Young Story Tellers - The Big Show

McKinley students had the opportunity to make their imaginations become reality this past Friday, April 28, 2017. For the past few months, they worked very hard with their Big Brother and Big Sister in partnership with Young Story Tellers on writing and fine tuning their stories to have it acted out. Young Story Tellers have a simple mission and that is to inspire young people to discover the power of their voice. Using one-on-one mentorship, students learn how to write original stories and see them brought to life on stage.

EV3 Lego Robotics

After 1 trimester of coding under their belts, one 4th grade class has earned the opportunity to program our five EV3 Lego robots. Students spent 8 weeks in the computer lab understanding how programming works using Google CS-First. Once they completed all the lessons, they were ready to apply their critical thinking and collaboration skills on the robots in the STEM lab. Students were given design and programming challenges and you can see their work in the photo album.

LCAP Parent Survey

Dear Parents,

The State of California requires that school districts develop a Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP). The LCAP is a critical part of the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) which requires school districts to gather input from students, teachers, parents, community members, and public agencies to determine the goals, actions, and budget priorities for the district. Data from the California Dashboard must be used to determine funding priorities which are based on the State's Eight Priorities. Please click on the heading for links to the survey and more information.
