American Cancer Society Walk

On September 19th,  the Atwood Primary School joined with Williams Elementary School for the 9th annual parade to raise money for the American Cancer Society.

Atwood and Williams students, along with parents, grandparents, brothers, and sisters raised $978 to support the fight against cancer. Children and faculty held signs honoring loved ones who are in the battle against this disease.  Local firefighters and police officers provided a safe escort for the children as they marched through the streets of Oakland!

Children from the Atwood School wore “Atwood Awesome” t-shirts donated by Shane Savage of the Oakland Pharmacy!
