Students in a school without a Foundation have far fewer resources than students in a school with a vibrant Foundation whose programs enhance their education. Our students not only need, but deserve, a Foundation to provide them with the best educational resources possible in order to remain competitive in high school and beyond.
I gave money last year, why do I have to give again this year?
Every year the Foundation works to not only maintain existing commitments, but to pioneer new projects, fund capital improvements and buy needed equipment. We depend on your donations to continue to increase the school’s resources, even as the government makes less money available to the school. Making the Foundation a part of your annual charitable giving directly benefits your child’s education.
Does the money raised from membership cover all expenses?
No, unfortunately it does not. Our goal is to cover as much as possible with the money raised through the membership drive. We also sponsor special events during the school year to raise additional funds to replace equipment and supplies, purchase new technology and upgrades, and plan for future educational opportunities.
Why can’t students just learn from a book?
Imagine trying to teach your child a sport such as football, basketball or tennis. Could your child read a book and learn about the sport? Yes, of course, but will they be able to play the sport? Not really. In order to learn a sport, kids need to touch the ball, practice throwing or hitting the ball, and experience the sport as it was meant to be played. The same holds true for academic learning. To maximize their understanding and retention, students need to experience learning in a hands-on environment. The technology and educational resources funded by the Foundation enhance the learning environment for all students at Simpson.
How do I become a member of the Foundation?
Join online or complete the printable form. You can leave the completed form in the blue Foundation mailbox in the school’s front office. A thank-you note and receipt for your monetary donation will be sent to your home. Your membership will make a difference in providing outstanding educational opportunities for your child.
Do I have to be a Simpson parent to join?
No! We welcome memberships from grandparents, other relatives, alumni, community members and business owners. Please share this information with others or direct them to our website.
