Volunteers

Volunteers

Volunteers are always welcome at Atwood. Please coordinate a day and time with your child's teacher to volunteer in the classroom.  Volunteers can range from making copies to working with students on basic skills to attending field trips and parties.  Be sure to complete a PDF Documentvolunteer form (you can get one in the main office) and submit it to the main office.

Student Attendance

Attendance

Establishing a routine of attending school regularly, and on time, is very important for young children.  It can create stress for a child to miss too much school or to walk in late to his/her classroom once school has already started.  Please make regular attendance a priority for your child.  Be sure your child is getting adequate sleep at night, and consider removing electronics or other distractions from your child's room to ensure that good sleep is taking place.

We understand that children do get sick, and that there will be times when not coming to school will be necessary.  Please do not send your child to school if he or she has a fever or has been vomiting.  If your child becomes ill during school, we will contact you to pick up your child.

If your child is going to be absent from school, please call us at 586-493-5250 and press 5 for the attendance line.

Fundraising

Fundraising

During the year, Atwood will conduct various fundraisers. In addition to "one time sales" we also have various fundraisers that are ongoing and help us to raise funds without families spending additional money

Boxtops:

  • Atwood collects Boxtops for Education.  These can be found on various food packages.  Clip them and send them to school in a baggy or envelope marked with your child's name and teacher's name.  Be on the look out for Boxtop contests throughout the year!

Kroger:

  • Register your Kroger Plus Card so that 1% of your purchase will go towards Atwood.  You know you've done this by looking at the very bottom of your Kroger receipt.  It will say that you are supporting Atwood.  Each Plus Card must be registered annually.
