Pasos hacia la graduación:
Many of you have given generously to our Atkinson School Foundation. Giving means your time volunteering and/or your donations monetarily. Both help provide extra funds for staffing at Atkinson and both are very much appreciated. Thank you!
With the support of our principal, Ivonne Dibblee and Site Council
the dollars donated last year are being spent to fund our library and
technology lab assistant which supports the goal of providing technology
learning for our students at Atkinson. It is our hope to continue
funding additional staff to support our students educational needs here
Please press Donate for Atkinson Foundation
To continue to support the Atkinson foundation please:
• Select "Donate.”
• Be sure to select Atkinson Elementary School as the recipient.
Box Tops for Education:
If every student collects just 10 Box Tops then Atkinson receives over $500! Clipping Box Tops is an easy way for you to help our school buy what it needs. Any time you purchase participating products (General Mills, Betty Crocker, Yoplait, Green Giant, Kleenex, Ziplock and Hefty to name some), clip the pink Box Tops off the packaging and turn them into the office. Attach them to a Box Top Buck to be eligible for prizes. Every Box Top counts! For a complete list of participating products, visit:

Atkinson is now part of the Amazon Smile Program! Amazon Smile is a simple and automatic way for you to support the Atkinson PTA every time you shop, at no cost to you. When you shop at smile.amazon.com you'll find the same prices as amazon.com, with the added bonus that Amazon will donate a portion of the purchase price to your favorite charitable organization.
Thank you for your support!
A Message from the Principal
Whether you are dropping your child for the first day of kindergarten or you are a veteran Atkinson parent, the start of the school year is always filled with emotion and excitement. We want all of our students to be happy and successful. We hope that you find the experiences at Atkinson enriching and rewarding.
Thank you for trusting us with this great responsibility. It is truly an honor!
