SimpleQpon Fundraiser

Now is the time of year that we normally send home a SimpleQpon book for you to sell (and consider purchasing for yourself) as a fundraiser for our PTO. However, with the students still not in school, we will be doing this year’s SimpleQpon fundraiser a little different. 

Coupon books are available for sale in the school office beginning Wednesday, January 6, 2021 during school office hours: Monday-Friday, 8:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m. 

Coupon books contain coupons for over 150 local restaurants and businesses all over Northwest Indiana (not just Merrillville/Hobart). 

Many coupons are BOGO or ½ Off!  Books are $20 each. Cash or checks only. Checks will need to be made out to “John Wood PTO”. Our PTO will receive 50% of the sale. 

Last day to purchase a book from our office will be Wednesday, January 20, 2021. 

Coupons don’t expire until Dec. 31, 2021.
