Adopted February 3, 2016
How it works:
2. Clip Box Tops from each package.
3. Send Box Tops to school with your child in an envelope or plastic zip bag.
4. Box Tops are sent in by a parent volunteer and the Kenwood HUG-PTO receives 10-cents each back as a donation!
Ten cents may not sound like a lot, but with appx. 250 students and 40+ staff members, it adds up fast!
Most years, we partner with a major Detroit sports team for a super, fun night out at a game and a portion of our ticket sales are donated back to our HUG-PTO from the sports organization.
While our annual Fun Run cannot occur this Fall 2020, we are looking forward to continuing this tradition in Spring 2021 when it is safe for us all to be together again. The Fun Run is always a great time for the students, parents and staff. All students and staff participate and parents, family members and community neighbors are welcome to join in the fun, too! By providing a monetary gift, this fundraiser is a successful and healthy blast for everyone.
On the first Saturday of June, the community comes together for a fantastically fun pub crawl throughout Downtown Clawson! This event is a blast as Kenwood Kid supporters enjoy food/drink specials, silent auction, raffle and music to each year's unique theme -- 2021 will take us back to the 1960s! So, mark your calendars for Saturday, June 12, 2021!
Enroll in Kroger's Community Rewards and indicate Kenwood Elementary School as your organization of choice. A portion of your spending will be donated back to Kenwood each quarter!

Meijer also donates a portion of your spending back to Kenwood! You must enroll in their program and can pay via cash or a Meijer debit or credit card.
On a scheduled Friday during most months, students and staff may purchase bags of freshly popped popcorn (popped that morning) for only 50-cents each! Popcorn is delivered to students at the end of the day to bring home and enjoy.
This is a very long tradition dating back more than 30 years at Kenwood and we are looking forward to continuing it as soon as it is safe to do so (post-COVID-19 pandemic).

Purchase gift cards that you already buy from a local store for a percentage of your amount to be donated back to Kenwood. The reason for the effectiveness of SCRIP is simple: families generate money through purchases they would make anyway - groceries, clothing, toys, gifts, gasoline!
There are three options to order:
1) ORDER FORM - these are sent home each ordering cycle (watch for future dates); complete the form and send it back to school with your child and a check made payable to "Kenwood HUG-PTO" for the full amount of your order.
2) ONLINE at www.shopwithscrip.com and set up a "Presto Pay Account" that you set up; or
3) ONLINE at www.shopwithscrip.com and send a check made payable to "Kenwood HUG-PTO" for the full amount of your order you placed online.

Each June, the new leadership of the Kenwood HUG-PTO meets with the Principal to review the prior year's Budget and prepare a proposed Budget for the upcoming school year.
This proposed Budget is then discussed at the first HUG-PTO general membership meeting in September and voted on for approval to use as a guide for fundraising needs and expense requirements for that school year.

For any costs expended on behalf of the HUG-PTO, a Reimbursement Form may be completed and turned in to our Treasurer for approval. Please note that a receipt for the expense must accompany the form submitted. The HUG-PTO will then issue a reimbursement check, once approved and confirmed the expense is within the Budget. PLEASE NOTE that most expenses are discussed and preplanned with the HUG-PTO (as they are usually in conjunction with an event or a Budget line item).
Approximately each month, the HUG-PTO Treasurer prepares and submits a Treasurer's Report to the general membership for review and approval. This monthly report provides a history of each month's income and expenditures and a comparison as to what was budgeted for each line item for the year.
