Give Back to Simpson Teachers and Staff

This season we are especially thankful for all we have and want to give a little extra to those hardworking Simpson Teachers and Staff who do so much for our students! 

Please help PTSA fill our Teacher and Staff Giving Tree with $10 gift cards to show our appreciation.

If you are able, please donate either by dropping off one or more $10 gift cards to the decorated drop box in the front office or if no time to grab cards, you can donate online below and we will purchase gift cards with the online donations. 

Please send in gift cards in $10 increments only—if you wish to give more than $10, please send multiple cards, or donate via the website in any amount. Gift cards to any favorite places are appreciated…some popular suggestions include: Amazon, Target, Chick-fil-A, Uber Eats, Starbucks, Dunkin’, Publix,  Kroger, etc.

The donation link will close at midnight on December 11 to allow time to purchase cards. We can accept actual gift cards through December 12.
